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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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
