Pros

The knowledge and education of the people working there seems to be above most places. There are plenty of opportunities within the company since it is constantly changing. I have scored morale high since I liked working there, but I know the morale hasn't been that way with others still working there recently. Management tends to treat employees respectfully and treat them like professionals.

Cons

Level 3 seems like often times that it is changing too much without having any processes in place. One side of the company doesn't know what the other is doing. Process improvement is needed and documentation of that process is needed.

Advice to Management

Make sure that the left hand knows what the right hand is doing before making decisions. Sales are often selling products and making promises before knowing if the products can be developed.

    Pros

    Benefits packages are very good; bonuses can be good if you "play the game well"

    Cons

    You can't succeed unless you play the political game and CONSTANTLY market yourself. If you are the type to let your work "speak for itself" you won't get any recognition. You need to be able to manage yourself and manage your image. There is little to no training for positions at Level 3 - you are thrown into the deep end of the pool and expected to perform. There are constant re-orgs which means your supervisor is constantly changing, this means you have to be "proving yourself" and your worth on a continual basis and it can take years to move past "square one".

    Advice to Management

    Value your people beyond giving lipservice to them. If you invest in your workforce, they'll invest in you. The CONSTANT outsourcing and layoffs are getting old and show a lack of either workforce planning or true business knowledge.

    "Great if you live in Denver"

    Pros

    If you want to get a telecommunications job in Denver, it is one of the few places you can work. They have excellent benefits (health, dental, vision) and a generous bonus (20%). If you don't live in Boulder, Denver still has some affordable housing options. The campus is big and a lot of services are available to employees.

    Cons

    If you don't work in the Denver area you will be forced to travel there 2-3 weeks a month or sacrific any chance of a career path. Out of sight, out of mind.

    Advice to Management

    Sadly, the world does not revolve around the rockies.
