Pros

Management chain usually very supportive of good ideas and good employees.

Day to day environment is fast paced and challenging, but fun.

Many strong professionals to learn from and I've made many friends.

Opportunities for promotion abound at the lower/mid levels. From Specialist up to Senior Manager.

Cons

If you work on cross functional projects it's difficult to get things done- you need to invest a lot of time in building relationships with people first in order to get their support for your project goals. This goes beyond what I would consider a normal effort to persuade people to do the right thing. Because everyone is so busy if someone doesn't know you they tend not to be responsive to your requests in the beginning.

Too many decisions made by consensus. This might be fine for some operational aspects but if you're working on a project that will change the status quo this often becomes a roadblock.

Not enough information sharing across parts of the organization that have common goals (i.e. architecture/engineering and the product groups).

In some parts of the org, opportunities for promotion to Director and above levels are weak and they often hire from outside instead of promoting from within.

    Pros

    Leader in Canadian telecommunications. Very innovative in the past.

    Cons

    Since the founder (Ted Rogers) passed away, it is sad to see how short term the corporate strategy has become. Senior management seems to be lurching from one idea to the next in an effort to maintain the growth. This has resulted in huge swings in employee hirings & layoffs, massive outsourcing, and customer churn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop relying so much on outsourcing and American managers. If you can't keep your own employees loyal to your product, why should any of your customers stick around?

    I worked at Rogers Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In the past 5 years working with Rogers I have loved all the people I work with. The culture at Rogers is very much alive and everyone is treated like family. Under the last 2 years I have loved the direction that Rogers Retail is heading and look forward to the result of this massive transformation soon.

    Cons

    Competitively the salary range of Rogers is below average. When taking Rogers' quarterly revenues into consideration, the tight budgeting in all areas of business does not make sense. With such tight control of spending, there is no room for career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To maintain market share in the industry, you must take care of your employees before your customers. Maintaining high morale internally is just as important as keeping your customers satisfied. Give them a budget for team building activities such as a Christmas party!
