Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 20, 2018
Good for work life balance -- the workload is challenging, yet not demanding. Management is rated poorly; money is spent in the wrong places and layoffs are common. Company is very cheap and will cut many corners to save a dime.
Fairly relaxed culture, not stressful
Not spending money where needed, cutting costs, low job security
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Andover, MA – July 12, 2018
Job work/life balance poor Benefits very good Management fair. Culture is middle of road. Many people work remote so human contact limited on some days. Hardest part of the day is the 10-12 hour day and work on weekend. Most enjoyable is 13th hour.
Senior Broadband Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – July 11, 2018
Too many layers of management, many of whom have extensive tenure and/or come from large houses (IBM, Tektronix, etc.) Revenue streams are insufficiently broad in some business units. Little chance to work on cutting edge technology. Employee input not valued. Very far removed from a startup environment.
Senior IT Systems Specialist (Current Employee) – Suwanee, GA – June 5, 2018
This is the first job/company I have worked for where I actually love what I do and the people I work with and for. They aim to keep employees informed of everything. I've had so many opportunities for training in other areas to make myself more marketable and prepare me for advancement. I love that everyone is celebrated and my coworkers feel like family.
AT&T U-verse Escalated Technical Support Rep (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – May 23, 2018
while some of the people there were really nice, the stress of having to meet their ever changing demands, coupled with the often ridiculous customer demands, and a relative lack of job security and advancement opportunity, it was overall a job that i wouldn't have quit unless a better opportunity came along, but that was taken out of my hands when suddenly the branch i worked at was shut down.
Temp Position through Kelly services (Former Employee) – Horsham, PA – April 19, 2018
It wasn't the best company to work for but it paid the bills. I have had a better experience at other companies. With equal opportunity and team work environment. Management was not very approachable poor communication.

Performance Coach (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 28, 2018
In my time with Arris, I found that putting an ample amount of time in meant having a good amount of opportunities open. I had been able to advance to leadership in the company after working there for 6 years.
Gave its employees a good chance to sharpen relevant skills and get promoted
The internal hiring system for promotions was a point system, based on key words rather than a critical assessment of the candidate's ability to do the job
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – February 17, 2018
I enjoyed working with everybody at Arris. The cable industry is changing so there will be bumps along the way as some product lines end and others begin. It is a different era in the cable TV industry and people need to adjust.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – February 3, 2018
Worked for a group in north Atlanta that was bought by Antec which through a Nortel joint venture created Arris. Took about 6 months to realize that it was Nortel but worse. Offered and accepted a job in Massachusetts that after a convoluted course (and over a dozen years) ended up being in the clutches of Arris. Arris bought the company, and mined it for income from licensing, and SW. Subsequently, some employees trained folks in Tijuana, and other locales, to take over their jobs, and the group was dissolved. How should a hard working group of conscientious people feel about that? Before the Pace deal Arris at least did profit sharing, and other compensation that helped offset the exsanguination of the workforce. My understanding is that now they offer fewer financial incentives to a smaller workforce with more expected from that workforce.
It's a job
Investors and quarterly bonuses before customers and product.
