    Pros

    A company that really cares about their employees, offers good health coverage, good benefits, running short programs to help employees with health issues like weight loss, exercise etc.

    Its a big company and the bureaucracy and the need to all (40000+ employees) to conform to one standard is sometimes too much

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the performance/goals 3rd party software (something like DirectConnect).

    Pros

    The Sales function is highly motivated and supported with learning tools themes "The CommScope Selling Methodology".

    The organization is quite big on "selling the Commscope way" and encourages the sales teams to keep the focus on being the customers' source of trusted advisory.

    Cons

    Not many cons but for one who is intent on rapid growth opportunities, there are not too many exposures or encouragements within the system to achieve rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Implement career enhancement as an elaborate structure within the team management strategies

    The company has a strong vision on being a leader in fiber optics technology, microwave, and possibly DAS (cellular distributed antenna systems). They need to watch out for small cell competition in the market.
