Great company to work for.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NENovember 12, 2016
CommScope is global manufacturer with excellent people around the world. I enjoyed working with the global team. I also enjoyed resolving issues/problems. Meeting and/or exceeding our customers, both external and internal, expectations is goal of every employee.

Overall good company with good benefits
Production Planner/Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Catawba, NCOctober 27, 2016
Depending on what division you are in many areas are declining in growth therefore heavy downsizing and restructuring leaving a sense of insecurity for employees. Company is slow to upgrade manufacturing system tools for supply chain and planners.

Very autonomous management direction has been recent trend.
Too lean in some cost areas and too heavy in other areas.

Inclined to implement new plans of motion without adequately setting up, training, or supply the adequate tools for the changes. Tend to make changes before the last change was followed through creating chaos and understaffing in some areas.

Great place to gain experience and knowledge within the telecommunications manufacturing industry as Commscope is one of the worlds leaders in that market.
Pros
Overall good company depending on division or department with good benefits.
Cons
Due to the manufacturing squeeze and slower growth you can definitley feel it in this company

Going through some management and organizational changes but still a good place to work. There are plenty of talented employees that don't get opportunities to work to their full potential.

Great on paper but company transformation is not without pain
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 2, 2016
On paper it's a great company to work for. Great (6%) 401k match, good benefits, decent healthcare, fairly adoptive on new technology, looks out for its people, and has been regarded as a market leader for quite some time.

However, they recently completed an acquisition of TE's BNS business and nearly doubled in size over night. This integration, like any large integration, is proving challenging. Additionally, they are coming to terms with the fact that they're strategy in years past has missed the mark in certain areas and they are now having to scramble to catch up to the market.
Pros
401k match, benefits, inclusive culture feel, strong marketing
Cons
Lack of market execution, not agile or flexible, a lot of reporting and fire drills

Poor Cybersecurity Management
Senior Risk and Security Analyst (Current Employee) –  Hickory, NCJuly 21, 2016
This company has high turnover in this position, and poor leadership. The position of Senior Risk and Security Analyst could be great, but management does not know how to deploy and use talent, hence high turnover.
Pros
Great Company
Cons
Cybersecurity Management

Take the good with the bad

Culture Varies By Division
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  USAJune 16, 2016
The company has great potential. You have a general feeling of helping your customers is job number one. However, there are some business units who need a leadership change in order to build a culture of winning, teamwork and support. There is a tendency to alienate co-workers who don't agree with the way the business is run.

Ok Place to Work
Sales and Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Fuquay-Varina, NCMay 20, 2016
Management has other responsibilities so they aren't very involved with employees; no micromanagement. Decent pay but the hardest part of the job is coworkers. A lot of inappropriate, offensive discussions are had at work (i.e. religion, race, etc.) and nobody in leadership addresses it. The team and their close-mindedness make day-to-day work very challenging. Easy work, difficult work environment. Benefits are good but the premiums are extremely HIGH.

Good place to work
Inventory Coordinator/ Auditor (Former Employee) –  Joliet, ILApril 26, 2016
I was responsible for inventory management for domestic facility and all inter-entity transfers. This required daily audits of the cable inventory through cycle counts and floor to book evaluations. All incoming stock transfers from our India, China,and Scotland facilities were my responsibility, I also travel to do audits there as well. I learned a lot about working as an ex-patriot and other cultures customs. My co-workers were some of the best people I have worked with. The hardest part of the job was the long hours but the best part was the success I was able to enjoy.
Pros
Great benefits and pay
Cons
Long hours

Senior Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TXApril 19, 2016
Great company, one that was challenging and ever changing. Growth rate was phenomenal. Meeting and learning new systems and methods was educational and enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the fast pace. Things were changing so fast we didn't have enough people to cover the bases. The up side was that management understood this. They encouraged us and appreciated our hard work. We in turn gave 110% and made the necessary sacrifices to get the job done. This created a very positive work environment, one common goal.
Pros
Managements appreciation
Cons
long hours and less time with the family

Decent enough place to work, but pay is low and benefits are very complicated to get processed. Overall, the people are pretty good, but on any day someone can go off for no reason.
