Description

Never say never in the telecommunications industry. This is precisely what the young heads of QWest learnt after their manic adrenaline rush while writing off old-school US West employees and boasting of new rapid business models. Westword analyzes the full circle that QWest have come after nearly bullying over telephone company US West and firing their employees. Riding high on the stock wave soon after they took off, the new-age telecom player (QWest) were eaten up by the dotcom bust in the late '90's. Currently they face allegations of all sorts- from SEC filings to unfair pensioners policies and biased executive compensation packages.
