    I worked at ADTRAN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I actually enjoyed the work I was doing but that was independent of the company or my supervisors.

    Cons

    They are very cheap. You have to jump through hoops to even get paper or pens. They often hire temporary control employees rather than salaried employees so they don't have to pay benefits. They think they're clever in doing so but everyone is aware of their MO which creates a poor morale. There were several employees that were promised to be made salaried and that were just strung along. There is just the sense that your expendable so management that is their hold onto their jobs for dear life and often treat employees with an almost suspicious behavior because they're afraid to lose their jobs. When I first started, some employees warned me to be careful that other employees might feed you false information to make you look bad. It was one of the most bizarre place I've ever worked. The bureaucracy is like nothing I've ever dealt with as well and often hindered productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Make middle-management do their jobs. There's deathly a disconnect between the officers and employees. It always seem like the managers were just always trying to puff themselves up and will take credit for anything to do so. And just because the person has been there for ages doesn't mean that they're doing the job properly. Don't be afraid of change.

    Pros

    Great people. Decent tech in carrier spaces. Enterprise is weak by today's standards. If the sector goes weak, it's a decent place to park for employment.

    Cons

    Upper mgt is not dynamic nor very motivating. Absolutely zero career progression no matter how good you are. Good people sit for 10 years or more waiting for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    None. This company is what it is, it won't change
