"The company is working to increase diversity and inclusion, but currently many technical parts of the company have significant gender bias and discrimination. Be prepared to accept the glass ceiling or else find the areas where women are allowed to break through it."

"Run away. Think of it like an internship and collect the experience you need but don't expect a rewarding future. Alot of contractors do work from home full time which is great for Moms but you are siloed and paid poorly for the pleasure."

"I was severely and blatantly discriminated against and with undisputable proof. My boss's boss intervened only after I engaged HR and tried to help but it was a little too late. I had been given a grossly unequal opportunity compared to my male co-worker, it was too late for me to make up for the 9 months of not having a reasonable account set to hit quota. I was basically given an account set with less than $1B potential IT spend, and my co-worker (white male - I am minority female), of similar experience, who was hired 1 month after me, was given $5B more opportunity.

"The cloud organization was progressive and supportive of women. The traditional (telecom) organization was not. The 1 woman on the CTL Exec board was asked to retire. She was back-filled with a man. No other women in senior leadership roles. Cronyism from the top all the way through."

"The time is not flexible but they have good benefits. "
"Almost 28 years with the company tho' it's only been CTL the past 3-4 (they bought Qwest, who bought USWest, which was Pacific NW Bell). Corporate culture says diversity and fairness; reality is quite different. Without union representation, things would be much worse and there are MANY positions without union protection. Front line work forces are expected & required to do mandatory overtime, work weekends and holidays at the company's discretion. Failure to meet expectations in ANY aspect of the job results in discipline up to and including termination. Safety is being sacrificed for expediency. Proper records and engineering are being abandoned as CTL was never an regional Bell operating company (RBOC) and doesn't seem to know how to work in compliance with RBOC & federal regulations. Bonuses are a joke; mine was $200 in 2015, about $137 after taxes, and I am at top pay in my job title with excellent metrics. 401(k) matching has declined, health insurance costs have skyrocketed, but they get us new uniforms every year. There are no proactive projects; CTL seems to prefer to put out fires, not prevent them. Women in the field are becoming VERY rare-I am the last in my city. I am looking forward to retirement as soon as possible."
"Knowledge and contribution is key working at CTL. Women and men seemed to be treated fairly for reviews, promotions, etc. Women do have representation at varied levels of management."
"very long hours and forced overtime. They don't care about you getting to spend time with family. expect you to meet sales quotas but 99% of calls are billing related."
