    Pros

    ADC is a very excellent company to work for in terms of work environment, benefits and encouragement from upper mangmt

    Cons

    Is little bit slow in terms of change, but new management is making a huge push towards change.

    Management has very good intention, but they should push people a little harder and create a sense of urgency and fast response environment
