    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance and flexibility. Reasonable work hours, relaxed atmosphere. Company policies are supportive of flexibility required in personal life. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Depending on your position, working at CommScope can get dull and boring. However, that may be true for many companies so not necessarily a con.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and allows you to make contacts at other companies in the industry

    Cons

    Upper management does not understand the industry. They do not have even a basic understanding of telecom beyond buzz words. Most of then can not tell you the difference between an antenna and an amplifier. They approach the industry not as innovators but a simply widget manufacturers. Was great as Andrew but since merger with Commscope there has been a constant slide down hill. Very difficult to get promoted from within for most. External candidates are favored over internal ones in regards to compensation. Andrew promoted based on skill and proven ability, Commscope promotes based on "Good ole boy" network and formal education. If you have a degree from ITT Tech or Phoenix you will be promoted more aptly than a person with 20+years of practical proven experience.

    Advice to Management

    Factor in practical skill. INNOVATE. Andrew became strong by innovating and that has been lost since Commscope merger.

    They will fire you at the drop of a hat

    Give employees better insurance at lower price. And let them buy stock through their 401k

    Pros

    Provided the area with many great decent paying jobs. Definitely the place to build a career. 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 Management

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