    Went down hill over time

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Red Deer, AB (Canada)

    Prosat first it was a real learning experience. running a store was like running a small business, you had a lot of leeway to make your own decisions and learn from them whether it was good or bad. you didnt have someone micromanaging you all the time but had support when you needed it.
    the pay scale and bonuses were decent but not spectacular.

    Consover time, there became a much more micromanage culture. a store manager could no longer make most of the decisions about his/her store. everything from hiring to scheduling to inventory was either computer controlled or required regional manager approval. even sales coaching was micromanaged from a regional level. it became a bit much.

    Advice to Senior Managementhire good people, pay them properly, and let them do the job you hired them for. dont micro manage. if they have proven themselves in the past, let them continue to succeed in their own way. every store and manager is different and trying to paint them all with the same brush or use the same techniques will not be productive.

    Chop shop

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsLearning 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working with Bell was my first great opportunity in Canada and if you have the caliber you can

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsWorking with Bell was my first great opportunity as I have totally new to Canada and I feel if you have the caliber you can move up the ladder no matter where . Bell values diversity and recognizes employee contributions.

    ConsBell Mobility is not a industry leader . They intend to mix and match what other competitors are offering . Very expensive plans and least bother about consumer side rather they focus on making shareholder happy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to be recognized as Canada's best Telecommunication company you have to think differently and more consumer concentric.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Will not promote you even if just through all the hoops

    Sales Consultant (Former Employee) Surrey, BC (Canada)

    ProsThey have a really good commission structure and a decent starting wage. They also have great benefits which include a free cell phone.

    ConsIf you don't get along with a co-worker don't count on management helping resolve the problem. It's really hard to get a promotion even if you jump through all their hoops.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHelp you talent bloom instead snuffing them out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
