    I worked at ARRIS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A paycheck. If you are in the good ole boy network.
    If you work at Arris not the companies they buy out and fire everyone!
    If you work at Arris at any of the overseas locations.

    Cons

    Very political.
    If someone is nice see what they get out of it.
    They just moved the company overseas to avoid taxes. If a certain movement to tax those products more then arris will be in the dog house and public enemy #1.
    Lack of training
    Lack of upper mobility in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Quit bucking the system and pay your taxes like a normal American company.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. Medical insurance cost is low, generous vacation policy, 401k match.

    Cons

    Upper management is disconnected from worker bees. Motorola Home was the downfall of what was once a really good company. After that acquisition, the company culture changed for the worse. Recent layoffs have left many of those unlucky enough to still work here in a bind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop surrounding yourselves with yes-men. Listen to the folks who actually use the systems to run the day-to-day business of the company and take steps toward improvement.
