    Pros

    As small/few as there are, solutions architecture team is fantastic. Very willing to attend meetings and assist with designs.

    Cons

    Trying to be too many things at once, with only a clear strength in telephony. Not very flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Organize sales leadership.

    I worked at AGC Networks (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technical people who are willing to do what needs to be done for a customer. Good intentions and they want the company to succeed. Pay is competitive from a salary standpoint. Most of the services and support people have worked together for awhile which makes for better production and working culture. Acquisition brought fresh air into the business from a sale relationship and broader customer approach.

    Cons

    Leadership knows what they know and really not willing to learn new things. Most of the business is tied to products and manufacturers that are in trouble, rely on legacy support or in flux. For a company of this size it takes awhile to get things done due to culture issues and the lack of true accountability management. Sitting on a great Global support model but not sure what to do with it or take steps to open the channel.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability should be managed and addressed at all levels of a business. Stay focused on the growth of the company and what actions can be done to allow everyone to be successful. Focus on what you do well and expand it through making hard decisions on legacy business and create more ways to sell and support your core. Less talk, more actions and trust.

    Pros

    Good Work Life Balance, good workplace for self-motivated employees. Followers will struggle

    Cons

    Company direction is blurry sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a path and follow it.

    I worked at AGC Networks (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, talented and dedicated people. Years of fun with great people.

    Cons

    Non-technical people making IT business decisions that don't make any sense and often will fight against reason when it favors them or makes them look "busy."

    Sub-standard pay. No perks. NO work / life balance. If you work a 20 hour day, you're expected to be back at 7am.

    Little investment in infrastructure and software until it's too late. Over investment in areas that aren't making any money or supporting the infrastructure.

    Constant band aid approach (do everything with nothing) and then you're chastised when things aren't running well or perfect.

    Margin seems to be everything even if it means losing longtime customers

    If you like a lot of management overhead, this is the place for you.

    Has gone way downhill since acquired by AGC.

    Advice to Management

    I could say a lot, but I doubt they'd listen or care.

    Not many pros for this company.
