I have been working at Applied Communication Sciences full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Truly bright, often world class, people with strong desires to make a difference
Good corporate ethics
Consistently interesting work
Some of the previous GDoor comments on senior management were a bit broad brush. Our group views the NJ team as being strong, with good staff repo ire & good results (I.e., decent bonus payout for we worker bees), particularly the last few years

Cons

Their previously distinct Bell Labs/Bellcore/Telcordia identity has been diminished due to multiple corporate divestitures, spinoffs & sales by successive owners

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stand strong & TOGETHER

    Pros

    You can find real experts under one roof. Work/life balance is still valued and respected

    Cons

    Management is clueless. The track record for commercializing IP is nil. Considerable internal competition is hurting morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much management overhead. Some of the leadership should go on sabbatical, Making internal people fight for every proposal is not a growth strategy. Build long-term relationship with product companies and create a viable path for revenue besides contract research.
