    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Worked here starting in 2000 remote. Incredibly talented team of engineers delivered many firsts in the industry with an impressive top notch global network. Perhaps 50% of the engineering team worked remote and yet due to use of communications tools (eg private irc server) remained closely knit. A great team you could grow in.

    Cons

    The fat years were awesome, the lean years were emotionally challenging as serial layoffs and years of bankruptcy proceedings wore on.

    Advice to Management

    Well you're part of Level3 now.
