    I have been working at Rogers Corporation full-time for 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.

    I worked at Rogers Corporation

    Pros

    Good bonus program. That's about the only pro.

    Cons

    Rogers Corp has a very strong good old boys (and good old girls) network. If you in either one, you will move up. If not, watch out.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism shown to the good old boys (or girls) network.

    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.

    I have been working at Rogers Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Knowledge retained through longer term employees Work with some very smart people who are dedicated to what they are doing Benefit offerings are very generous Beginning to obtain more targeted hires of some strategic managers in the past year + Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Consistency is a big problem with policy enforcement and program distribution. Subject-matter experts/managers/leaders often have others outside their area of expertise weigh in on their approaches to running their business. Not all recent new employees and managers are not used to their level of knowledge. Need to employer the people here. Not nibble with decision making. Employees feel they need to have their... opinion heard which weighs down getting decisions made. Company culture at the corporate level tends to be negative. Senior staff need to lead better to help the staff under them understand where the departments going and what is most important and what the priorities are. Internal systems very outdated and not competitive, but Rogers is moving in the right direction. Employee growth & development at Corporate are not priorities for the majority.

    Advice to Management

    Need stronger leadership to help set priorities and communicate clearly what remains as a priority.

    I worked at Rogers Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None. It was a very stressful environment to work in. Don't get fooled by the smiles and politeness.

    Cons

    Managers do not recognize true talent. Instead they listen to the squeaky wheel. The louder one squeaks, the more one gets listened to , whether or not there is any merit to the issue. Some people are regarded as blue eyed wonders, who can do no wrong. Disruptive behavior was tolerated. Disrespectful behavior was tolerated. Another person who had a knack for producing beautiful slide shows was promoted over and over..., even though he had little else to show.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of managers who foster the above culture and then maybe you have a chance.

    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.
