Pros

fantastic offices and equipment
knowledgeable tech staff

Cons

greedy management-- stock options no longer given to non-managers
poor raises in the midst of booming business
only hire new grads for the most part

Place has went downhill since Mark Smith died. Mark spread the wealth among his engineers. Current Sr leadership acts like they alone make Adtran successful.

Advice to Management

Re-adopt Mark Smith management. Give ISO again. Give better raises. Hire people so that short-handed dept workers don't have to be at work more than at home.

    Pros

    ADTRAN has a nice campus and nice facilities

    Cons

    ADTRAN has changed for the worse over the last 5-7 years. Politics and finger pointing is becoming more rampant. Management has an extreme lack of focus. Moral is on the decline, with many long time employees exiting the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back Mark Smith's management style and leadership.
