    I have been working at Rogers Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with are really helpful and friendly. The job itself is interesting and you are treated very well here.

    Cons

    The location is awful. To live anywhere near a city or somewhere not as expensive as connecticut you have about an hour commute to work.

    I worked at Rogers Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    None. It was a very stressful environment to work in. Don't get fooled by the smiles and politeness.

    Cons

    Managers do not recognize true talent. Instead they listen to the squeaky wheel. The louder one squeaks, the more one gets listened to , whether or not there is any merit to the issue. Some people are regarded as blue eyed wonders, who can do no wrong. Disruptive behavior was tolerated. Disrespectful behavior was tolerated. Another person who had a knack for producing beautiful slide shows was promoted over and over, even though he had little else to show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of managers who foster the above culture and then maybe you have a chance.

    I worked at Rogers Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee development, collaboration, everyone is treated as an individual. Engineering staff is strong - necessary in the industry.

    Cons

    Sometimes people are promoted when they are not ready, effects those reporting to them. Slow to move employees that are road blocks. Maybe Bruce will help change that!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your employees are saying. And if you can't do anything about it, let them know why.

    I have been working at Rogers Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Very polite.
    -Very mediocre personalities - no volatility - no outward hostility - always polite and conservative
    -If you strive for mediocre, if you are satisfied with being average and not pushing the envelope - this is the perfect fit in a perfectly mundane existance

    Cons

    --All people who are better than average leave Rogers before their 10th Anniversary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all of your Product Managers, Business Development Managers, and Regional Sales Managers who have been around a decade or more - should be asked to move on. They are holding the company back from growth. Bruce needs to continue sweeping these people OUT! They do nothing for the bottom line or morale.

    Great Place for Summer Internship

    I worked at Rogers Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a great place for summer internship. Generous pay ! Managers are very nice. They gave you enough space to work individually instead of watching you all day. Whenever you have a question, you can ask just about anyone, the co-works are very friendly and knowledgeable. Great learning opportunity for college students. The company pays a lot attention to their interns, you really learn things instead of making copies or coffee.

    Cons

    Don't have much to complain, it is all depend on the department and the manager you work for.

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunities to take on new things, good work/life balance, CEO working to change the culture in a positive way to move us into the future and keep the company growing

    Cons

    Many employees have been a Rogers a long time and their acceptance of new people, new processes, & new ideas is very limited. There is a consistent belief across the company that tenure protects employees from needing to prove their value or stretching beyond what has been their normal. There are employees who still believe people should live in the area to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It appears many decisions get made before thinking through them and changing when negative reactions are realized. Confidentiality could be better Put more emphasis at the leadership level on the importance of developing employees by demonstrating it at the top and require it from their managers. Managers behave more like individual contributors than managers of people.

    I worked at Rogers Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great Pay, Great Coworkers, Great Manager. Everyone I met here from interviewing to working here was a joy to be around, they helped me early on and always made sure to make me feel like an employee at Rogers not an Intern. My supervisor was an absolute joy she kept me filled in on whats going on and always helped if needed. The CEO Bruce is a great guy and even had breakfast with the interns which made us all feel wanted and proud to be working here. Not to mention every other memeber of the executive team were helpful when needed and also just over great people. I highly recommend Rogers to anyone looking!

    Cons

    Little hectic at times, but thats business for you nothing is certain and times are changing, they always handled their business. No real cons on my end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing and make sure to keep growing the wonderful name of Rogers!

    Was a 'nice' place to work, now turned in to a different world. Think carefully about joining.

    I have been working at Rogers Corporation

    Pros

    Generally treat their employees well, good work/life balance, global business with attendant opportunities for travel and working with other cultures. Many employees have 20+ year tenures, which says something for the environment.

    Cons

    Rogers was stuck in a time warp and now global competition is a reality. This is causing a lot of turmoil in the organization with a lot of new 'talent' at the top trying to figure out what to do, and the old timers not knowing what's hit them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some really smart people, and some not so much. Figure out who really makes a difference and lay out the plan for the future with them.
