An overall good place to work; I traditionally prefer small to medium size companies and Commscope is now a large co.

Pros

Interesting to work at a company that actually produces real software and hardware (unlike many "engineering" companies that only produce lots of paper). Interesting technologies especially in the area of wireless communications. The executive officers really seem to be in it for the long haul, not just to package the company for a sell-off and jump out with the proverbial golden parachute. The company seems to truly be moving toward more of a systems/solutions provider rather than just being a widget manufacturer, this should bode well for its future.

Cons

A marked increase in heavy-handed, top-down control of budgets, hiring, benefits, etc. Probably as a result of the crumby economy and the need to conserve cash, but it makes the company feel more and more like a behemoth with excessive top-down control and bureaucracy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The need for austerity and conservation of cash is understood in the current economic climate. Employees are willing to make sacrifices when the future of the company requires it, just make they are adequately rewarded when the company again does well.

    Pros

    Well run company with management decisionmaking that is best for company overall versus what is best for management. Excellent cash management.

    Cons

    Some limitation for advancement as there is a definite ceiling here. Some old school legacy management still playing the good old boy games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall you have done a great job in managing the assets of the company and making decisions for the future. A little less politics could be played and you need to put a little more emphasis on employee recognition.
