I have been working at Rogers Communications full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

When I started at Rogers 8 years ago, I didn't expect to still be here, let alone build my career over time. Rogers has proved to be an organization that not only values hard work and good results, but recognizes its employees for it. Whether it's by career progression, stretch opportunities, recognition programs or great benefits, at Rogers you get as much as you are willing to give.

Cons

With several strong brands, sometimes there are competing priorities - work can be siloed when it really should be integrated. Work-life balance is ok for me...sometimes its great and other times its not but its a personal choice on how you decide to get work done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have the personal/professional development conversations with your employees often so we can continue to build a strong workforce with the best talent!

    Current Employee - Media in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Rogers Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Rogers Communications strives hard to be a world class company and has world class products. Rogers has terrific corporate facilities including a cafeteria and gym. Rogers has fair compensation, time-off policies and benefits. Corporate policies are in place to reward exceptional employees however, they do not translate into a successful program. The recognition programs are based on external community contributions and aren't relevant across the company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately Rogers Media has embraced the 'kiss-up and slap-down' kind of manager. It isn't unusual to witness a person of authority insult, steal credit, threaten (as in 'everyone is replaceable' or 'we will smoke out the terrorists' when discussing change management) and/or withhold crucial information. As a result, the majority of employees spend more energy protecting themselves than helping the company. There is an abundance of tearing others down to steal credit, passive aggressive leadership, destructive gossip, conniving politics, and abundant negativity. And there is a level of mid-management whose sole responsibility is to justify their position by creating unnecessary work via reporting, creating road-blocks and micro managing. But they know how to make their boss look good which adds to the inequity in promotions and acknowledgments. Worst of all, the stellar employees and managers who rise above the dysfunctions and perform aren't acknowledged corporately (even when the marketplace, industry and colleagues do) and they eventually quit or are even let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shared authority and group decision making does not work. Collaboration is key but there also needs to be accountability and responsibility in every role. If someone has the power to make a decision which will affect costs but has no accountability to the PNL, that is an obvious issue. If someone has the power to override another's decision but the outcome will not affect them because they have no actual responsibility for that decision, that is an obvious issue.

    Rogers should be one company- Media should not be an isolated island.
