Fantastic people

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ADC Telecommunications full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat culture, great customer focus. Manufacturing prowess consistently improved every year. People were highly motivated to win and get the job done.

ConsStructurally defective industry with over concentration serving Verizon and AT&T make it incredibly difficult to create sustainable growth. Over the years had invented some very innovative wireless technologies and smart connectivity that they just couldn't commercialize. Great culture had difficulty extending outside of a telecom centric mentality.

Advice to Senior ManagementTruly understand core manufacturing and technology and find a way to leverage into more adjacencies

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
