    Pros

    Debt load means there probably won't be any big acquisitions over the next couple years. Likewise it's probably not a great target for acquisition, either. I think there's a window here for the company to finally stop, take a deep breath, look at everything they've bought, and decide what to do with it. There's strong potential for them to craft a solid, concise offering.

    Nice Broomfield campus for taking walking breaks, decent cafeteria. Generally pretty flexible about working from home for various reasons.

    Cons

    The systems are a mess, and everyone will tell you that. There are growing pains from putting together two big companies, who each acquired a lot of companies themselves over the past several years. There's a lot of clean-up work to be done, not much of it is glamorous. It can be frustrating to need to work on several different projects at once when none of them have any precedent or direction. Most likely your actual job will be very different than your job description or what you interviewed for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make all of these acquisitions pay off by aggressively shutting down legacy systems, and giving those tasked with doing so ample resources and support. Be better about thinking about "purple" than "red" (legacy Level 3) vs. "blue" (legacy Global Crossing).

    Pros

    Salary is decent and management treats the staff fairly

    Cons

    Leadership is not fully committed to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more, invest in programs that give back to them and make them proud to be Level 3 employees.
