    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdd resources where needed, a total headcount never paints the whole picture

    Nowhere to go.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Kirkland, WA

    Pros1. Hard-working and friendly coworkers.
    2. Decent benefits.
    3. Lots of recognition for work. Regular raises and bonuses.

    Cons1. Very little room to move up within the company.
    2. Takes longer to be promoted compared to a much larger company.
    3. The company moves very slowly when making decisions.
    4. Teams are often understaffed.

    Working at ARRIS

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood methodology and processes, the benefits are above average, good people

    ConsThey do not reward high performers, above director level they lack diversity. At the executive level they lack diversity.

    Great Experience, But Frugal Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI like the people. Benefits are industry norm.

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

    As a contract technician, you are there to serve generally temporary needs and expect no loyalty in treatment.

    Network Technician (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGaining experience in broadcast facilities.

    Can stay busy if willing to travel.

    Most of the other contractors are good people and down to earth.

    ConsArris boasts about their future and appreciation for their support techs, but provide no professional appreciation.

    No benefits.

    Tell you on Friday you don't have work next week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you're installation side is of importance to you, try treating your contractors better and you will keep the optimum talent around.

    Steady Employment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Co-Workers. Most are very knowledgeable in their field. ARRIS has most of the typical Employee Benefits - 401k, Education Reimbursement, Health.

    ConsLittle chance of advancement. It is a good place to be employed but not a great long term career choice. Most of the management that I have met are skilled negotiators. If you would like to stay for five years you should get what you would expect to be paid in five years going in because chances are you will not get to that point otherwise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider advancements from within the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great technology company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsSchedules 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 Senior ManagementNeed 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a very challenging place to work at.

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Horsham, PA

    ProsIs very people friendly. Very relaxed work hours. Most managers are open to discuss flexible work schedules

    ConsPromotions are very hard to come and totally depends upon your manager. You might find folks under different managers at a higher grade than you but with lower skills and experience. Not a very motivating place to work. Management does not truly know how to reward high performers or take action on low performers. Very top heavy. More mangers than actual worker bees. No clear product or solution strategy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should try to get the product or solution strategy across to all employees as soon as possible.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
