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

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
