    Pros

    Forward thinking family leadership, people are valued (great benefits), good money, good company reputation, flexible work environment.

    Cons

    I love Shaw, but it doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up. Senior leadership's macro vision changes every year or two, at the expense of staff culture and confidence.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Shaw Communications part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Made lots of money doing cold call sales
    Gotta be motivated to do more than just speak to people
    Friendly environment and very upbeat
    Best Benefits ive ever had since day one!

    Cons

    When you start making high amounts of sales they try to find ways to slow you down
    No way to move up unless you know or are friends with someone higher up.
    Even if you make the most sales on the floor you still don't have a chance of moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to slow down people making lots of sales.
    Let other people than your friends move up.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great employee discounts, can move up quickly with good performance and aptitude, good culture

    Cons

    Management not aligned on HR or hiring practices. Every manager has unique vision for Supervisor duties. Can be hard to move departments based on this. Constantly reorganizing. Underserving promotions to employees that suck up.

    Pros

    Shaw has been great to work for - great benefits, diverse work environment, fair pay, nice people, cutting-edge technology

    Cons

    A lot of their processes are convoluted and inefficient due to bad tools and programs. A lot of hand holding and micromanaging. They expect everyone to buy into the culture but it’s very demotivating with restructuring every spring.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in better tools will mitigate fallout from automated processes
