Pros

Great place to work, learn new and different technologies. Ample opportunities to move up,

Cons

Unfortunately, Global Crossing no longer exists and was acquired via stock purchase from Level3, a company that has yet to turn a profit in it's entire existence.

Advice to Management

Listen to the front line and middle management. Give them the opportunity to convey how the direction of the company is affecting their groups and organizations.

    Pros

    People are nice, smart, professional, and most are great to work with. Work can be interesting, and there is room to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Management is crude, self-impressed, and condescending. Real feeling that the company exists for their benefit and employees are just the tools to get the work done.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like the assets that they are. Share profits or when the economy turns around you will be looking for replacements.

    Pros

    Good benefits. 401k match. Bonus, even when targets are not met. Engaged Senior leadership team, accessible and very visible.

    Cons

    Vision and company goals do not translate down to departments. No real way to determine how daily work really determines if you are helping the company reach quarterly metrics. Direct report managers and directors have no clue of vision and direction of department work and more engaged in politics.

    Advice to Management

    Direct management needs to have more vision.
