    A Great Place to Earn a Check for a Few Years and Play Office

    Pros

    Extremely low effort required. The parking lot isn't full until 9:30AM, and it's emptying out around 3:30 each day. A colleague had enough down-time while working there to start and operate his own web-based business.

    Cons

    The people who work here are corporate archetypes. This IS "Office Space." The initial learning-curve involves lots of jargon. Everyone here is "swamped," and "so busy," until you walk buy their office and find them surfing the internet, taking a 2-hour lunch or having nonsensical, pointless meetings ALL THE TIME. If you really want to accomplish something in life, this is not the place for you. If you love playing office, it's a childhood dream come true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication here is abyssmal. It's a personality culture -- if you've been there awhile and someone likes you, you WILL become a director. I know of 5 personal assistants who became directors at Level 3.

    I worked at Level 3 Communications

    Pros

    Great people at Level 3. Despite the challenges with structure, direction, and a complete lack of senior leadership, I met many amazing folks.

    Cons

    Change for change's sake, inability to stick with a single course of action through completion, extremely high turnover at senior levels, "fire drill" and "diving catch mentality - behavior is rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Level 3 needs to place some high quality, committed, senior leaders in Executive management. There is a painful lack of true leadership capability in this organization.
