    Pros

    Great culture, great customer focus. Manufacturing prowess consistently improved every year. People were highly motivated to win and get the job done.

    Cons

    Structurally defective industry with over concentration serving Verizon and AT&T make it incredibly difficult to create sustainable growth. Over the years had invented some very innovative wireless technologies and smart connectivity that they just couldn't commercialize. Great culture had difficulty extending outside of a telecom centric mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly understand core manufacturing and technology and find a way to leverage into more adjacencies

    Pros

    ADC is very liberal & generous in vacation, working remotely, traveling to customers or facilities. BlackBerries provided & service. Health plan covers your children to age 25 & they do not have to be in college. The salaries are pretty good too.

    Cons

    ADC will change your job or position whether you welcome it or not. One day you can be a business leader in product management, the next day your new position is Commodity Manager. Nevermind if YOU never intended to take that career path. Some don't take this too well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We've come a long way in a short period of time. You, our leaders are trying with heart & soul IMO. Whether I agree or not with the new polcies, I stand behind the decisions & support them. We must move forward as a company & we will be stronger, leaner & fit to fight.

    ADC is a great place to work.

    Pros

    ADC has a high degree of integrity in how it treats employees and customers. Executives are very concious of the corporate values as they make decisions that impact the organization.

    Although ADC is a relatively larger firm, the atmosphere has a smaller company feel. Employees are friendly and eager to help those who ask for it.

    Cons

    ADC is in a very dynamic industry which requires periodic organizational change either through acquisitions, alignment of work to our customers needs, or simply organizing work to be more efficient. You must be able to embrace change and thrive in it. There are other "pocketed" issues the company deals with but no more than anywhere else.
