I have been working at Shaw Communications full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Big company, great people, strong hiring practices.

Cons

Obsessed with quarterly results, and cutting spending at all costs. The company is driving itself into the ground by focusing purely on short term, and attempting to shore up these shortcomings by micromanaging their employees in ridiculous ways.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to market demands, give customers equipment, and start creating some real long-term plans.
