    Current Employee - Senior Customer Account Representative in Horsham, PA

    I have been working at ARRIS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have a great schedule with allows me to have many weekdays off thanks to working 12hr days on what many would call a "fireman's schedule." Room for growth within is there, but then I would give up my schedule, which I love. Salary is acceptable if not quite good for the job. Large amount of PTO!

    Cons

    Other than having to wake up at 4am to be in the office, I really can't think of many cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to some of the minions, they might have really good ideas.

    Probably one of the best companies to work for but dependent on who your manager is and what business unit you work for.

    Pros

    Great benefits and decent compensation for the workload. The company values are terrific but good work life balance

    Cons

    Lack of direction. Way too many chiefs and not enough Indians. They need to really define proper strategy and stick to that strategy. Really no real career path focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great overall Executive Management Team. Simple wonderful and really a true employee rich company.

    I have been working at ARRIS full-time

    Pros

    Interesting technical challenges, helpful people, smart developers and QA engineers

    Cons

    Understaffed, head count expansion occurs overseas most of the time, where as issues are worked on in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add resources where needed, a total headcount never paints the whole picture

    I have been working at ARRIS

    Pros

    I like the people. Benefits are industry norm.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get a promotion, even when my work and experience should be rewarded with one. Additionally, appreciation and cheerleading for a job well done is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can't give people money, get them appreciation for their hard work.

    I have been working at ARRIS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with latest technologies and multiple projects. Travel all over the world and interact with different teams. Ability to chose career paths.

    Cons

    Schedules are always challenging and very place a high demand on personal life. Working weekends and holidays is the norm. Vacations are seldom email free and usually require constant checking of programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to find a better balance of resourcing projects versus bottom line profits. Teams are pushed to the limits with no room for unplanned surprises or opportunities.
