    Both the Best and Worst Place I've Worked

    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Rogers, CT
    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Rogers, CT

    I worked at Rogers Corporation

    Pros

    The top management of my division and my direct supervisor were the best I've encountered. Very much engaged and supportive of their people. They appreciated my contribution and rewarded it generously.

    Cons

    The most toxic corporate culture I've ever seen. The hourly peoples' union is militantly anti-management and encourages openly contemptuous treatment of anyone in a professional position. Also, many in the R&D department regard anyone involved in manufacturing as little better than a trained monkey. Upper management seems to have a flawed grasp of business principles and has pursued several disastrous acquisitions. Bob Wachob makes no secret of his distaste for the manufacturing side of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get over yourselves. You don't walk on water. There's too much arrogance in the corporate culture that needs to be toned down.

    Pros

    If you dislike accountability, if you are an expert in political manouvering, this may be your company.

    Cons

    Most of Sr management and executive leadership team never worked for any other company and have no clue on best practices (for any discipline). Some middle manager learn their trade by reading texts. Company survives through waste and missed opportunites by charging a premium for their products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shed most of dinosaurs, instill discipline, focus, and innovative spirit before it is too late.

    Pros

    Innovative company with lots of potential.

    Cons

    Old school management - who doesn't leave their office or interact with employees. HR department leadership is TERRIBLE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a real HR VP and implement some grass roots efforts to communicate to your staff. Consider moving the Connecticut location to Arizona - less union garbage and more innovation. For a company with so many great inventions, it acts really old.
