    Pros

    Any average company would have

    Cons

    Bunch of red necks. Hire Co-ops to prevent less hiring full time(thereby pay nothing as compared to full-time). They will just keep you hanging in air. Co-op with some other company where they hire Co-ops for full time after graduation

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep candidates hanging for no reason. Be direct.

    Pros

    Large offices. Cafeteria is decent.

    Cons

    The company although being in technology and a high growth sector is very conservative in terms of its investment policy. Projects are undertaken and are pursued half heartedly. Has a small under funded engineering team spread too thin across multiple sectors. Management looks to spread its feet in every possible sector without adequate investment. Has outdated technology in several areas. Future isn't too bright based on the technology roadmap for the organization, already facing intense competition in several areas. Also if you move to Huntsville, remember this is the only telecom company for hundreds of miles. Better to rent than to buy property here. There is not much going on in HSV.

    Pros

    ADTRAN has a nice campus and nice facilities

    Cons

    ADTRAN has changed for the worse over the last 5-7 years. Politics and finger pointing is becoming more rampant. Management has an extreme lack of focus. Moral is on the decline, with many long time employees exiting the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back Mark Smith's management style and leadership.
