    Great place to work.

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

    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)

    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)

    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.
