It was fun while it lasted!
Senior Hardware Engineer (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – March 10, 2016
Worked as a member of the Pace team, which was great! But then Pace was acquired by ARRIS and we (Boca HW Team) were let go almost immediately. ARRIS decided that it was better to keep their team (despite having almost 5 times as many people and the fact that we beat them at every project we were in competition for) instead of integrating us or removing a few people from their team.
My ratings above are for the previous Pace as a company. Under ARRIS I don't know anything other then our team was considered redundant...
It was a great run while it lasted! I learned a lot and had a great team to work with. I'm not really sure it has prepared me for any other job out there, and there really wasn't a lot of room for advancement (in the HW department at least). But overall, esp as my first job, I really did like it a lot.
Free soft drinks, decent pay, great work/home balance
Bad management, getting acquired, little room for advancement
