    Pros

    being a large organization results in lots of new opportunities to move vertical. Great for starting off a career and getting a variety of different experiences. Some smaller teams are good and fun to work with.

    Cons

    The industry as a whole is stagnant and monopolistic--thus marketing is NOT top notch. large complex matrix organization -- so anything takes a lot of time to implement and get consensus.


  3. A very typical telecom company

    Pros

    Slightly above market salary and good benefits (bonuses, RRSP, insurance and employee Internet/cell program). Nice building (Ile des Soeurs) specially during the summer. Working hours are not bad and a work/personal balance can be achieved. Work atmosphere within teams is positive and, in general, the feeling is that teammates want to help each other.

    Cons

    Actual job can be frustrating with lots of emails going back and forth. There are excel spreadsheets for everything and most activities are not very efficient. Lots of different systems for different tasks. It is very easy to make mistakes since work can be very complicated (mostly because of processes and systems). Company leaves place for slackers to thrive as it is really hard to tell who is pulling their share of the workload and who is just simulating.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in better systems and streamline processes.
