    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.

    Not the company it used to be

    Channel Marketing (Current Employee) Huntsville, AL

    ProsNice facilities, some good perks if you are in the Huntsville office (on-site gym and nurse). Traditionally, they were a stable place and rather laid back.

    ConsThere is no clear direction coming from management and the only thing that seems to matter is the Wall St bottom line. Everyone is overworked and being tasked to do more with less. Morale is pretty shot.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome up with a clear vision to take the company forward. Invest in your people, new technology, new ideas to turn the company around.

    Inconsistant Management Team

    Production Operator (Former Employee) Huntsville, AL

    ProsClean buildings and very laid back company.

    ConsManagement and HR are inconsistant with the company policy. The policy is what ever they want it to be at any given time and with any given employee. The maufacturing management team will not stand up for you,or at least not some. Management both manufacturing and HR are not very professional, but yet they tell you that you need to be. Management talks bad about other comnpanies and they have not worked anywhere but ADTRAN, so how do they know. Not professional in my opinion. Some managers hide information from the employees because they do nopt want the employees to use the program.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll managers should have the same policy. You work for the same company. Stop hideing information from the employees. Be honest with your employees. They help the company make money.

    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.

    a small company with a rural mentality

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Huntsville, AL

    ProsLarge offices. Cafeteria is decent.

    ConsThe 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.

    "Good place to work if you enjoy the job you're doing"

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Huntsville, AL

    ProsThe general environment is very positive and the work is rewarding. The campus is beautiful, and the benefits are good.

    ConsThere is no path for advancement and the salary is not competitive. Last year's raises were lousy despite stellar company performance.
