    I have been working at ADTRAN full-time

    Pros

    Nice facilities, if you are in the Huntsville office (on-site gym and nurse). Traditionally, they were a stable place. Most engineers have own office - generally with a window. Facilities are best I have ever seen and Cafeteria is nice.

    Cons

    Depends on are of work. I found my position one of the most stressful places I have worked - with an overwhelming amount of work and many long hours. But I see many engineers who work much less - depends on how your manager distributes the work and how willing team members are to help.. Don't expect big raises. I have had better benefits elsewhere - 2 weeks vacation for first five years is a bit hard but not uncommon. I can't say I care for Huntsville that much. Deliberation on eliminating individual offices,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend a bottom up management reviews. Allow more Telecomuting - a large percentage of work can be done from home. Go for a flatter organization structure. Allow easier trasfer from one group to another.

    Pros

    Friendly people, good benefits and low turnover

    Cons

    Below average compensation and long hours in certain sectors of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure new senior level manager don't shove their prior company cultures down on existing employees.

    Also in your quest to become a larger company, don't forget your core competencies that helped get you there like employee retention rates.
