Pros

ADC has great people, casual work environment and cool technology. Office environment is very ergonomically friendly. ADC provides great benefits in terms of vacation/medical.

Cons

ADC is very conservative and changes happen very slowly. This has improved in recent years but is still a hindrance. The company is too focused on manufacturing/operations and not enough on sales/marketing. Also the company has poor branding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop processes that enable quicker decisions. Senior management needs to focus more on sales/marketing instead of manufacturing/operations. The company needs a branding makeover.

    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.

    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.
