Thread regarding Arris Group Inc. layoffs

If you are in your fifties, you have a target on your back at Arris

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 effect. if you are part of the old-boys group in management, you are good.

Exactly what @TPddiyq-jtit said. This company no longer cares about how well you do your job. If you can be replaced with somebody cheaper, you will be. And since those over 50 usually earn the most...you get the picture.

Oh, how true. I was one of the casualty. At 62 with over 24 years of service and excellent work ethics and achievements but I guess Arris can always replace me for a cheaper visa holder

yES Big layoffs in july 2018.True, most of the folks gone are good technical people but over 50. I was one of them after 24 years. My manager/director sold me off to keep his position and his engineer friend even though there is nothing to do. I guess I should have kissed my manager/director's butt but I won't stoop that low. Now he is a director with only 1 engineer reporting o him. Explain that.

@UbkQhvL-yxd But its supposed to be a bright and growing time, not a dark age and recession. The economy is booming! Yet Arris sinks into the abyss

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, don't forget your friends!

Keep a bright outlook, at the end of every dark age is a renaissance, every recession is followed by growth! Sometimes you need a kick in the butt to remove yourself from a toxic work environment. Anyone recently affected, keep your head up and hopes high, you will interview better!
