Pros

Work is incredibly interesting and diverse across a multitude of disciplines. Life/Work balance is great, as are the flexible hours. Work force has tremendous talent in a number of areas.

Scrambling for hours when a number of projects end at the same time. Top heavy and often clueless upper management.

Advice to Management

Cut out unproductive upper management in DC who are not adding value.

    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 Management

    Stand strong & TOGETHER
