    If you have been a long time employee there it is more difficult to advance. They hire people for more money and do not get the performance based on their salary

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good benefits package that includes ESP, RSP, DC plan, Dental, Medical and a generous number of vacation days by Canadian standards.

    There are definitely a lot of good people at Bell and if your report to one of them your feedback can be valued and your work can be appreciated

    Cons

    With the jobs cut over the past few years the remaining employees have to do the jobs of 3 people so it's hard to maintain work/life balance while getting everything done.

    Team sessions with travel used to happen on a regular basis before 2007, but they're now a thing of the past

    While there are good people at Bell, there are also those who are very concerned with office politics and if something goes well they take the credit and if something doesn't work out they deflect the blame

    There are good leaders that respect employees time and work/life balance, but there are others who will call meetings/conference calls with 10 minutes notice during lunch and expect you to drop everything (and it's usually not urgent and could've easily waited until the next day). Usually these same leaders expect you to respond to their emails within 15 minutes whether you're in a meeting or working on other priorities.

    If you have a good boss and Director it doesn't mean it'll stay that way - there are usually organizational structure changes (or reorgs as they're known internally) every year or two (and sometimes more frequently).

    With some bosses you may be asked to produce reports that aren't that useful. You'll also be expected to have all numbers on hand even when people in other departments don't provide the reports you need to have those numbers.

    No raises in the last 4 years

    The bonus structure isn't always fair as not everything in it is under your direct influence

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting and hire enough people so that it's possible to get all your work done on most days in 8 hours and maybe even take a lunch

    Have team events that help employee morale.

    Cost cutting can sometimes be a necessary evil, but Bell's cost cutting has become extreme over the past few years.
