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

    Pros

    Employee development, collaboration, everyone is treated as an individual. Engineering staff is strong - necessary in the industry.

    Cons

    Sometimes people are promoted when they are not ready, effects those reporting to them. Slow to move employees that are road blocks. Maybe Bruce will help change that!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees are saying. And if you can't do anything about it, let them know why.

    Pros

    Very strong internship program, every intern was given meaningful projects and guidance. Did a community service project as a intern group which was really nice.

    Cons

    Union environment can be difficult to become used to, but supervisors do a good job helping you adjust.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work with the internship program, it was very helpful for my future career.

    Pros

    Good pay. They seem to be one of the leader in materials. The people they hire seem to know what they're doing.

    Cons

    They're a specialty company and are hit hard by economic downturns. Most of what they make isn't interesting from an engineering perspective. Most of the blue collar workers are in a union which makes dealing with them a nightmare sometimes. They'd rather keep the status qou because it's easier then actual do more work that would lead to growth of the company. Buildings are slightly old.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on long term growth rather then yearly profit.

    Pros

    Rogers Corporation cares about its employees.
    good benifits
    good working conditions and the job is like childs play. Its that easy .
    our new safety guy Brian really cares about the employees welfare. Brian actively promotes a safe working environment.-
    good pay.
    even in a down economy we got several quarterly and annual bonuses
    Rogers corp. actively promotes continuing education as a way for advancement if one choices that route.
    The outgoing CEO Mr. Bob Wachob lead Rogers Corporation thru many sucessful years and helped open the door so we as a company can get into the LARGEST economy in the world. Bob was worth every nickel he received in his exit package.
    The new CEO Mr. Bruce Hoechner has a decade of experience in china and seems to have excellent foresight. maybe Bruce will get us to the billion dollar in sales goal.

    WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY BUT ROGERS CORPORATION HAS BEEN AWESOMELY KIND TO ME.

    Cons

    pessimism in some employees really is a mental drain. But i am always learning new ways to optimize their pessimism.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and please start actively promoting optimism and get rid of all the employees who feel they owe the company nothing but expect the world.

    Thank you.
