Has anyone who is 50+ left the industry and found success elsewhere? I know it’s a hindrance once you hit your mid 40s but finding gainful employment is important and I’m wondering if I should look outside my field. I’m trying to get my foot in the... — read more
Will those times ever come? Does anyone else feel optimism that Commscope could get back on track? This week is my last here because I'm not very optimistic, so I was looking for a new job, but still, I've been working here for a long time and... — read more
Morgan Kurk is now in the history books. Says he resigned, but prob more like a push with a kn--e in the back.
I'd like to think there's still time to undo all the mistakes and wrong moves and get this company back on track, but I think it might be time to admit that we are too far gone by now. Too much damage has been done to even entertain the idea of... — read more
I know a person who made a big mistake because she was waiting for a package instead of leaving Commsope when she had a pretty good offer. I don’t intend to make that mistake because it’s a lot easier to get a job while you still have a job. I... — read more
How's that part of CommScope doing? Making cable used to be CommScope's core business and competency. Corning and other cable competitors are going gangbusters this year. Can making cable generate enough cash to keep everything afloat?
Today is the first day of Q3 and did anyone receive any meeting invite from their manager or HR? I haven’t yet but quite stressed as rumours are circulating and CS did this after every quarter in the last 3 years.
Is everybody else working from home?
More like salary decrease!!! This year’s salary increase, was 2.5%… not even close to inflation. You basically loose money working at commscope! Time to find a better position somewhere else!!!
Does Commscope give cash or equity bonus or no bonus?
Should I apply here or stick with Amazon Netflix FB ?
Ask to reschedule. They will have to let someone else go.
Will more debt equate to more layoffs? And if the debt turns out to be high, when will the debt be paid off, so we can all breathe easy?
Some believe it will happen as early as this month. It's really becoming unbearable. Does anyone have any idea how large the next layoffs will be? I still think that it will not be big cuts, but that they will gradually cut a few people over a... — read more
Is it 9 billion? 4 billion? 5 billion? 1 billion?
In my experience the heart of the matter falls at management’s doorstep. Literally, stuff rolls downhill, and it does. How many CS managers have recently learned to leverage contractors that are a FTE of an OUTSIDE sub-contract company? Not paid... — read more
Are there layoffs planned for July 2021?
Someone told me to check out the company on the usual website Glassdoor, yada, yada. Then this website came into my radar. The posts are very telling.
Is there any connection?
People here seem to think that hard work increases their chances of getting a promotion and that could not be more wrong. This is a company with a lot of mediocre (at best) managers who see anybody who works hard and knows what they're doing as a... — read more
I can't believe that there are people in leadership positions who don't understand what a waste it is if talented employees are handed over to the competition so easily, and young people are hired in their place who don't have much enthusiasm for... — read more
I got laid off. Every body was talking about what was coming and I ignored all the 'background noise' until it was too late. I had to scramble to get re-employed. It was not easy but I did better than Commscope in the end. If I had known what... — read more
In favor of NetGear, etc? Arris to shutter doors?
A few of the posts here, indicate that a lot of older employees are being targeted on this layoffs! If a company is laying off a specific age group, may be is worth contacting the workforce commission or a lawyer.
for OUT sourcing?
I made a stupid mistake when I did not accept the offer because I was not ready to move back then. After that, I was no longer able to go beyond the interview phase, because a lot of people apply for the same position and it is very difficult to... — read more
Layoffs from month to month. This is insane. I constantly hear about new people getting laid off. How lucky is it to be a survivor here? Almost not at all. How do they expect people to be productive working under such pressure? I don't know, all... — read more
Instead of hiring H1B college students, offer internal training? The students just leave for other companies anyway, right?
Commscope laid off the entire CBRS team in Sunnyvale?
is going nowhere fast?
Have you ever worked at a company that appreciates its employees less the longer they are there? I haven't. Instead of trying as hard as they can to keep employees with the most experience and knowledge happy, they are trying their best to get rid of... — read more
After careful analysis, I think they did not care for Arris, it was just necessary to get Ruckus, who was working on CBRS. I don't know. It seems like an awful lot of money to spend just to get into that market. Charter bought up the... — read more
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
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
