    This job has a volatile schedule that you cannot predict at any point, with schedule bids you never know what your next schedule will be like.

    I have been working at Rogers Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, employee discounts and working for an innovative company. I've been @ Rogers over 15 years and my wife also works there for longer than myself. Many friends (from school) also work there for a long time.

    There are loyal Rogers employees who still serve the customer, the company's vision and Ted Roger's vision.

    Cons

    Rampant cronyism. If you love challenging 'status quo' thinking, look elsewhere. Corporation has been built on 'yes men' and those 'yes men' (and women) are now in positions of authority and do not like their branches to be shaken.

    Complete lack of management training. Not a meritocracy at all.

    Loyalty & tenure get you nothing. Especially at the expense of personal development to help the company get through tough times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is for Guy, you're on the right track but your directives are being misinterpreted by middle management types. Set up a hotline for employees to escalate these examples of misconduct. And that process shouldn't go through Human Resources, who is horribly bureaucratic and far too close to business units to be objective & impartial.

    Invest in your current employees, train them, nurture them. Stop the constant hiring of 'mercenaries' who come & go within 2 years time. They collect their 'unearned' MANAGER title and leave the company for greener pastures now that they can say, "Hey look! I'm a manager, that means I'm good, right?"

    I worked at Rogers Communications full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Health benefits are really great.

    Cons

    Your opinion doesn't matter in a large corporation like this. It is also very easy for incompetent people to be promoted to managerial positions, which makes it impossible to work with because all that management listens to is your position in the company. There is no leniency in work hours (9-5 is a must), there are way too many people invited to meetings that they don't need to be in, etc. These are some examples of how the old corporate business life is still at work here.

    Rogers is famous for under-paying their employees as well - peers in my industry are getting paid 10-15k more at least. The only way to change your salary is to get promoted to a different position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to newer business models (Google, etc.) that value employees' input and professional growth, flexible work hours (instead of setting up an environment of distrust by treating employees like they're punching in in the morning), and encourage a team environment (instead of management getting away with things you forbid lower employees to do).
