Pros

Awesome benefits. There is not really any other Pro at this time.

Cons

Micromanaged, no recognition, does not care for quality, but quantity, emphasis on sales even when you are not in a sales environment

Advice to Management

Get back to basics, listen to your customers, give them a product they want with service they want. Don't say one thing and do another towards your employees.

  1. The Shaw culture was a joke, and the Shaw's only care about the Shaw's.

    Pros

    The people that I work with were genuniely good people to work with The benefits package is pretty good but could be better Satellite discount They have a 500.00 "bonus"

    Cons

    Poor communication with all levels of Management NO opportunity for career advancement Salary compensation is WELL BELOW the industry standards No work life & balance Shaw Senior Management does not listen to employee concerns Frowned upon if you can't/or didn't want to participate in events Employees are let go or fired if they want to advance in their career

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Shaw Senior Management is to STOP pretending to care when it is obvious you don't, and start listening to your 10,000+ employees as you can learn alot from them and give them a voice.


  2. Amazing opportunities for growth and development, with a lot of investment in their employees.

    Pros

    -Opportunities to invest in the company -great staff discounts -training -open door policy -quick to work on negative aspects

    Cons

    -inefficient communications at times -customers complain about long wait times when calling support

    Advice to Management

    a bit more structure in training would be great, as in -shadow installer for x days, installer shadows trainee for x days, shadow service tech for x days, service tech shadows trainee for x days. Then work closely with trainer with plenty of contact when out alone for x days.
