    I have been working at ARRIS full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    It's a job. Not a great one. The cafeteria is nice, though.

    Cons

    It's an old boys network that favors executives over regular employees. They're happy to step on the backs of the regular guys so that they can give out the good bonuses to the upper management. For instance, I just had my review today. I was highly rated yet only got a 1% raise. That didn't even cover the yearly increase in healthcare costs. Also the company just got sold to CommScope because there was no real direction...

    Advice to Management

    Maybe talk to your regular employees more...or pretend that we exist.

    Stop expecting your customers to innovate for you. Venture into other segments and markets if you want to survive. Parking can be a problem sometimes. Encourage your employees
