    I worked at AGC Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    US sub has potential but its waning.

    Cons

    poorly managed, cash flow constricted and saddled with a problem acquisition. two different cultures, Indian vs. US and under market compensation. now on a tight leash from Mumbai so I only see it getting worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire some competent US management and keep hands off in order to give it a go.

    I worked at AGC Networks full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Had many talented people and good engineers.

    Cons

    Did not know how to focus on any strengths, more interested in throwing everything against the wall and then fighting over what sticks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what you want to offer then build a team to focus on that offering.

    Pros

    Not many pros for this company.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of after hours work, promote management with no college degree, and no vision. Ran like an India company in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward experience, education, and hard work.

    I worked at AGC Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people- Wonderful bunch, always ready to help and assist you.
    Exposure to different OEMs- For someone who just started his career, I was exposed to a plethora of information and got to learn everything from ground up.
    Flexible Work hours

    Cons

    Salaries- During my tenure, the salaries did not come on time. There would be a delay of 7 to 10 days, with the maximum going up to 18 days!
    Claims and other reimbursements did not happen on time too, but I hear it has improved.

    Management- The new management is trying to work things around. A huge 'Organizational Restructuring' is being carried out as we speak. Lot of good, hard working people were given the boot, while others stayed. Very unfortunate.

    Work/Life balance- Working on weekends is normal here and there might be times when you work 7 days a week. Personal life might suffer.

    Pros

    Nice place to work and learn if you carry a good attitude, eagerness to learn and patience.

    Cons

    Management team of each and every region differs..
    Most of the managers are not supportive to their team in any aspect.
    Giving wrong commitments to employees knowing everything.
    Management and managers not able to take a solid decision even about freshers because of some reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HR policy sucks.... Knowing the situation of the company you have to compensate on few of your policys and give confidence to the employees.

    Try to retain the current employees mainly hardworking and talented engineers by paying them reasonable money, instead searching for a senior resourse from market for high salery.

    Pros

    The people - helpful, determined and experienced. The sales teams and sales enablement are industry veterans with tons of experience and a well-connected network.

    Cons

    Bad compensation, in a cash crunch, low commitment to customer values. No work-life balance. The company seems to be in a limbo between varying values post acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lack of competent compensation and career opportunities do not hurt one's career as much as lack f responsiveness to clients. The cash issues and the way we react to it impacts much more than just short-term business.
