    Pros

    Interesting projects, global exposure, much improved processes and systems. The company is still small enough to allow employees exposure across functional areas and to all levels of management.

    Cons

    ADVA is still much smaller than many and there is much competition for resources. Not all projects can be completed as quickly as desired.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive profitability to improve the stock price and increase flexibility Address the remaining pockets of low performers.

    Pros

    It used to be a fast moving, and growing, company with innovative products and aggressive sales strategies. Emplyees were expected to work long hours but the atmosphere was good and people were happy to respond.

    Cons

    Poor management. The Board of Directors were incapable of executing at the level required and this led to two board members leaving the company during 2007. However, the changes were, in my view, not extensive enough and more changes will be required for the company to recover some of it's earlier strengths

    Advice to Management

    In my view the opportunity to make internal changes has past. Now I would recommend that they look to be acquired so that competant management can take over. Unfortunately I doubt whether other companies would see any value in ADVA so I do not expect this to happen.
