An decent place to learn the ropes

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Aside their penchant for assigning job titles that unique and not necessarily industry standard, they really get away with paying you less than you're true value. Otherwise, it's a great environment that maybe a little top heavy in management wise and not all leaders are equal or for that matter great.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

They like to empower you to speak your mind, but don't necessarily welcome negative feedback even in constructive format.

Great work life balance

The 20 yrs that I worked there were very good. From the supervsors to the field techs. It was a good work environment, with lots of chance for making a well paid career.

Pros

Work atmosphere was good

A Good Job In Its' Time

Was a great place to make a living as an installer before they changed to a self install model. Work culture was great but competitiveness, stress, and a lack of work/life balance was the norm. Excellent pay and benefits if you don't mind doing the work.

Shaw is really decent

If you do your job well, you excel. Only people I have heard having problems are the people that didn't work very hard. They have the best benefits I have ever seen. The pay is great. Leadership really needs to be worked on. Lower on the scale, the more of a yes puppet they are.

Not worth the stress

From a technicians point of view this used to be a good company to work for unfortunately the company regularly culls employees to appease shareholders with flagrant disregard for its workers. Management on this side shows levels of incompetence and patronage more themselves than anything else

Pros

Salary good benefits and profit sharing

Cons

Fake team& visions&values, corporate greed at the expense of its workers, gross mismanagement clinging to ancient and outdated technologies

Fumbling topheavy leadership

My time at Shaw was a maze of department shuffles with each new manager/regional manager/supervisor having a vision that was not congruent with the last. Sometimes long term employees are advanced but lack the skills for the job. Politics! Demand to get job done faster...while having frequent mandatory meetings to discuss progress. Family oriented with twice yearly gatherings for family events that were enjoyable for all. Minimal increases and few perks. Some benefits. I left to go to Telus for the better wages, and pension plan that only a union can guarantee. Having said that, there are many days I regret my decision.

Pros

free shirts + employee social events

Cons

no pension plan
