I have been working at Level 3 Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of desire to dominate the world of communications. Well capitalized. Generally pays very well. Beautiful campus set near Denver Colorado.

Cons

Difficult to accomplish some projects because of "pocket veto". Overly focused on capex expenses as opposed to operating costs. Has become less agile as it has grown larger and larger.

    I have been working at Level 3 Communications full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible work option, decent co-workers, decent management. Not afraid to embrace new technologies.

    Cons

    Worker morale is low. Most of the work seems to be integration issues, no "new" development. Company seems confused about where it's headed. (probably reflected in the stock price)

    An unhappy group of negative people coming from Level 3 who don't know what real team work is.

    I have been working at Level 3 Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are no reasons to work there. Unless you enjoy going to work every morning listening to people in missery and complaining.

    Cons

    Unhappy, undervalued staff. Staff in Level 3 is not the most important assess. In Global Crossing they were continuously voicing that their most important assess along with customers was employees. They could not exist without our motivated and exception workforce in GC. Level 3 is completely different. They don't care about their work force at all. There's the door if you don't like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember and value your employees... you wouldn't be able to operate without them. They seem so miserable they could just walk out at any minute. What kind of management does that to people?
