    I have been working at Rogers Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunities to take on new things, good work/life balance, CEO working to change the culture in a positive way to move us into the future and keep the company growing

    Cons

    Many employees have been a Rogers a long time and their acceptance of new people, new processes, & new ideas is very limited. There is a consistent belief across the company that tenure protects employees from needing to prove their value or stretching beyond what has been their normal. There are employees who still believe people should live in the area to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It appears many decisions get made before thinking through them and changing when negative reactions are realized. Confidentiality could be better Put more emphasis at the leadership level on the importance of developing employees by demonstrating it at the top and require it from their managers. Managers behave more like individual contributors than managers of people.

    Was a 'nice' place to work, now turned in to a different world. Think carefully about joining.

    I have been working at Rogers Corporation

    Pros

    Generally treat their employees well, good work/life balance, global business with attendant opportunities for travel and working with other cultures. Many employees have 20+ year tenures, which says something for the environment.

    Cons

    Rogers was stuck in a time warp and now global competition is a reality. This is causing a lot of turmoil in the organization with a lot of new 'talent' at the top trying to figure out what to do, and the old timers not knowing what's hit them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some really smart people, and some not so much. Figure out who really makes a difference and lay out the plan for the future with them.

    Sink/Swim - you are left on your own to fail or succeed.

    Cons

    Managers are locked into their glory days ....back in 1980 when they were young. They are home grown and far from best in class. If you are a white boring conservative male - this is the place for you! If you are creative, enjoy life, show promise...run. The percentage of women and minorities is astoundingly low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are in Woodstock you got your job because you were somebody's buddy......not because you are smart or good. Keep up your politics you might make it to retirement.
