Nice company with family oriented structure, flexible and good learning scope since it has more than 1700 products.

I have been working at ADTRAN full-time for less than a year

ProsLearning, flexible, managers/leads with good technical understanding , free snacks :) in india office. atmosphere is positive and welcoming. Colleagues are nice and helping for a new recruit.

ConsThere are plans of further improvements and policies, but are been under taken with snails pace from higher management due to new establishment in India Office. No re-creation (Indoor) facility as yet.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are great plans in pipeline please implement it as quickly as possible to experience the benefits of it.

Great place to work.

Test Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Huntsville, AL (US)

I worked at ADTRAN full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat products. Facilities are top notch. Most people get their own office. On-site gym and cafeteria. They provide plenty of class lectures through-out the year from weight loss to skill training.

ConsYearly increases were low which caused a high turn over rate in my department. However, this was during the economy crisis in 2008-2010.

Adtran is still a great place to work

Test Engineer (Current Employee)
Huntsville, AL (US)

I have been working at ADTRAN full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe products are awesome and the campus is first rate. Good people in a good market. Although the environment is still good, it used to be much, much better.

Conscompany tends to run lean, which is a pro and a con. Often short handed but being over worked is more secure than being under worked and fearing a pink slip...

Advice to Senior ManagementToo much focus on business expenses rather than Engineering results the past several years has changed the atmosphere drastically and reduced individual productivity and/or creativity.

Great Company To Work For!!!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ADTRAN

ProsAs a co-op they give you alot of real world work and you aren't just running around getting engineers coffee.

ConsFor the first term you are usually put into a testing group. However, this is a necessary evil because you need to learn how the products work.
