    I've been at ADTRAN for a long time; it's like my second family.

    Serendipitous Tech Titan of the South

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRespected name in the industry. Friendly. Scrappy/fighting culture focused on technology and winning market share

    ConsLacks organization. Do more with less mentality. Very flat organization, so very few opportunities to progress upward. (lots of opportunity to go horizontally). Pay is less than industry avg (result of being HQ'd in the South vs. Silicon Valley). Work/life balance has taken a toll over the years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake into account employee professional development.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    Had a very positive work experience at ADTRAN.

    Co-Op Engineer (Former Employee)
    Huntsville, AL

    ProsThe pay was competitive with other co-ops and they really found meaningful work for each co-op to do. I worked with three different departments during my stay at ADTRAN and felt like I was truly helping contribute to the team and doing meaningful work.

    ConsCan't think of any real cons, the entire experience was great and they really care about their co-ops. I didn't have one bad experience here.

    Great place to advance career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Huntsville, AL

    ProsLack of micromanagement
    Opportunities to learn
    Friendly staff
    Open-door policy
    Never a dull moment

    ConsLack of managing in certain individuals/groups allows for overly relaxed atmosphere leads to festering of problems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest in key individuals. Get engineers into the field to interact with customers more often.

    Great place to work

    Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Huntsville, AL

    ProsFamily atmosphere. While there is some stress to get the job done, employee-employee and employee-management relations could not be better. Very enjoyable work environment.
    Very talented engineering team, everyone pulls their share.
    Management is conservative (long history of profitability) and accessible.
    Traditionally low turnover.
    Excellent facilities.

    ConsGrowth has slowed compared to 10 years ago and the workforce is still relatively young making promotion opportunities hard to come by.
    Benefits aren't bad, but for a company that prides itself on hiring the "best & brightest", overall compensation is a little low.

    Company good, Huntsville... boring

    Co-Op Engineer (Former Employee)
    Huntsville, AL

    Pros-One of the few big non-defense companies in town.
    -Solid engineering folks.

    Cons-Huntsville is a small city. As such, it is very boring for someone from a larger city.

    Adtran is a good company, it is a good laid back place to work

    DVT Engineer (Current Employee)
    Huntsville, AL

    ProsAdtran is a conservative company that is steady. You are not in constant fear of losing your job. The work is challenging and fulfilling.

    ConsAdtran is very conservative on compensation. It's benefits are also pretty pricey compared to other companies I have friends working for.
