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.

    I worked at ARRIS full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    I worked at ARRIS

    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 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

    No opinion of CEO
