    Pros

    They treat coops very well, a very good start for anyone's career. According to Adtran's shuttle driver, over 50% coop and intern students return to Adtran after graduation.

    Cons

    I merely worked at Adtran for one summer semester and really does not feel uncomfortable at all. Thus I have no cons to share, folks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Adtran is very good for all interns and coops. Even the shuttle driver told me that more than 50% coops students return to Adtran.

    Pros

    Great project for internship. You have a lot chance to learn new cutting-edge technology and actually do a lot of work; Work-life balance is good too; Manager is really nice. You can work from home for a couple days as well.

    Cons

    Sometimes come to here may take more time than expect. Especially if without a car.

    Advice to Management

    Manager is really nice and eager to help new people to catch up to speed quickly. Not much complain.

    Pros

    All of the senior engineers that I met were open to questions and took the time to explain concepts. The facility (Huntsville, AL) is beautiful which added to the overall positive experience.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of hardware opportunities.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Work environment fosters teamwork. Beautiful campus that creates a refreshing work environment. Employees are smart, hard working and helpful.

    Cons

    Communication can sometimes be difficult between departments. Forcing hardware and software teams onto the same timelines and expectations can cause issues.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    company 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 Management

    Too 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.
