ADC Telecommunications Reviews
67% of the CEO
Pros – Good benifits and good people. Job was interesting for a while. Healthcare was great and the PTO policy/amount is better than i HAVE SEEN ANYWHERE
Cons – No career development or real opportunity for advancement. It just was not in the culture there to try to move people around or upwards. The pay is below average- this is a stated policy to pay below the median range of camparable companies/positions.
Advice to Senior Management – There really needs to be some attention paid to people development. The opportunity to grow in ones career is severely lacking.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros – ADC's benefits and compensation are at least at market rates, if not above. The company does an excellent job of promoting and work and life balance for its employees. I have never had a problem in getting the time off I need approved. The corporate facilities are also very nice and are in a nice location, close to plenty of restaurants and shopping.
Cons – Career growth is either meteoric or non-existant. If you don't find a way to distinguish yourself, you could find yourself doing the same menial tasks month after month for years. If you get on the growth track, the rise can be quick and powerful. Additionally, communication is horrendous. Senior leadership does a pretty decent job when they try, but middle managers and supervisors really struggle in this regard.
Advice to Senior Management – Communicate better.
Pros – Great people in operations and engineering.
Cons – Slow growth, management is not very competent, not many opportunities for professional growth. Watch out, your job will more than likely get shipped to China.
Advice to Senior Management – Stop focusing on costs and focus on customer satisfaction and quality of product and services.
Pros – Learn SAP and knew a lot of international colleagues. SAP is a very useful software that is applicable almost everywhere :)
Cons – It is very unstable to work in ADC as the management was too stressed as their jobs were on the line before being bought over by Tyco Electronics
Advice to Senior Management – Not application
Pros – It's a job - you got hired
Cons – From what I saw, every time a manager quit/got let go, their whole staff would change. Had to bring in their own people, which will be the first to get laid off when the next manager changes
Advice to Senior Management – Think before you implement
