    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at CommScope full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The professionalism is definitely great, and most of the employees are easy to get along with. They have decent benefits, and plenty of space to move around to other positions within the company. It is an international company with many different facilities across the nation and globe.

    Cons

    Some individuals are more difficult to work with than others. Sometimes it is difficult to get traction on a creative idea due to the costs of pursuing it. The benefits continue to decrease year after year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be (and possibly are efforts under way) a way to connect the company's mission and vision with the actual actions that take place in the lower levels. Innovation takes time and often capital.

    Pros

    Good company striving for excellence in the market looking to break into the Fortune 500.

    Cons

    Immature governance at the highest level but stuck spending money to "keep the lights on".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some really good people. Quit catering to the old guard and let them do their jobs and quit pinching the pennies.

    Pros

    Provided the area with many great decent paying jobs.

    Good employees

    Cons

    A few bad apples, but when you employ as many people as CommScope does there will always be some.
    Really hard to get a job at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a steady rate of growth. Don't try to push the company to grow faster for shareholders.
