Pros

ARRIS MTA and CMTS groups are strong and the products are solid. Technical and managerial leadership in these groups are industry leaders.

Cons

Some of the other groups within ARRIS are challenged by trying to integrate technologies and cultures as a result of acquisitions. These groups would benefit from leadership with vision for the product lines.

    Pros

    Bigband Networks had a lot of potential, its product line was industry leading and the company was initially employee oriented. Made for a good place to work.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions led to the company going downhill. It went from a employee friendly company to a penny pinching one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to give, company was bought out at the end of 2011.

    Former Employee - Senior Applications Software Engineer in Beaverton, OR

    I worked at ARRIS full-time for 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.
