Thought was okay but.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Forest, VASeptember 11, 2017
Get's worse every year. people get away with doing nothing and getting paid 3x what someone who does all the work. No communication. They will never give you a raise no matter how much work you do and can do. Most the the people on the "floor" are nice people tho. management only cares about their own booty's.
Pros
none
Cons
health insurance suck. raises suck.

Weldor/Robot Operator (Former Employee) –  Euless, TXAugust 23, 2017
some poor communication but there was always something for someone to tell us. some of the things they had to say wouldn't be available or apply to myself so it seemed strange to me for me to have to bear the speech too.
Pros
decent break times
Cons
had to use break time for personal upkeep of tools and apparrel.

Material formulations and inventory management (Former Employee) –  Elm City, NCJuly 24, 2017
Job functions we already set when Commscope took ownership. Same local management was left in place and job status never changed. We maintained all contracts and did what ever it took to keep deliveries on time.

Good Old Boy Network
Supply Chain Manager Inside Plant Products (Current Employee) –  Greensboro, NCJuly 10, 2017
If you were in any office type role with any type of management responsibility and CommScope acquired your company, then you were treated as second class citizen for the most part. I knew people who where acquired 5 years ago and they still felt the same way. I was better off being brought into CommScope as an outside hire than as an acquired employee.
Pros
discount gym membership on site
Cons
management wants to do things on the back of the napkin which you can't do as a $6 billion company

Great place to work with plenty of potential for job advancement and they take care of their employees, however they often go through layoffs so you will be lucky to stay with them long term.

Great place to start a career
Corporate Communications (Former Employee) –  Hickory, NCJanuary 18, 2017
CommScope is a great place to start a career. Not only is the compensation great for a recent college graduate, but there are always opportunities to advance, and since the company is currently made up mainly of people nearing retirement, there is a great need for young people. The company also has a reputation of being a place where employees stay for a long time and has little turnover, which is positive and encouraging. The only downside is that not all CommScope locations house every department. For example, if you are in marketing, you would not have any options for employment at the headquarters in Hickory because the marketing team is located in Shakopee, MN. In many cases, you might work with people who live and work at offices in different states and time zones, so communication can be challenging. However, if you are in accounting, finance, HR, or IT, you won't have to worry about it. Overall I would recommend this company.
Pros
Great pay, good hours, strong company to have on resume
Cons
Lack of young people, hard to make changes
