    . a Mfg company, so subject to the up & downs of it's clients and the technologies they choose to pursue.
    . Moving HQ, so it's impacting a lot of people
    . staffed very thinly, so any changes in priorities has a huge impact

    I worked at Rogers Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers, innovative company, excellent travel and entertainment policy - especially for Director and above.

    Cons

    Lots of changes, employee benefits being cut back on, totally dysfunctional Human Resources Department.

    Advice to Management

    Executive Management won't listen to advice; too busy building their own little empire. Middle management treated poorly and frequently and forever judged by single incidents.

    Has great quality and reliable products and a global customer portfolio.

    Company in transition, management is not in touch with it's workers. Moving corporate to Chandler, AZ has disrupted the focus of the team.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and his direct reports are not in touch with their team. Need to spend time living the company cultural values.

    I have been working at Rogers Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally they have good management. The benefits are competitive, as well as competitive pay. The company focuses on specialty high tech products and is generally a market leader in their chosen markets.

    Cons

    They seem to have high turnover with a lot of the managers being new. Even several of the recently hired managers have left or will leave.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find ways to retain employees and provide consistency. Also need to increase job security and loyalty, especially with the change in company headquarters.

    I have been working at Rogers Corporation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, flexible work hours, work with great people.

    Cons

    I've been with Rogers for several years and the current Rogers is one that is going through growing pains. They are trying to grow too big too fast and it's just not working. The only way executive management seems to know how to try to increase profits is at the expense of the employees by cutting jobs instead of focusing on increasing sales and creating new products. The HR and IT Depts. are horrible. This used to be a company that you would be proud working for and could picture yourself retiring from, but that is sadly not the case any longer.

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart and take time to realize the value in the employees that you have. Realize what you are doing to the lives of 70 people by moving the Corporate offices to Arizona and cruelly making them wait weeks to find out what severance packages will be available. Please do a better job the next time a decision is made like this that turns people's worlds upside down.

    Pros

    There are some really great people at Rogers Corporation. Interesting projects to work on. Not very rule oriented so you are free to do what you need to.

    Cons

    The company is becoming extremely political. It's a shame that the Executive team is ran as some kind of weird fraternity. The Human Resources and IT departments are completely dysfunctional. Finance is close behind, but recent changes show hope.

    Advice to Management

    CEO - open your eyes and look closely at your executive team. Not all is what it seems.

    Pros

    Good people trying to do the best they can. Well organized corporate headquarters in Rogers, CT.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in policies and personnel over the last year. It used to be a place to call home and have a lifelong career, but it has become just another company watching the bottom line.

    Pros

    Excellent company with even better supervisors. Employees are very helpful and always willing to help.

    Cons

    My only complaint was not finding this company many years ago. I hated leaving and tried to stay on as a work from home employee but the CIO and Director were arfaid of the concept. I dearly miss working at Rogers Corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Upper IT Management needs to listen to their employees and trust them. They know what they are doing.
