I have been working at ADTRAN full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

During economic downturns they try hard not to lay off their full time workers. The open campus is nice without a lot of restrictions. Most manager are willing to work with employees to allow some flexibility between job and personal life.

Cons

They aren't the best at promoting from within the ranks. Most employees do not get bonuses.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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