A great company to work but with growing pains
Sr. Program Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 7, 2018
I worked at ARRIS as part of the Pace team that merged in 2016. Pace and ARRIS had very similar product lines and working cultures, but the business strategy was not followed as the customers were constantly improving their lines and processes. There was a good relationship between manager-staff and the working environment was very pleasant. But there was also a lack of vision for new products and innovation that was part of the growth pain of ARRIS. While ARRIS was acquiring new companies, other internal teams were not having the same assistance as before and the lack of strategy was visible along the years.
Although, the daily work was very good and work-life balance was manageable. The managers were reasonable. But the opportunities were only good for the ones working on the big regional offices. The small offices that were serving the customers were often forgotten by the HR as last priority.
