    Pros

    Solid Telco , System, embedded , connectivity skill sets . Some of the engineers are top notch, world class . rare to find such talent
    Solid marquee customers

    Cons

    Aricent has just beginning to realize that they have to change and adapt fast to a changing world.
    Most of the company are steeped up in the old world. Todays keywords are cloud, mobile, convergence , security and they have to invest.
    If we dont see Aricent investing in some of the modern technologies and concepts, we will soon be irrelevant.
    We need more clients, not just in the wired and wilreless world.
    We need great sales guys who think out of the box, and invest in building client relationships and growing accounts
    marketing is poor or non existent.
    no brand visibility outside Aricent campus
    I miss the old Aricent /Hughes , where we were highly respected and much sought after

    Advice to Management

    sr management is pathetic and UNINSPIRING. still steeped up in the old dial up days.
    look around ... see the changes and ask yourself what are you doing about it

    Mr CEO, please look around and see if you have inspiring leaders or just order takers ?
    I have been in this company for around 8 years, and dont even have a clue what some of the senior management does

    I have been working at Aricent full-time

    Pros

    Aricent is one of the most innovative companies on the planet. The software engineers at Aricent are engaged, driven and rocket-scientist-smart. At a recent client meeting, the senior-most client stood up and said he had not seen this level of innovation in their three decades of experience.

    Cons

    Globally dispersed company. But this is a "pro" since the diversity of Aricent is extremely impressive.

    Pros

    Company offers great opportunities in terms of carrier growth. Some really nice people to work with. If you prove your worth, you will get all that you need to grow.

    Cons

    Salaries are not that great. Benefits are also not very attractive.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the way you guys understand employees concerns and always try to help them. But if you can work on good compensations , Aricent would be the best place to work for.

    Technical Training

    Cons

    Internal Tools could use some improvement. Too many approvals.

    Advice to Management

    Increase Communication from Leadership

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

    Pros

    Wide range of opportunities across evolving technologies.

    Cons

    Difficult culture to navigate, decisions made contrary to vision and strategy - which are not well communicated at times. Some compensation decisions made without regard to impact on individuals, effectively providing a pay cut without notice and no future plan to correct.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better vision and strategy direction that translates to the different divisions, groups, teams and at an individual level. Too many decisions are made that are not clearly aligned to our understanding of the vision and strategy - although they may have changed and not communicated.
