    Pros

    Good Salary with terrific support staff.

    Cons

    Senior Management have no clue of how to push pass their earning plateau. Every 3 months a new direction that goes nowhere and no consistent agenda. The strongest product Level 3 has going for itself is the CDN product, otherwise its network is long due for updates and a complete overhaul. Compared to competitors like AT&T , Verizon, BT, etc. , Level 3 has NO differentiating value that sets itself apart and convinces clients that they are worth using.

    Develop your brand Level 3 and decide who you are and strengthen your support model which is severely lagging!

    I have been working at Level 3 Communications full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent pay and a lot of vacation time, some people are really great to work with

    Cons

    The company keeps operating more lean and lean, pushing their employees past the brink of capacity. I have co-workers who are working well into the night (past midnight) on a routine basis. With our recent acquisition of Global Crossing, they have been abusing people for months and then laying them off when a project is finished. It's an awful place to work.
