Great Company...for now.

Senior Sales Engineer (Former Employee)
Broomfield, CO

I worked at Level 3 Communications

ProsYou get to learn everything from optical technologies to IP based services. The way employees pull together and support each other is unlike any other telecom company.

ConsThere is a complacent attitude of just treading water that starts at senior management. Now that the network is built the senior management doesn't know what to do now.
Warning to anyone on commission; If you pass 100% expect your quota to be raised - retroactively. Level 3 does not like to pay out for success. Just maintain 80% - 90%.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive someone else a shot who actually wants to run the company and build for the future instead of the "flip"
