    Pros

    This program is by far one of the most involved and well organized rotational management programs out there. The Leadership team is dedicated to making the most out of your experience and the organization is very supportive of career growth.

    Cons

    The large bureaucratic nature of a company like Bell can sometimes mean that process is valued over form and function.

    Pros

    It all depends which team you work for. Some teams are very fast past other teams are like you are working for the govt

    Cons

    Not easy to progress in this company

    Advice to Management

    George lays out a good strategy but the company is a monolopy

    Pros

    Above average compensation if you perform, company matched pension, large company with room for advancement, the cachet of working for one of the largest companies in Canada

    Cons

    many levels of management, very policy driven, focused on profit not necessarily the best solution for customers or staff, mountains of paperwork for every little action, not enough support for sales - lack of communication between departments

    Advice to Management

    give up micromanaging your good people and free them up to do their jobs. Let sales people do what they do best - sell- as opposed to being stuck in an office doing mounds of administrative paperwork.

    Pros

    It was eye opener for me, it was also a great learning opportunity, I had the pleasure to interact with different components of the wireless ecosystem. It allowed me to peek inside and world of telecom and I became really interested in it.

    Cons

    The company in general was lacking innovation, even if I had different ideas about trying new things, the corporate structure too complex for my idea to be heard, there are always rumors and some politics even though I didn't experience them first hand. everyone there seem to have a conservative attitute

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to be open to innovation, and they need to support and encourage employees to conceive and experiment initiatives to improve productivity and efficiency.

    Pros

    the environment is clean and you got your own workstation most of the time salary with commission can be okay

    Cons

    They really don't care about giving the best customer service, they only want you to be able to make a sell out of the call. One month you can be the #1 agent regarding you sells, everybody will love you at that point. The next month you could become an average salesperson and the will start putting you the pressure until you leave. They don't care about you and they show it. That can be really bad for your health.

    Pros

    Some nice people work there.

    Cons

    Low morale, always wondering if you'll be let go. Mental health mandate is very hypocritical. It was a much better company before Bell took over.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off people that actually know how broadcast TV works.
