    Cons

    Commscope is an Old company, Old means people work here are mostly very old, look any hierarchy , all leads by old people and you will barely see young minds , new ideas and new approaches to do the same job.
    Also lot of favoritism, I am from hickory location and I have seen IT management has their own favorites, they favors some folks and some of the very hardworking folks which are working their butt off not being noticed.
    Senior IT leadership is rude, they have made some of the decisions in past which made my head spin all the time. Time to replace those people.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified people, work on encouraging people. Make environment around you so that people can speak freely, employees here are afraid to bring issues on table. Because they fear that they will get fired. Pay them right. Plan your projects wisely.

    I have been working at CommScope full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good company, good work and life benefits, com loves their employees, pays are ok and 401 k and healthcare is great

    Cons

    Pay structure is not good. Your offer letter might say about annual bonus , but don't believe it. I am working from last three years and got 0 times. They find ways to cut the cost and don't kept the promise company made.
    Rather you see them wasting money on contractors and other stuff that could be adjusted towards employees pay. Senior management needs right vision but it's more like godfather situation. Whatever you say to senior management doesn't work. Talk to HR , HR has no power.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees fair and do what you say on offer letter, else they will fly.

    Give plenty opportunities to grow
    Good and fair management and leadership

    Work culture based on creating competition between internal stakeholders which lead to unsavory moments.

    Pros

    There is nothing to say here

    Cons

    Where do I start? I have never encountered such mean spirited and abusive managers. This is truly an old school company and not in a good way. They haven't changed with the times and think higher salaries make up for that. No amount of money is worth it. If you value your sanity and you have morals, do not come here.

    A previous commenter sums it up well. This company is empty and only cares about the money. There is no passion or purpose. There is no 21st century leadership. Just empty suits who talk the talk but don't walk the walk. And there is no innovation, despite what they say. This company knocks down new and innovative ideas. Management does not welcome anything progressive.

    One last word. Beware! I do not want anyone to end up stuck here like me.

    I worked at CommScope full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed my extended employment at CommScope. The environment is great. Most of the people are great.

    Cons

    CommScope is not the same company it used to be back in the early 2000's. Since they have acquired other businesses, they have bow down to those acquisitions and CommScope drastically changes for them, not the other way around. Over the years, the morale has taken a tole on everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees that want to work, have the drive, and great work ethic instead of keeping those that are "personally" on the internet/phone all the time & do not come in early or stay late.

    I worked at CommScope (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing much, training was poor.

    Cons

    I worked for an year.Encountered a person who was very intimidating that I never felt like talking to him freely,or communicating things which should be communicated.such a person should never be appointed as mentor.management doestnot know who is eligible enough to do mentoring.He used to shout ,insult before all the members of the team.Is it the way an MNC works? I lost my complete self confidence after working under that mentor

    Advice to Management

    Kindly don't appoint mentors who are bossist ,strong headed and who are not willing to listen to words of employees working under him.

    I have been working at CommScope full-time

    Pros

    remuneration is good, still powerful in the market

    Cons

    no empowering, micro managed from the top, very little to no regional empowerment

    Advice to Management

    centrally, micromanaged companies are not agile into the market space and innovation is a superficial word in CommScope. This is a lethal combination.
    Secondly CommScope is the most management heavy organization I ever worked for making decision taking slow and above all unclear such that the organization has no clear purpose and strategy in the longer term.
    Stop living from quarter to quarter.
