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

    Pros

    Great Company focuses on employee happiness and a perfect work life balance

    Cons

    I discussed an issue with my VP who was one step above my manager because my issue was with my manager. I was scolded and told to never go above the manager. Kind of difficult when the manager is the issue. The open door policy is not realistic. Go to HR, they support managers and above not the front line people

    Advice to Management

    Actually have an open door policy.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.Overall great company.

    Cons

    Little struggle to get leave or vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Overall Great but could be more better if Employee Performance is Recognized from time to time as that keeps motivating the employees..
