Started out awesome, then micromanaged to the point you'll want to just quit.

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Shaw Communications

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
