      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 with minimal job loss. Thoughtful & authentic communication through town hall meetings and great deployment of collaboration tools. Most important, the WDM products are outstanding and with OVN they are now an NFV and Ethernet powerhouse. Bottom line: One of the best companies I've worked for.

      Cons

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

      Pros

      Global company with very diverse backgrounds, my job gives me the ability to impact employees through Recruiting, Benefits, Training, Organizing Events. Enjoy the use of Lync to keep everyone communicating globally. Very fast-paced environment; high pressure but the good kind of pressure that pushes your limits and helps your grow.

      Cons

      Sometimes there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything but not a bad thing.
