I have been working at Level 3 Communications

Pros

1. Proximity to home.
2. My seniority for vacation time (28 days now).
3. Work life balance that I've been able to keep so far (see how long it lasts).
4. Hey, it's better than indentured servitude at a small company that can't afford short term disability, basic benefits or any paid time off at all. :-)
5. I would say decent pay, but that's quickly eroding.

Cons

1. The culture is highly political and meaningful change is almost impossible due to top heavy org with little true leadership appetite for change. The management team must demonstrate their buy in for change if they really want it. Protecting "fifedoms" comes first.
2. "Leaders" who know nothing about true leadership and management practice.
3. A really whacked out review process with horrible bonus payout structure.
4. The more things "change" the more they stay frustratingly the same. Every re-org is a reshuffling of the same incompetent deck.

Advice to Management

There needs to be a re-evaluation of what really is critical to make this company survive then thrive and stick with it.

    Pros

    My work / life balance is very good. My immediate manager is acceptable. The campus is nice. It is located about 25 minutes from my house.

    Cons

    Senior Management is only concerned with their immediate pay. They have diluted the share price too much for the stock to be of any value.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn how to manage a business. In my personal life, I adhere to a budget so that I can meet my financial goals.


  2. You feel like you run through a maze blindfolded

    Pros

    For the most part, people are down to Earth there
    Decent Benefits
    Holidays and Vacation time are nice, plus extra half days

    Cons

    everyone complains, but does nothing about it
    Nobody takes responsibility, they are always trying to kick the issues to other groups

    Advice to Management

    Listen a little more to your employees. You seem to do whatever you want with out seeing how it affects the little guys (I.E. technicians, field and remote)
