I worked at Level 3 Communications full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pays well, on site gym, nice campus, Many caring and wonderful people

Cons

Huge debt causes short attention span, never finish one thing before you go to the next. This often results in redoing things later

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be less desperate. Open opportunities to people from all of the companies, not just your old cronies from OK.

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good network but their customers have been telling Level 3 product management that they touch the network too often so the downtime that impacts them does not count against their SLA's.

    Cons

    Low employee morale. Very little opportunity for advancement. They took away our stock options. Product does not listen to the sales organization at all. Jeff Story has a history of running lean organizations which does not bode well for the service delivery and service management orgnanizations. Merit increases have been scaled back tremendously. Their debt hinders their ability to be nimble and flexible with products and pricing.

    Better than an ILEC, but that's not a high bar
