    I have been working at Shaw Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Shaw offers good salary and benefits but its people are not that good. I read those comments here before I joined Shaw. But now I believe those who rate Shaw for 2 stars.

    Cons

    Some people are lucky enough to be in a good team and good management.

    I, like many others, are not lucky enough in a good IT team. Team leads give special treatments to people they like. I have to make a tough decision to leave the company after joining Shaw for a while. There is favoritism does exist in Shaw. I always dreamed of working for Shaw but after joining the team for a while, I started to feel stressed, not valued, not respected, and not happy. But I stayed on because I liked the salary and benefits.

    Yes, I like the salgary and benefits, but working unhappily in a team like this, I am not sure how long I can last. Shaw proudly announces to be on the list of Canada Top 100 Employers. I think Shaw means good salgary and benefits. Also, Shaw has to pay and fill out the form to be on that Top Employer list. Shaw selects only those employees that give good feedbacks to the Top Employer survey company. So please don`t be fooled by those logo ``Canada Top 100 Employers``

    There was one team member really good in what she did and was liked by everyone in the team, but she surprised the whole team and left for a company that has lower salary and benefits than Shaw. So that tells us something about this IT team.

    Actually, there aren`t that many opportunities to grow.

    Forgot to mention that, my IT team`s turn-over rate is really high. I questioned about that when I just joined, but I ignored that because I liked the salary and benefits to a point that I could not take this bad IT team any more.

    If you like the salgary and benefits and ignore your respects and happiness, this is the company to work for.

    There are times when salary and benefits are a little below Shaw`s, but you like the respect, value, and the places that you feel happy and belong to, then leave Shaw. Shaw is not the place to work. Shaw`s products are very expensive. They have to charge more to pay for all these bad employees.
