    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ADTRAN full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Beautiful campus...that's about it

    Cons

    Terrible pay and a manager that promotes brown nosing and back stabbing. If you're not in an Engineering dept then you can count on them to not treat you right or advance you. Terrible raises...they give you 50 cents and act like they did you a huge favor. Leadership has a "use you, burn you out, and throw you away" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Falling on deaf ears though, considering that over 500 people have left in the past year (many long timers) and you haven't done anything to fix it.
