Pros

good salary and benefits lots of process experience respected within industry lots of opportunities at contributor and middle management level ability to network within broader industry

Cons

overly hardware focused, software business lacks investment and sales focus overly process focused - takes up huge portion of workday and detracts from time that might otherwise be spent of business development and coming up with new ideas

Advice to Management

make decisions faster, be bolder, be more innovative, kill or sell off products that company does not really intend to grow, make sales organization more agile

    I worked at ARRIS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. One of the top vendor in Cable industry 2. Enjoy proven stability in joining a company which has a proven track record of technology leadership spanning over 55 years 3. Flexibility of working hours

    Cons

    1. Even though its a mid-size company internal promotion prospects are rare. 2. Not much focused in investing on individuals training and development. 3. Annual reviews are for namesake.

    Advice to Management

    Its a long road before they can effectively capitalize on the software company acquisitions they have made in the past. A lot of synergy needs to happen between the hardware and software division and it can only happen if management can work hard and prioritize this effort.
