ADC provides a spectacularly positive work environment and provides a frequent and detailed vision for the company!

ADC is, hands-down, the best place I have ever worked! I am given complete freedom in deciding how to execute my work and the company provides the best resources to get the job done. The company culture is most inclusive, and goes overboard to provide an environment that promotes behavior, leading to financial and vocational satisfaction.

Freedom to be an expert in my field. The work I do is respected and appreciated. The company is a model to the community and mid-size businesses across the USA. The pay and benefits are amazing.

Great team, great leadership. Flexibility in work-life balance and I can innovate as much as I can with new projects.

I am able to work from home. I really feel connected to and really like the other people I work with. I like that the customers like us. I like helping customers.

I am free to do my job and not be micromanaged. I feel that I am part of a great team that works well together. Awesome team lead. Awesome company. Proud to work here.

I am paid well. I have great benefits. I am encouraged to make efforts to progress personally and professionally. I am given tools to achieve both professional and personal goals. I am treated with respect, courtesy and as a person who has value.

I get to decide how to solve problems, am given the tools to solve problems and know that if I ever have family issues, AutomationDirect.com will do anything they can to help me. I have been here long enough and have seen that AutomationDirect.com takes care of its family.

I'm so impressed with my co-workers, both on my team and throughout the company. I'm delighted to spend my workdays among this group of people. Also, I'm very proud that ADC cares to participate in such a positive way in the community and that ADC is very thoughtful about our interactions with customers.

Our customers love AutomationDirect.com. It feels wonderful coming to work every day and talking to so many customers glad to do business with us for the great value, great products and great service. I also love the positive morale among employees. Very uplifting!

The flexibility between work and home life is a need at the moment and ADC makes sure as a teamer, I have what I need, including the time needed to take care of personal matters. I feel the leadership of ADC has every teamer in mind as best they can. I feel wanted and I feel appreciated.

There is no other place I would want to work because of the way you are treated, the benefits and the people. This company is, and wants, to make you awesomer every day.

Unlike other places I have worked where you have to fend for yourself to get ahead and move up in the organization by becoming a manager, you can truly be a leader at any level here. You are paid fairly for the work that you do. You don't have to become a manager here to be compensated better and grow in the organization.

We have a culture here that is aimed at a balanced work, family, social and spiritual life. The combination of the positive work environment and the flexible schedules make this place awesome to work. I actually feel like ADC has my best interest at heart.

The people have, collectively, the best character of any workplace imaginable. It's easy to do our jobs because everyone understands our strategy and they have a teamwork-oriented approach.
