ARRIS laying folks off in Lowell, after a sweet visit from executives
Topics regarding layoffs at Arris Group Inc.

The strange thing about the layoffs is the VPs and above save each other , and they layoff the foot soldiers. There must be more directors and higher in Horsham then engineers I guess. Same thing in Suwanee . Lots of directors and senior directors ... read more

There were mentions that something big would happen at Arris this week, any updates on that? I'm not sure how I'd take it so soon after the last round, but I still think it's better to know ahead than just be suddenly hit with it over the head. I... read more
How is the severance package? If layoffs were to happen this is a good time rather than during a recession, when its hard to find a job This was asked in another thread but there were no answers, so I'm hoping pushing it to the top will help to get... read more
Yes lay offs have started in USA video business unit and are expected to hit Europe shortly. Followed by lay offs in the services decision. Arris is trying to increase its share price by firing engineers again. Sadly they are already cut to the bone... read more
Anyone over 50, not necessarily close to retirement or retirement age, has got cross-hairs on their back for Arris HR. If you are a technical person and >=50, then make sure your resume is ready - what you have done so far or doing now has zero... read more
Please somebody tell me it's finally done?
Even if there is no Layoff this year, you can feel them coming. It is tough for some people on the border of retirement age, but keep your resumes updated and always stay it touch with contacts. The best and easiest hires are from employee referrals... read more
So how are the VPs in Horsham doing? Certainly not creative stuff.. Let me guess -- doing their usual blathering and laying off technical folks?
it is ironical that Arris stocks have dropped 15% over the year while the stock market booms. All the blame lies on the individual contributors and not the illustrious old-boys network. We were told that the most important thing is technical... read more
So the 3Q results are "amazing" and so the managers will keep their jobs till retirement... Yay!!
On the eve of the holiday, wish management (every level) at Arris and their families a Thanksgiving just as good as it will be for me and family: from a distraught sad parent formerly at Arris.
I am hearing rumors that the latest bad quarterly results are all but certain to bring on more layoffs... Not sure if somebody leaked something, or people are just going by what has happened in these situations before... Any additional info would be... read more
Arris Horsham has laid off some upper management VP's and Directors. The absence of these positions will not make much of an impact on the facility or even be noticed. The positions were basically old school buddies from the General Instrument days... read more
Layoffs are coming, Expect the announcement this week. Pace acquisition complete, they have made their selections and getting ready to make us 'lean and clean'. Hopefully Obama's economy is ready for the influx of available engineers. Say goodbye to... read more
My wife talked to the wife of a current Arris employee and her husband said there were more layoffs last week. Any more information?
The synergy effect showed its face today in Sweden. After tremendous long time of knowing/telling nothing the management announced that 10% of Arris Sweden will be fired. Thank you synergy effect.!
Here is the link for the official PACE thread on this site: &pace
The site is about to go extinct, we will be phased out within 36 months.
How realistic is this, do you think it will happen, and if yes, when this would be happening? There are many rumors on this topic, and many PACE folks are simply worried about prospects, so, I can tell you that the concerns are real and people are... read more
Do you have the info, are they changing anything?
Like many I’m soon to be heading on to pastures new, even if I survive the first culling of the working people in the company, the message is loud and clear walk away for this toxic company. I think the following song, sums up the general feeling…... read more
Yes, there were a lot of us let go in 2004 by a "VP" who said we didn't have the qualifications needed for the job. What a joke! We were some of the first to work and help build the start up and we BUILT the teams and the company and the job... read more
Test automation teams in Beaverton and Kirkland were wiped out completely. They invested in expensive hardware years ago but never devoted enough resources to make it effective. There have been situations more times than I can count where... read more
So much stress, so much politics. I think I will leave on my own. Sometimes it's hard to calm my thoughts.
Rough numbers: 530 in US 100 in Isreal 55 in Argentina For a total of 685. I believe (guessing) UK offices will majority of this remaining number.
