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

    Pros

    1. Great work life balance
    2. Lot of visibility into how things work because of a medium scale of business. Not a behemoth like Apple where you get to touch a very small part of the business.
    3. Decent managers who respect employees.

    Cons

    1. Its tough to change things. If its not your job, getting a response on something will be slow.
    2. Nothing gets implemented overnight, unless the customer is about to cancel an order.
    3. Difficult to rise in the company without spending more than a decade or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hire a younger generation, instead of hiring people within the industry repeatedly. The company seems like the average age of an employee is 50 years. Need to hire younger people who will become future leaders.

    Pros

    Freindly working environment, flexible hours and work space, business casual dress code, hiring managers who care about their employees, desire to improve, lot of opportunity!

    Cons

    Recent merger has resulted in changes that while not monumental, will take time to adjust, because change is difficult no matter what kind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work - your support, honesty, and open door is the key to why I'm here.

    Excellent place to work, but that's highly dependent on who your manager is.

    Pros

    Good team. Great manager. The work is challenging, and not monotonous. Not everyone knows everything about the same customer issues you have to deal with, so working out technical issues is interesting.

    Cons

    Training quality for techs isn't good, if you don't have previous cable industry experience... and find someone who has both IT *and* cable industry experience is very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more training.

    Pros

    The compensation was good well within industry standards.
    Company is very understanding of work/life balance. A lot of very smart people in the Beaverton office.
    Layoffs were avoided whenever possible.
    The company would look to promote from within when a qualified internal candidate was found.

    Cons

    They are strictly suppliers to the cable TV industry so as the needs of the cable companies surge and wane they are vulnerable to the ups and downs of this one industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the business by selling to telcos like Verizon.

    I have been working at ARRIS

    Pros

    ARRIS has the best work environment I have ever been associated with. Their technology is cutting edge. I have the opportunity every day to work on leading edge products that our customers literally tear out of our hands. The company has a number one or number two market share in every market in which it participates. Management has articulated a great growth strategy and routinely updates us on progress and rationale for the strategy. Good communications top to bottom and back. Highly respected company in our industry.

    Cons

    The work hours are lonb There is never a good time to take vacation. The pay is just average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to increase the pay scale and lower the cost of health benefits. They should hire more people to lessen work load and allow more time off.
