Topics regarding layoffs at Arris Group Inc.
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

ARRIS laying folks off in Lowell, after a sweet visit from executives
Why does Arris leadership believe that we’ll be able to survive in the changing market with zero innovation and no product diversity? All products we are offering right now are more or else replicas of each other. There is nobody with vision in this... — read more

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

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?
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

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

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.! — read more
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

The Suwanee and Horsham IT departments seem to be a big target. Curious how the Finance and Engineering teams will be effected. Guess we will see tomorrow. Good luck!
I left in 2013 and I am sorry you have to deal with all of this now – 10% is a lot but if they continue to integrate Pace at this rate, you will see more layoffs at both ARRIS and Pace very soon – anyhow, my boss was super rude, abusive and had no... — read more
