Pros

ARRIS MTA and CMTS groups are strong and the products are solid. Technical and managerial leadership in these groups are industry leaders.

Cons

Some of the other groups within ARRIS are challenged by trying to integrate technologies and cultures as a result of acquisitions. These groups would benefit from leadership with vision for the product lines.

    Pros

    Bigband Networks had a lot of potential, its product line was industry leading and the company was initially employee oriented. Made for a good place to work.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions led to the company going downhill. It went from a employee friendly company to a penny pinching one.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give, company was bought out at the end of 2011.
