    I worked at Rogers Corporation full-time

    Pros

    They have wonderful technology and products. The engineering teams are consistently the best I have worked with. Highly profitable.

    Cons

    Management views employees as cogs in the wheel, if there is a cheaper cog or they simply decide they don't value you any longer...bye bye.

    Advice to Management

    You say people are your strength yet this is not the feeling of your employees, both current and former.

    I worked at Rogers Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hard worker who learns quickly and works well in both with a team and on my own and has yet to cause any problems at work of in my personal life. Plus a joy to be around

    Cons

    I find it hard to say no to coworker's who is in need of help and asks me to help them. Also i can be a little OCD with my work..

    Advice to Management

    i have yet to let down any employer who has hired me in the past and I would be a great choice for the job even if my work history does not suit the position

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    They have excellent benefits, they hire people who work well in a team environment, have a very high level of integrity in terms of following gov't regulations and conducting business ethically. It's very clean for a manufacturing plant.

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward mobility since they run lean with few levels of mgt, sometimes overloaded with responsibilities in too many different areas, can be hard to push processing improvements through the system due to intertia

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to change even in systems that have been in place for a long time.

    Pros

    Interesting Technology
    Good colleagues
    Reasonable benefits
    Good treatment of employees and reasonable benefits

    Cons

    Relatively new senior management seems less interested in actually understanding the businesses we are in, than in running the company with business "processes."
    Revamping of "company culture" posters and slogans are bogus management, but do minimal damage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to understanding the businesses and technology and less to process-based systems.
