Pros

Good people, decent values, freedom to work without micromanaging, stable company

Cons

Low pay, no room for advancement, low emphasis on up-to-date technology

Advice to Management

You established an IT department because you needed it. But you've since left it adrift. The technology you use affects your IT employees and when you casually toss out good technology for cheap technology you force your best IT employees to leave in order to protect their own careers.

    Pros

    ADTRAN has many very smart and nice people. The work is challenging and technically current. The campus is beautiful. The company is getting better at providing good career paths. Within engineering, there isn't too much politics. The company is relatively small and local, which is better than being a remote division of a huge corporation.

    Cons

    ADTRAN business environment is one of disruptive technology changes and stiff competition. The company's size will present many challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Compete harder for technical talent. Deal with long-time employees that have gotten too comfortable and aren't contributing enough.

    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.
