Topics regarding layoffs at Commscope Inc.
Commscope just announced the closing of the Greensboro NC facility, another 225 employees. If you work for Commscope in North America(except cable) in manufacturing, engineering, or R & D, you better start looking for a job now because your facility... — read more
One of the biggest problems is that Commscope has bought too many companies that do not fit together. Arris is an old company with products that don't make sense in the medium term. Ruckus is facing considerable challenges in the marketplace. Aruba... — read more
Here's what I would like to know about the company before I go out and buy the stock. Is Commscope involved in 5G , 4G, ETC, or any cellphone technologies? 0 Will people give up their modem at home, in favor of their 5G cellphones?
Like the post below I've now heard that there are plans for a major layoff event scheduled for July 17th. I haven't heard the actual percentage but apparently managers have been asked to provide names in multiple orgs. Looks like a bleed to try and... — read more
There's a lot of rumors going around regarding a massive layoff even for July. The ARRIS layoff packages are being replaced with signifigantly worse CommScope packages July 1. I've heard from a few managers that they know something is coming but... — read more
Does anyone know which business units had layoffs today? Was it just Home Networks? How many people we affected?
Any news on numbers or groups?
Anyone knows what 2020 brings?
I don't understand why they have to have so many small layoffs all the time lately instead of just getting it over with at once? What is the point? To torture us additionally for no apparent reason? Morale in the office is plummeting and its... — read more
Today we had a hit in San Diego, a long term employee, rumor said cuts will be based on seniority and salary level. Anyone heard something?
People are mentioning there were more layoffs yesterday and the day before here at Commscope - is that true? What was hit? I'm surprised we haven't heard more about it - if it really is true. — read more
More this week although not clear where. ARRIS was good for a while, but has gradually gone downhill...especially over the last year. Do more with fewer resources (in the US) while more and more jobs are send offshore for cheaper pay/less experience... — read more
About 20 former ARRIS Services employees were let go on 5/22-5/23. They got ARRIS (decent) severance as required by the acquisition agreement. Not a peep from mgmt. Not sure about other departments. Any chance we can get some more info on this? Is... — read more
I got laid off today from CommScope. One month severance. Most people who got laid off were not given much more. It was random, and very little thought went into the people who were let go, and the positions that were cut. There is no back fill. More... — read more
What sort of severance packages are people seeing when laid off from Commscope? Is there a formula used to make the calculation? I know Arris had a range from a few weeks to a full year, depending on tenure... Commscope seems to have a larger history... — read more
CommScope is one of the worst emotionally detached company to work for when it comes to lay off. Typical Use & Throw attitude. Very unprofessional staff back in Richardson based Engineering Team. Dirty internal politics kicking out good guys out from... — read more
I am sure there is a ton of people at Commscope who think like me: Commscope can improve in so many ways...
Prepare yourself, it'll be bumpy for all of us at commscope - if you thought 2013 sucked, waith a month or two
