    I have been working at ARRIS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, most people are pretty easy to get along with. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Very focused on commodity hardware so it's not ideal for a software person. There's not enough innovation as most of the technology comes from suppliers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on software and innovation. Eliminate excess 'middle management' and let the engineers have more freedom to push ahead.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at ARRIS.

    Interview

    Coming from an internal applicant, my experience might be atypical for an external applicant. The process was overall very informal. I submitted my resume and was contacted within a few weeks about an interview. I had one brief meeting (on the phone) discussing the position, what it entails, what technologies are commonly used, etc. I was given a few topics to study up on. The next interview was also fairly informal (phone interview) where I basically discussed my own experiences using Java, different projects that I had done, what technologies I have used. I was asked a few questions about race conditions, multi-threading, and Spring Framework.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you briefly describe the Spring Framework and what its advantages are?   Answer Question
    • What does the 'synchronized' keyword do when added to a method?   Answer Question
    • Describe the most complex Java project you have worked on.   Answer Question
