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

Pros

Flexible work option, decent co-workers, decent management. Not afraid to embrace new technologies.

Cons

Worker morale is low. Most of the work seems to be integration issues, no "new" development. Company seems confused about where it's headed. (probably reflected in the stock price)

Advice to Management

Get profitable?

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Level 3 Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    very intelligent and motivated coworkers. Good vision and leadership by CEO. Great headquarters campus.

    Cons

    Consistently understaffed in most areas of IT but chronically understaffed in infrastructure support. leadership arbitrarily cuts resources or moves resources to current emergency. This results in rotating emergencies with problems being addressed then that area ignored until it is a problem in subsequent years. Single minded focus on cost cutting instead of innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more funding for IT infrastructure. It has been underfunded for years which has resulted in very old equipment performing critical functions.

    I have been working at Level 3 Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture of collaboration. Great place to learn a lot of new skills and about the telecommunications industry. On-site gym is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Middle management manages upwards. Upper management isolated from employees and quick to engage in frequent RIFs that disrupt releases and team morale.

    Advice to Management

    Try and ride out the slow quarters instead of laying people off and killing productivity.
