    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ADTRAN as an intern

    Pros

    This is my first term as a Coop and I really like the company I am really excited to have this position.

    Cons

    I work in a lab so it can be difficult to deal with all of the fans that are running they make a fair amount of noise.

    Advice to Management

    I do not really have any advice for management at this time. I think everything seems to run smoothly but then again I have not been here that long.

    I have been working at ADTRAN (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at ADTRAN full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
