I have been working at ADTRAN full-time

Pros

Nice facilities, if you are in the Huntsville office (on-site gym and nurse). Traditionally, they were a stable place. Most engineers have own office - generally with a window. Facilities are best I have ever seen and Cafeteria is nice.

Cons

Depends on are of work. I found my position one of the most stressful places I have worked - with an overwhelming amount of work and many long hours. But I see many engineers who work much less - depends on how your manager distributes the work and how willing team members are to help.. Don't expect big raises. I have had better benefits elsewhere - 2 weeks vacation for first five years is a bit hard but not uncommon. I can't say I care for Huntsville that much. Deliberation on eliminating individual offices,

Advice to Management

I would recommend a bottom up management reviews. Allow more Telecomuting - a large percentage of work can be done from home. Go for a flatter organization structure. Allow easier trasfer from one group to another.
