May or may not a good place to work depending on where you are in the company...until their next round of layoffs.

Senior Architect (Former Employee)
Broomfield, CO

ProsAbove grade pay. Good benefits. Great location.

ConsTop heavy with mountains of upwardly mobile manager/vp wannabe's. Lots of management with too few architects and engineers. Now outsourcing to india. This leading to eroding technical competency.

Many vertical fiefdoms have arisen, leading to pillars of incompetence with no where to turn for problem resolution. In some cases teams were taken en mass from acquired companies.

Technical criticism, regardless of merit, leads to employee's not being 'team players' , and thus fodder for the next round of layoffs.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess project managers and Directors, VP's, more end to end architects who understand the products and technical challenges the company faces. Your powerpoint presentation isn't getting work done.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working for L3 Management at this site is why I'm leaving the company.

    I have been working at Level 3 Communications


    Pros: Good money, but not comparable to the field. It's a great entry level stepping stone to… Cons: Management doesn't communicate with employees effectively. Management has control issues over every detail in your life- Why do I have to ask my regional manager… Advice to Senior Management: Replace your management with competent people. The site I'm at is losing about six out… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
