    I have been working at ADTRAN full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Almost too laid back. Get the job done and you may never see your boss. Technically challenging. Always something new to work on. Open door policy so you can get information from just about anyone about anything.

    Cons

    Get the job done and you may never see your boss. I did list this as a pro, but it can be a negative. I've been here 7 years and talked with my manager about 10 times. Talked to my boss's boss about twice. No movement. It will take 15 years and everyone in your group to leave before you are promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move your engineers around or they will leave. Its not about the money, its about keeping the minds working. Working on different projects. The ones that know the job, promote.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADTRAN in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was first recruited at my University, and had a short interview. Few technical questions were asked at this point, and I was invited to interview in Huntsville in a few weeks. The onsite interview was a long day. I had 9 interviews, all with different departments. There were a few technical questions, but they were fairly basic. I asked a lot of questions about what each group did, but by the end of the day it all started to run together. Each interview was different. Some were with a single manager, but most were with a manager and a few of their engineers. The campus was very beautiful, and I got the impression that this is a very team-based workplace.
