    Review 2014

    Digital Imaging (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsThey have very decent benefits, a nice well-kept work environment with adequate supplementary extras such as a cafeteria and gym.

    ConsThe morale now is very low with seemingly non-stop lay-offs affecting all levels of employment and seniority. The work ethic currently is quite lacklustre and there is little room for advancement in the publishing dept.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove away from the same old tired stoogy work practices and attempt to distinguish yourselves from other similar companies. Create more substance rather than more glitzy fluff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Great until Management Changes

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCoworkers are great, benefits are good.

    ConsManagement tries to manage a team when they have no experience themselves. Unrealistic targets. Barely any training to new employees. With Minimum wage increase those working more than a year are now making the same amount as the new hires. No incentive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on your Front-line staff and you will have happy customers and employees all round. Train your upper management, we are only as good as our upper management team.

    Employee benefits

    ConsCurrent state of changes not clear and taking too long creating alot of uncertainity

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet over with the change process and start building again

    Chaotic ITS with out of touch leaders.

    Director (Current Employee) Brampton, ON (Canada)

    ProsSalary and benefits are good. Location is good. Working tools average. Co-workers great.

    ConsMost managers are not technical enough to manage technology. Too many generalists. Two major IT reorganizations in a year and everyone is confused. Seems the worst executives get promoted, best leaders are let go. Unrealistic delivery expectations due to lack of leader domain expertise. Great place for consultants to milk the cash cow. Former Rogers culture is dead. This company is imploding. Massive waste of money on two major development initiatives has not delivered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClear out ITS import executives. Bring back some people who have left due to imports. Get back to basics. Dont accept generalists in ITS leadership positions.

    Rogers communications is not all it's cracked up to be!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros50% discount on products & services. Locations are pretty easy to get to by car or public transit. Lots of employees to make friends with.

    ConsMediocre pay and over worked. Too much expectations put on employees and not management. Poor Sr management; promotions given to those who are "yes men" rather than forward thinkers and development experts. The list of cons far outweighs the pros. This company has been a horrible experience for anyone who has been there since the days when Ted Rogers ran the show!

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be great if you stopped laying off the skilled and intelligent employees; keeping the small minded "followers". Companies like Rogers need big thinkers and self starters not a bunch of puppets on strings!

    Dealership store, it was okay

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a lot of freedom on how you want to approach your customers. Flexible scheduling.

    ConsSince it is a dealership store, there is limited growth opportunities. You can become a store manager, but thats about it. Chances are slimmer now because they're downsizing. Commission was good at first, but as time goes, they changed commission structures or limited the amount of money you can earn by indirectly lowerly the profit margin you can earn on each product and plan. No recognitions whatsoever, even if you re top sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI advise Rogers to buy back more dealerships because there is no vision in dealership and too many miscommunications between dealers and corporate.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
