    Good , could be better

    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

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

    Solid leader in its industry but slowly fading in future technologies.

    Sales Director (Current Employee) Horsham, PA

    ProsLeader in the industry, long standing relationship with customers, lots of experts in the company willing to share their knowledge and contribute to its success. Solid reputation in the market: ARRIS can deliver and will be around for a while. Lots of trust with customer base.

    ConsNo top talent retention programs, careers are self-built. A few Sr. leaders make most decisions, mid-level management has little empowerment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo up a notch in innovation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not the Best-and no longer in the area. Doors were closed and business moved to Philly.

    Cusomer Service (Former Employee) State College, PA

    ProsCasual dress code. We did have the ice cream truck come once a month during the summer.

    ConsSupervisor not a "people person" (in their own words). No real room to move up. Management wanted to keep you where you were.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop insulting your employees with a smile on your face. It's still an insult.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the performance review process, it is demotivating. Reward people from diverse background.

    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.

    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.

    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.
