Former Employee - SAP Business Process Analyst in Joliet, IL (US)
Former Employee - SAP Business Process Analyst in Joliet, IL (US)

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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hickory, NC (US)

    I have been working at CommScope full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Manufacturing excellence, tremendous amount of talented individuals, strong product portfolio with growth potential in many areas, ethical, honest, strong culture but changing from "community" to world class, stability in leadership,

    Cons

    Policies and practices are dated in many aspects, company promotes wireless/mobile lifestyle via products but struggles to realize the importance and benefits of flexible work scheduling, losing life work balance as cost cutting and more with less has and will continue to take its toll on the workforce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though issues are not CommScope centric it would be prudent to conduct an employee survey. Not sure what could be done, but people would appreciate being heard and would welcome opportunity to dialogue on issues critical to employees
