If you quit, what was your exit experience? Is the two weeks notice expected? Also, if you give your two weeks notice what are the chances you'll be told not to bother returning for those two weeks? I've had a few offers where I was supposed to start... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Commscope Inc.
You see all the granted options. Mingle with 65,000 shares. How in the he-l is she worth that much. Or any one else on this half a$$ mgmt team. Since they don’t vest for 3 years, guess the place is stuck with them. Lol. Good luck to all.
In case you missed it, CommScope announced on yesterday’s earnings call that there will be another $250m saved in headcount reduction which is 1,500-,2,000 employees. These reductions are for what they are calling Core CommScope (nonHN BUs). So this... — read more
Im curious why they still have a 2 corporate aircraft and a team of pilots. Most companies have eliminated the expense. Much cheaper to just fly commercial but they think they are to good for commercial I guess.
What is the true cost of outsourcing? Jobs? Layoffs? True. But do foreign governments go and demand our companies information and intelluctual property, when a remote office operation is in a foreign country? Who is to prevent it? The... — read more
It frustrates me when I know that a large number of jobs could be saved just if it wasn't for their greed. Basically, if I get laid off, (and I’m prepared like I will), I’ll definitely blame their greed and not think that I got cut because I didn’t... — read more
during this joyous layoff season.
This is definitely not the same company I joined ten years ago. I've never been more unsatisfied with my job than I am right now. Layoffs have sucked out all the fun from work - everybody is worried and stressing all the time. It doesn't help that... — read more

I’m looking for a new job and hope to find it before I get laid off. The stress is huge. Lately, I absolutely can’t dedicate myself to work and concentrate because I’m demoralized, demotivated and very anxious. How do you deal with this unbearable... — read more
I think announcements like this are going to become our new normal. CommScope (Nasdaq: COMM) plans to permanently close a Greensboro facility before March 1, 2022, and will lay off employees beginning in... — read more
Doesn't sound good.
Executives admit they like the Ruckus name. Saying it had more brand recognition than the Commscope brand. Imagine that, they essentially bought an underwater company for ONLY it's brand recognition. Yes it is true, Commscope SHOULD change... — read more
At over spending on other companies with little or no valuation. Lost customers, poor quality offshore'd and layoff and no bonuses. Lack of direction and transparency.
For the foreseeable future.
Last year I understand they closed most of the Mexico plants for cleaning after covid infections appeared. With the virus spiking in India, I wonder how the mfg, the DC and all the sales and engineering locations. CS has relocated a lot of jobs... — read more
Instead of buying Arris just to acquire Ruckus, they could have paid Broadcom or Qualcomm to help them develop their own WiFi access point. It would have saved Commscope millions. The Ruckus Cloud is just the Ruckus SmartZone software running... — read more
This blog is pathetic. Yes, there’s legit people worried about their jobs but most are a group of rumour wielding bullies who aren’t truthful. ARRIS’ ongoing failures are the noose around CommScope’s neck. Yes, CS should NOT have acquired ARRIS, but... — read more
How's this business doing? Are those groups stable, people-wise? Corning is raking in money, so I'd assume this part of Commscope is doing OK, but it sounds like things are getting wobbly in Hickory. We buy a lot of fiber stuff.
But CLevel management will.
By laying off people ever quarter?
If so, today's 5G Nokia news will not be good for Commscope.
Meraki and HP already beat them to market. Another failed project. More layoffs coming.
I'm curious. Anyone else NOT get a good vibe after the Quarterly Meetings? I feel like we are still in a downhill slide? Is that assumption the general concensus?
People leaving all the time and I don't know that they wanted to leave just someone says they're no longer working here. More and more empty offices and cubes. At this rate, when will the doors be pad–locked and we will be told to consolidate into... — read more
If you work here, you should be preparing for possible layoffs. And no, I don't think everybody will be laid off from Commscope but I do believe everybody is in danger of being laid off. From what I've seen so far unless you're leadership you're not... — read more
You will have to forgive me since I'm a newer employee. What does that mean when they defer? Will we get a raise/bonus? Or could they rethink it in July and stuff us again?
Heard this from a reliable source. two of five buildings in the Bay Area. other offices to close completely.
So I got the package and a lot of questions. Should I refi now or wait till the fall and hope rates go lower? Also considering are there jobs out there to be had?
I'm seriously hitting a new low in my career. I just don't want to put in the extra effort anymore. They are going to offshore all of us by the end of this year. I really need to update my resume and get outta here. Plus this bathroom stinks. — read more
If they give me a severance package, I'll take it. Thing is the manager won't let me say that outside of the managers office. I heard it was not like winning the lottery, but also not bad. It's like a down payment on a car. I all for it. I'm tired... — read more
Think about this. Commscope acquired SEVERAL new buildings during their aquisitions. So, which building do you think will be first to close the doors? Which building has the fewest number of people occupees currently?
What is your last day at Commscope, or your payout day (or month)? I have a few months, and if I get a BETTER offer before that, should I take it, or wait for my payout and then join the new company?
I'm not asking about the people who were laid off but specifically about those who left on their own. If you know somebody who did, do you know if he or she regrets the decision to walk away? I'm considering leaving but I'm still too scared to commit... — read more
We like to know what's going on inside suppliers. We like stability. This is all troubling. I hope this isn't affecting the fiber materials part of CommScope (cable, closures).
I was on the fence for months now on whether I wanted to stay at Commscope or not. This is not the worst place I ever worked but it's far from the best. Still, every time I weighed p–s and cons I ended up at the same place - undecided. Until the... — read more
