    I have been working at Bell Mobility full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for a reasonably challenging job.

    Cons

    Just don't expect the systems and processes to work as they should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some type of performance or rate of increase ability over the years (e.g. yearly increases in pay). When the company continues to show $500M profit (Not GROSS) per quarter we do have enough money to flow through to employees outside of the CEO (who appears to be average $20M+ per year.

    Former Employee - Wireless Technology Specialist in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    A lot of perks for my position specifically. Such as free work phones with various high end brands and models, as well as free work phone number with unlimited messaging/voice/data/voice-mail plans. There is a 4% vacation pay for my position as well. There are a lot of team lunch/ presentation/ events that offer free food and free accessories.

    Cons

    There are some micro-management happening to contractors like me. Especially from those who recently got a full time position with some management power above the normal contractors. Overall the training was done by previous person at the same position so it is very dependent of whether that person can provide a good knowledge transfer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training could be more effective and designed in better structure for the ease of time and knowledge transfer... However, it is not the case for all positions at this company. It may be very different for different teams.

    Good and Secure but too slow for young people

    I have been working at Bell Mobility full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great starting salary, really great for the 1st work place (Pricing Team)
    - I have a good team, people are open and approachable
    - the job is very secure and predictable once you are full-time
    - 30% off all Bell services!
    - great company cell phone plans (sometimes paid in full by the company)
    - good health benefits (I think..I haven't seen much)

    Cons

    - is just so slow..being slow is probably the worst thing for me personally. Once in a while there will be a pressing dead-line - that's when I feel that my brain is alive. All the other times, feels like I am doing busy work, mostly. To be fair though, I am not crazy about the field I am in, but most people (under 30) find it too slow

    - a lot of procrastination is going on at all the levels below VP. This makes you plain lazy!

    - overall feells like this is a great place to be when you have a family and you want stable 9-5 (4..) working hours. The job is predictable, pays well, secure! Doesn't challenge me enough in my 20s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bell is a really great place and getting better every year. It is understandable that a company of this size is very slow. The size also brings stability. I am sure most people love their jobs for all the security and good pay/perks.

    It is just very hard to stay passionate and sharp in such a slow culture.. Would be great if you could create a special, experimental if you will, place/campus/floor where more creativity can be happening! Where the environment is more young people oriented with flexible working hours and all the cool things tech companies are offering. Professional Management Program was amazing in that sense. If you want young creative people to be crazy about Bell, that's something I would consider doing.

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

    Pros

    Thorough sales training provided with certificate and additional training opportunities given. Training is done in a team setting which can be fun at times. The work place was quite relaxed and a discount is given for Bell Services.

    Cons

    Sometimes the competition can be a lot for sales as people compete for commission. The store can get busy at times and we were often made to mop and sweep the store.

    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.
