    Pros

    Could take bus to work or walk

    Cons

    No one gets hired full time, hours drop to 8 hours a week at times... It's sales sales sales... They use sales metric tracking system that usually is being updated during the month , so you get false info on your stats , Union does nothing but misuse time allocated for fighting for employees for personal monkey business . They rip you off of commissions ... Hierarchy of Bell is similar to the nazis running concentration camps during ww2... Mostly outsourced to other places like stream for minimum wage... Then bell has the balls to ask Canadians to fight to keep Verizon out ...

    Advice to Management

    Bring back high paying jobs to london and any town you do business in or hello Verizon

    Pros

    Strong brand and legacy in Canada

    Good cross-functional interaction to learn about the business

    Cons

    Bureaucracy
    Frequent movement in senior management
    Inefficient internal communication
    High turnover... hard to retain talent

    Advice to Management

    Senior management has very short tenure within the company, leading to the constant shifting of internal messaging and operating direction for the company.

    Pros

    - Great team and people
    - Lots of training available and new technology is regularly introduced
    - Mentors and support is available
    - Growth is available and not stifled

    Cons

    - Large company problems (multiple departments taking on similar initiatives, difficult to collaborate or push large projects through) but its not terrible, just occasionally frustrating.
    - It's difficult to take on a diverse role (multi-hat role) but again that's a large company environment

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
