    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 ManagementAdvice

    I worked at ADC Telecommunications

    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 ManagementAdvice

    There really needs to be some attention paid to people development. The opportunity to grow in ones career is severely lacking.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Think before you implement

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on costs and focus on customer satisfaction and quality of product and services.

    Pros

    Good concept to co-locate a regional warehouse with strategic teams (Installation, Engineering, Project Management

    Cons

    Top heavy influence from corporate team, who were not in touch with the pulse of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would have been a good thing to get out and away from the corporate offices and listen to your work force.

    Pros

    Really good place to work, great people and relaxed worked environment. Benefits package better than other companies.

    Cons

    Company will make changes without informing employees of changes until after the fact. Communication between upper management and the rest of the workforce is non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your work force, they are the ones that meet customers daily and keep the company moving forward.
