    I worked at ADTRAN full-time

    Pros

    Decent compensation package, and plenty of "doers" that make things happen. The hardware engineering team produces quality products at competitive price points.

    Cons

    The Enterprise division is micro-managed to the point that director-level employees don't have the authority to make decisions and spend capital to invest in the future of the company. Although products tend to perform well, the company is generally not innovative and tends to implement features only after they've been proven in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your senior employees more decision making authority, but don't be afraid to shake things up if they're not performing or are incapable of making (good) decisions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ADTRAN.

    Interview Details

    College student interviewing for entry-level position. 8 hour interview process, cycled through about 10 different groups/managers. Each interview was different in terms of length (20 min - 1 hr), number of interviewers (1 - 7), type of questions, etc. Some focused solely on soft skills, some solely on technical questions, some were a mix. No breaks except for lunch which was also an interview.
