    Pros

    good communication, people are generally on the same page so improvements are quick and supported. No level consciuosness.

    Cons

    split locations can be awkward, and the occasional person is a poor fit for the culture yet stays and makes life bad for others

    Advice to Management

    listen to the direct managers when rating employees instead of changing the ratings of the employee 4 levels below you

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at tw telecom (Littleton, CO).

    Interview

    Be prepared, if you are up against an internal candidate you probably won't get the job regardless of your qualifications or how well you interview. I have had 4 interviews and each time made it to the final 2 but the inernal person got the position. I have personally been told that I was a better fit but it was "political." Hopefully Level3 will do a better job and take external candidates seriously.
