Pros

Purely money. As a Unionized TFR, we're paid very well compared to others in the company.

Cons

1960s Computer system does down everyday slowing the entire company down.
Poor Management and lack of planning hurts everyone including our customers.
We change product lines every 8 months which doesn't give customers any confidence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's seems like we never have a plan. When we were Rogers, we always had a plan and strived to be Cable Pioneers. Now we are Shaw and our processes are from the stone ages and have no sence of leadership.
