I worked at Rogers Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Management chain usually very supportive of good ideas and good employees.

Day to day environment is fast paced and challenging, but fun.

Many strong professionals to learn from and I've made many friends.

Opportunities for promotion abound at the lower/mid levels. From Specialist up to Senior Manager.

Cons

If you work on cross functional projects it's difficult to get things done- you need to invest a lot of time in building relationships with people first in order to get their support for your project goals. This goes beyond what I would consider a normal effort to persuade people to do the right thing. Because everyone is so busy if someone doesn't know you they tend not to be responsive to your requests in the beginning.

Too many decisions made by consensus. This might be fine for some operational aspects but if you're working on a project that will change the status quo this often becomes a roadblock.

Not enough information sharing across parts of the organization that have common goals (i.e. architecture/engineering and the product groups).

In some parts of the org, opportunities for promotion to Director and above levels are weak and they often hire from outside instead of promoting from within.

    - Hours suck - Regardless of your tenure, good luck getting a half decent shift with weekends off.
    - Management doesn't take into consideration the type of work you do and compensate you accordingly.
