    ADC is a very excellent company to work for in terms of work environment, benefits and encouragement from upper mangmt

    Is little bit slow in terms of change, but new management is making a huge push towards change.

    Management has very good intention, but they should push people a little harder and create a sense of urgency and fast response environment
