    I worked at ARRIS full-time

    Pros

    I worked with some very knowledgeable people at ARRIS and they were always willing to help me improve my skills and knowledge. Despite a few high pressure situations everyone still remains professional; meetings and discussions never get heated or emotional. A wide array of sophisticated technology is frequently used so I don't feel like I'm writing code that could've been made 10 years ago.

    Cons

    Communication and organization is often a struggle with projects. Deadlines move, requirements change, and rarely is anyone but top management notified. People are free to make their own processes and workflows, rarely are things formally done except during deployment, and this leads to many people not knowing what is going on. Email is the preferred method of distributing information and that comes with many downsides, especially when looking up old information.

    Advice to Management

    There are many bugs and deficiencies in core products that are often fixed in the "next version". This leaves current customers with a broken product that we supposedly still support. There are also many common features that are added into the core product during almost every deployment yet there seems to be no plan to make these features a part of the core product. The segregation of the core developers and the "ad hoc" developers creates a lot of frustration when the same bugs continually need to be patched.

    The people who work for ARRIS work hard, work collaboratively and care about each other. The company provides a very good benefits package and rewards employees. The company cares about the concerns of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the concerns of the employees to make this a great place to work and the customers and shareholders will follow. Invest in helping the employees be the best they can be.
