Current Employee - Channel Marketing in Huntsville, AL
Current Employee - Channel Marketing in Huntsville, AL

I have been working at ADTRAN full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Nice 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.

Cons

There 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at ADTRAN full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clean buildings and very laid back company.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    All 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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Huntsville, AL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Huntsville, AL

    I worked at ADTRAN

    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 Has outdated technology in several areas.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.
