    I have been working at ADVA

    Pros

    There are so many strengths. Culture is transparency and speed. Management is honest and values the strengths of the employee base, while retaining a sense of humor and a genuine focus on having fun while being productive. Very little office politics and strong sense of teamwork both at Raleigh and across the regions. ADVA acquired Overture Networks and did a great job integrating the two companies in four months...

    Cons

    While many of the apps and office software tools are first rate, some are older, clunky and need refresh.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
