Great in the past, losing vision now
Business Mgr (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: flexible work environment, reasonable benefits package, nice facilities at huntsville campus.
Cons: senior leadership does not have a central vision to share and guide the company.
Senior leadership does not have a central vision to share and guide the company. They are driving the company based on quarterly numbers expectations and keep pushing everyone to do more with less. This negatively impacts morale and reduces our ability to deliver to customer expectations.

Advice to Management
Develop and coherently deliver a simple and consistent vision for the company's direction.

Poor corporate philosophy
Test Design Engineer (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALJuly 24, 2014
Pros: fair amount of personal freedoms at work, little oversight, relatively low work load and relatively high job security
Cons: no upward mobility, poor management structure, few perks, bad interdepartmental communication philosophy, office politics, poor management, low comparative pay.
Company is a follower rather than a leader in its industry, and is ridden with office politics and poor interdepartmental communication philosophies.

Exciting and Friendly Company
Marketing Operations Assistant (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALOctober 21, 2013
Capable management and co-workers with a team atmosphere helped getting work done much more friendly and simpler. I helped to optimize the reseller program and it was exciting to be able to find out and discuss ways for improvement and the steps needed to get there. I learned the value of data management and providing solid reports on how to communicate strategy effectively.

Productive, organized, clean, professional
Productions Tester (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALJune 7, 2013
I used to assemble and test products made by Adtran. I learned basic co-worker interaction skills and developed my work ethic while holding this job. Management was effective without being overbearing. Consistently maintained good relationships with co-workers. The hardest part of this job was getting hired. The most enjoyable part of this job was the interaction between co-workers during assembly and testing of products.

Organize events and trade shows for the company
Corporate Events Manager (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALApril 26, 2013
Pros: adtran has a beautiful campus/work place.
Cons: management has changed over the years.
Currently working on over 200 events and trade shows on a crew of two event managers with the schedule increasing. I would have to say the hardest part of my job is the physical labor of packing out equipment and supplies for the trade shows. On the reverse side of things, the most enjoyable part of my job is getting to work with people from all walks of life, from all over the world. Over a 17 year time-span I've made great connections in the industry, put my organizational and people skills to daily use and continued to enjoy my job.

Stable company, and good people.
Global Operations Coordinator (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALJanuary 17, 2013
Pros: not micro-managed. free coffee and tea. descent benefits package and tuition reimbursement.
Cons: poor raises, compensation vs. job description mismatched.
I've been with this company a long while - and most who come to work here stay more than five years. There are rarely layoffs - and the structure is such, that if hard times come, people stay but you can expect some re-arrangement. If you can operate and adapt when change comes the better off and happier you will be as an employee.

It is true what they say, you don't mind not making as much money if you have a good boss. My manager is the best I've ever had. There are some managers within this company that are harder to work for - however, even the difficult ones will only make you better at your job.

Where engineers are treated like royalty
Design Engineer (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALJanuary 27, 2012
Pros: office with a view, engineers can do no wrong, engineers run the business.
Cons: huntsville al is a quiet southern town, it is not san francisco
Every engineer is given an office with a window. In fact the building was designed specifically to place all offices on the exterior of the building, and the labs on each floor are located centrally. No cubicles, natural light, and I even got to look out across the lake. Engineers are asked to move mountains, but they are well compensated and they gain a wealth of experience unmatched by many.
