A shooting star that lost it's shine!

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Broomfield, CO

ProsLeading edge technology; Very bright engineers; Easy to work with peers and other EOs. Good benefits. Great campus location. Compensation package was very decent to start with. Level 3 was a company that prided itself on finding the brightest talent to work in a positive and collaborative environment. There was a time when it was both challenging and fun to go to work each day. Alas, no more.

ConsLack of recognition and reward. Management does not slow down enough to recognize solid performers in necessary but unglamorous roles. Promotions (like in a lot of companies) are heavy on relationship with management chain and less on best candidate.

Advice to Senior ManagementDeclare bankruptcy to remove the burden of debt. Focus on doing few things well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
