    I worked at Ulticom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ulticom allows each employee to develop their career as they want. I was able to learn new skill sets and apply them to my position.

    There was also a lot of flexibility. You could run out to do an errand when you wanted as long as you got your work done nobody bothered you.

    Cons

    Typically the delivery schedules are very tight causing some stress trying to make sure software is robust within the short timeframe.

    The worst part was getting acquired by a Mavenir and having our positions transferred to their staff in India.

    Advice to Management

    The Ulticom management was great. They really appreciated their employees and allowed great flexibility to make the work environment very enjoyable.
