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

Pros

The environment and culture are great. Treating employees well is the foundation of this company and it shows in how people are treated.

Cons

There needs to be more thought put into what we do and why. Feel like sometimes the decisions are not done with long term impacts in mind.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Before making decisions, spend some time doing analysis on what the cost benefit is for the long term. Also help break down some of the silo's between Large groups.

    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.
