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

    Pros

    Friendly people that have been there a long time

    Cons

    Pay is low and no career path. They used to take care of their employees. The company is struggling internally in my opinion. They reward the people that suck up more than they work.

    Advice to Management

    Bad management in IT caused many of us to leave. Fix the internal employee morale problem or expect more to leave.

    Pros

    Great co-workers for the most part and excellent facilities

    Cons

    Understaffed for the projects the take on which has been true for a long time now. Even with transitioning to SAFE, they still do not know how to budget time and resources. Several past 'significant efforts/strategic customers' efforts have failed and management expects development staff to pick up the extra work with very little if any yearly compensation. Very little opportunity to advance and benefits/compensation...

    Advice to Management

    Adtran use to be an engineering company that produced telecommunication products that operators wanted to purchase. It is now trying to transition to a software based company with leadership that does not know anything about selling and delivering software.
