Better than no job, but the personal cost and frustration is high.

I worked at Level 3 Communications full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Better than no job; nice campus; some groups are flexible with work hours and support work/life balance...but others patrol the aisles to see who is at their desk at 4:45 to identify who is leaving early.

Cons

Chaos, too many layers of management, frequently heard "just shut up and color" which means keep your mouth shut and just do what you are told...even if it doesn't make sense. MANY TIMES, it doesn't make sense and is the wrong thing to do. Frequent layoffs and reorganizaitons. Heavy testerone

    I have been working at Level 3 Communications full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people on the lower level, beautiful campus
    Industry Average Salary

    Cons

    Very poor kneejerk reactions by many members of management.
    HR will not help the low-level employee, and sides with Management.
    Large chunk of compensation depends on annual bonus as a percentage of base pay.
    High-Stress Management style leads to unnecessary problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's the point? I've shared plenty with them, but have observed no change nor reconcilation post-dicussion. Listen, I guess? I don't feel like you care.
