    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ARRIS full-time (More than 8 years)


    From 2wire, to Pace and now Arris, it just keeps getting better! The bulk of Arris management are the people we used to call Motorola, before the Googles bought Moto and carved out the cellular group (and the name) for itself. Arris is a stable company, with a solid customer base, and a clear future. They value their human resource most of all, and long term retention is the dominant pattern. Benefits are good, about on par with what is expected from a large enterprise. Work/Life balance is great, and partial work from home opportunities exist to help with that.


    The only con I have is the bonuses are on the low side, compared to what I was promised when I was originally hired. But to be fair they tend to pay-out, so despite being on the low side, they are consistent. The culture is a bit "dry", lacking things like Christmas parties, or other group appreciation events, despite the value they clearly place on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on making the promised Arris 2.0 improvements. This means reducing the time-lag of red tape that slows progress. There is not yet much visible change with the 2.0 initiative, but the continued attention to this, and the announcements of the incremental changes show that progress is being made. Perhaps an Arris 2.1 is possible by adding a little employee appreciation by budgeting for once or twice a year employee holiday/appreciation parties. The talent I see that leave on their own need a little more human appeal to complete the package... The cost per person is small compared to the cost of employee acquisition. Put Austin on your various lists of sites, some of the execs (like IT) seem to forget we exist.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ARRIS (Horsham, PA) in February 2018.


    The hiring process went really smooth and everyone that I talked too was very open and made me feel comfortable. It didn't take very long and the scheduling for interviews went smoothly.
