Confirmed that on 11/14 HR reserved our big meeting room in San Diego for the whole day. We'll find out soon if it's for the next round of layoffs.

Maybe the VPs are still doing their sales "projections" for settops - graphs reaching the stratosphere!! And the s/w VPs are predicting all kinds of future... Well, keeping their jobs and their buddy jobs secure till retirement.

So how are the VPs in Horsham doing? Certainly not creative stuff.. Let me guess -- doing their usual blathering and laying off technical folks?

I work with multiple project teams in Horsham and the teams are very sharp. I'm sure there's dead wood in Horsham, but the same is true everywhere.

The innovation issue issue crosses all locations...too much focus on Comcast, who doesn't pay for anything and still forces direction on too many products. ARRIS must diversify customers or die.

At one time (with Motorola), Horsham was a true innovation center - lots of new ideas. Now it has become a shell of its former self..sigh.

No energy or innovation at Horsham. Just old boys network of managers managing nobody, dragging the company down.

Folks in Taiwan will be hit yes, as Im sure others will be as they fully understand and integrate Ruckus and Brocade... Not much (or none) overlap product wise, but facility closings, product moving is always in their plans.
