    Nothing Fancy

    Both the Best and Worst Place I've Worked

    Process Engineer (Former Employee)
    Rogers, CT

    ProsThe 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Management at Rogers needs to be overhauled - Leadership out of touch with markets, customers and employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Rogers, CT

    ProsRogers encourages professional development of its employees
    Rogers compensation and benefits are in line with similar positions in same industries

    ConsLeadership out of touch with markets, customers and employees
    Environment too political
    Focus is on short term not long term

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so arrogant - you're not the only game in town.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a good company to work for

    Technical Management (Current Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Look somewhere else

    Human Resources (Current Employee)
    Rogers, CT

    ProsInnovative company with lots of potential.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No thinking required...Management Knows Best

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork/life balance, comp and benefits

    ConsThe culture is great for a old and declining company

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake advice from people outside your inner circle, becasue their view of reality is just as unrealistic as yours.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    bad

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgood salary compared to what's available in the industry . The average age of the employees is young. you learn the hard way to work under pressure.

    ConsReally bad atmosphere in the work place. Lots of abusive behaviour from management staff. no advancement possibilities. New ideas are always subject to categorical refusal !

    Advice to Senior Managementstart listening ! get off your blackberries ! there is a lot of work to be done.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
