Good Work Environment

Manufacturing Floor Employee (Current Employee)
Claremont, NC

I have been working at CommScope

ProsFriendly, helpful, and knowledgeable co-workers
Excellent supervisors who provide as much information, support, and problem resolution as they can
Safe and clean work environment (within reason - it's a manufacturing facility, so some hazards and detritus from processes to be expected)
4-on/4-off 12-hr work schedule for floor employees

ConsNo sense of job security due to history of layoffs, closing of US plants, and opening of facilities in cheaper labor markets (i.e. China and India)
As in most companies today, the pervasive impression that next quarter's profits for investors, and officer's salaries/bonuses, are paramount, despite (or perhaps as a result of) assertions to the contrary

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't underestimate and undervalue your employees. Most work hard, strive to exceed standards, and take pride in the work they do and the products they create. We boast about how much quality product we expeditiously produce and berate ourselves for our errors and scrap. We're a fiercely loyal bunch, often refusing cable projects and services where CommScope products aren't used. We'd like to see some of that loyalty returned in the form of "greater good" thinking instead of strictly "greater profit" thinking.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
