The job losses come a few months after the $11.6 billion deal officially closed, but they’re not the first round of cuts since CenturyTel has integrated Embarq. The Kansas City Business Journal said CenturyLink has axed about 1,000 workers; about half of those folks were employed in Embarq’s Kansas City operations.
More layoffs are possible, an investor relations spokesman told the Business Journal. CenturyLink executives want to make sure they don’t have different people performing the same duties, especially as fewer subscribers use landlines.
AT&T, CenturyLink and Connectwise are among those adding drama to telecom, IT and the channel since last fall. https://t.co/YTBVQGjWqt
