    Current Employee - Senior Director, Product Management in Horsham, PA
    Current Employee - Senior Director, Product Management in Horsham, PA

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

    Pros

    Very friendly and easy going culture
    Outstanding benefits
    Job Security is above average - Company is stable and conservative in hiring decisions
    One few tech companies who seems to care about employees
    As long as Bob Stanzione remains in charge, the company will be a family culture - one which cares. I believe that he cares about the well being of every employee.

    Cons

    Despite growth, many new jobs filled from external sources
    Some lingering us versus them from ARRIS and Motorola Home integration
    ARRIS will work you to death - but this seems common in USA with all companies - it is a buyers market
    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians
    Satisfaction depends highly on individual manager - the culture is not engrained

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't kid yourself that there is not a deep and active culture of us versus them in the legacy entities. If you do not actively work hard to break this, it will break the company. You can still stilt he legacy delineations in the organization structure - ARRIS leaders pick ARRIS employees, Mot employees pick Mot. We can not win as a group unless we get beyond this

    Growth company, runs lean

    I have been working at ARRIS

    Pros

    Flexible; job security; great benefits with percentage of salary bonus, employee stock purchase plan; growing company that is performing well

    Cons

    Advancement is slow to occur; raises tend to be standard percent increase not keeping up with industry norms; has become a bit more compartmentalized since the recent merger

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set raises and salaries consistent with industry norms

    Current Employee - Supply Chain Manager in Horsham, PA

    I have been working at ARRIS full-time (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.
