    Good core technology company with room to grow .

    I worked at Bell Canada full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, co-workers easy to get along with, decent pay, managers have a very easy-going style - don't really talk to you unless you are performing poorly

    Cons

    They love to outsource operations - outsourced our entire department, there are limited opportunities for advancement, they don't seem very interested in their employees, hard to get higher level management to listen to feedback

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing, pay more attention to your employees, listen to feedback, be more open to accept new ideas on how to improve the customer experience

    Pros

    There are some very bright individuals in this company that truly care about their staff and the organizational goals. the company has some very good benefits and if given the right visibility the compensation structure allows for financial growth.

    Cons

    A lot of individuals waiting for their retirement package. The company has the "old boys club"
    Some managers are being paid to watch paint dry.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead wood in the organization.

    Pros

    Work flexibility - some work from home, some hours week over week, within reason and dependent on proven ability to produce results.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring and revolving door senior management - survivors of this environment at the senior management level do not necessarily have the right skill set or motivation to stabilize, focus and grow the company.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to mgmt basics - set your priorities, align the org to achieve them, and communicate/follow up relentlessly. Realign strays as necessary, consistently.
