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)

    I worked at Level 3 Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Very good network and some very smart technical people work at Level 3.

    Cons

    Incompetent management team. This company has never made a profit but is still in business. If the managers make a mistake or provide poor leadership you can't say anything or you'll get fired or given a poor performance rating. Only people with connections are promoted. There are many Directors and VP's who are not qualified for their positions. Many incompetent people work there and can't lose their jobs because they're connected. Worst company I've ever worked for or been associated with. The Broomfield office is full of strange people who are out of touch with reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break the company apart and sell the pieces off. Too much debt and the management team doesn't know how to make a profit.
