I have been working at ADC Telecommunications

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.
