I like it here, but I think I could make more money elsewhere.

I have been working at CommScope full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Most of the people are great to work with. Only a few rotten apples. Not usually very stressful else I'd look elsewhere for more compensation.

Cons

Not much room for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote more from within. Quit hiring people in as Vice Presidents. We already have enough VPs. These people are hired after bouncing from job to job with as little as 2 years at each job. When did it become desireable to hire people who can't seem to hold a job for long?

    Former Employee - SAP Business Process Analyst in Joliet, IL

    I worked at CommScope full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    --Mature SAP system with good opportunity to see a number of standard and custom business processes with large volume
    --Strong manufacturing planning expertise

    Cons

    --Uskilled people managers in the IT department create a culture that's very closed and that does not value diversity of thought or other diversity in employees. My experience was negative in terms of culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    --Clean out your IT house and start again with professional IT folks who actually know how to be people managers as well. There are a ton of great people in the marketplace and you could build on your strengths to create a really great, supportive IT culture.
    --"The Business" treats its people well; IT folks are not valued as much - note the large attrition from IT in 2011-2012
