    I worked at Bell Mobility full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bell Mobility is a stable organization with many options to grow and advance.

    Cons

    Connects Wireless Franchise only.

    Constant turnover with untrained staff. Complete disregard and disrespect for current employees and long term staff. Minimal pay and no chance for a real raise. The only people making money in this organization is the owner and his friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connects Wireless Franchise only.

    Let go of some power to your staff.
    Respect your staff.
    Pay your staff.
    Listen to your staff.

    Pros

    Bell values and promotes leading project methodologies. Cross functional team involvement is abundant and encouraged.

    Cons

    Due to very many restructuring, employees are some what scared and frustrated of ongoing change. Perks are below average and promotions are rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should encourage training, mentoring and motivating new employees.

    Pros

    Cellphone and benefits. If You Are Not Working under the manager in the product zone team you can enjoy working in bell.

    Cons

    Managers can abuse the employees and NOTHING is done by hr nor upper management. You can make complaints etc but nothing was done to help the employees in the product zone team. An investigation was done for the work environment and still nothing was given to the team of the results or updates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your management! !! The unfairness the nepotism....check out the manager if product zone and the team she handles! Absolute garbage! NEVER WORKED UNDER THIS TYPE OF CONDITION. No one did anything to stop her behaviour and stop the ill treatment by her to certain employees! Her director knew and he just had nothing to say! Really poor management skills!!!

    I worked at Bell Mobility part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent commission if you work in a busy location. I had the opportunity to work with some great people over the years.

    Cons

    No appreciation for hard work and dedication. Management only cares about the numbers, not about client satisfaction or loyalty. A lot of shady people who work there lie to customers to make the numbers look good on paper/maximize on commission without regard for the best interest of the customer.

    Former Employee - Creative Associate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Bell Mobility as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a creative, and a student I did learn some great on the job skills. It's kinda hard for me to judge the PMP. I did learn some important things for myself that helped me out later (technical skills), however if you can get them at a paid job I HIGHLY recommend doing the latter.

    These are not skills exclusive to PMP. AT ALL.

    Cons

    Side work seems pretty much like the busy work they didn't want their actual employees to do. Expect to work long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least pay for gas, food, something!

    Pros

    Learning and development opportunities are plenty such as online / e-learning. There is lot of room to grow provided one get in to the right group/team.

    Cons

    Organization has gone through a series of restructuring which has caused unnecessary pressure on new and existing employees. Due to this ongoing restructuring there's a lot of power struggle and opportunist movements within the management which makes things quite ugly and painful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people first. Bringing a change is good thing but it shouldn't be only at the cost of layoffs.

    I have been working at Bell Mobility

    Pros

    The company is aggressively looking to regain lost market space and competing with the new players. So you'd be in the middle of a very fast paced, high stress environment. In the trenches. Positive for somebody looking to learn the business.

    Cons

    It's all about meeting targets. Employees are just pawns. No respect or care for the individuals. Internal politics and back-stabbing is the norm. Executives are more concerned with their fat bonuses than anything else. Don't expect to find a positive working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some people management courses.

    I worked at Bell Mobility

    Pros

    If you work in the Mississauga campus then you don't need to pay for parking.

    Cons

    Management Salaries are lower than competitors and there are no salary increases without a promotion.
    The companies drive to satisfy the financial analysts comes at the cost of employees bonuses and salaries.
    Employees are told to exceed objectives for several years to earn a promotion. Common approach is to determine the desire of the employee and use that to motivate the employee with promises that are never fulfilled.
    Due to the wide abuse of favouritism the company is managed by inexperienced teams, which leads to conflicts and chaotic project management. This causes a low degree of integrity among working teams and leaders as they are motivated to meet their objectives.
    Friendship is the best way to be promoted at Bell Mobility.
    Graduate degrees are not recognized as a consideration for management advancement.
    Dislike the way the company treats clients whether they are new or existing and many employees complain about this but the companies leaders are only focused on cost cutting and stock dividends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bell Mobility needs a Human Resources group that has authority. There are so many abuses by managers and executives that the talented employees have all resigned. Bell Mobility is ripe to be sued by an employee.

    This could have been a great place to work for if not for the train wreck of corporate structuring.

    Pros

    Only reason I would suggest working for Bell Mobility is to have a free cell phone plan.

    Cons

    Where to begin....a company so large in operations and size yet so narrow in corporate structure. Morale is largely dependent on quality of your manager(s) - of which there are many questionable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to improve the quality of management - soft skills traning.
