    I have been working at ADTRAN full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is conservative in business philosophy but aggressive in selected product development. As a mid-size company, we have the resources needed to invest in the business for the long-term

    Cons

    Organic growth is highly valued as opposed to growth through M&A. That can be good and bad. It just depends on the area of the business which has the most potential--these typically use most of the resources.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Maintain aggressive projects for key technologies in which the company can establish long-term ROI

    I worked at ADTRAN as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    ADTRAN allows interns to work on the core components of their systems alongside full-time developers, which allowed me to learn a lot about networks, programming best practices and effective problem solving techniques.

    Cons

    The atmosphere throughout the company can be a bit competitive and intense at times, which drives everyone to perform to the best of their ability but at times seems to introduce some inefficiencies.
