    I have been working at ARRIS

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the performance review process, it is demotivating. Reward people from diverse background.

    Great Experience, But Frugal Company

    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.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

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

    I worked at ARRIS as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Gaining experience in broadcast facilities.

    Can stay busy if willing to travel.

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

    Cons

    Arris 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at ARRIS full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Promotions 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Moto Bureaucracy Crushing What's Left of Arris

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ARRIS

    Pros

    Merger has resulted in increased Retail Bottom Line For ARRIS

    Cons

    The old Moto organization still exists and is jambed with people who do nothing but generate paper and meeting requests to justify their positions. This increased burden is smothering the efficiency that made ARRIS profitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand-up for he standards that made ARRIS a success. Pull the Moto organization up to ARRIS standards instead of letting them drag ARRIS down into a bureaucratic mess that doesn't accomplish anything.
