    I worked at Shaw Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great offices and some fantastic locations. Many fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization, if you're part of "the group" meaning hanging together after work, drinks etc you may be OK. Unqualified people moved into many roles based on relationships with leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Really take a look at your management team, who they "bring with them" and the roles. Movement for the sake of movement typically results in the same outcomes. $59M in salary to the top 5 is unsustainable with the churn, keep raising the rates and watch this increase. More cuts in labour is not the solution.
