    Pros

    Very few. Can't think of anything positive to say. Big company, in theory lots of opportunities, but corporate culture prevents anyone from advancing that has true leadership skills.

    Cons

    Very low employee morale. High turnover. Militaristic corporate culture. Managers promoted on basis of years of service and not on merit.

    Advice to Management

    It's all about leadership. Promote people on basis of leadership skills, not years of service. Hiring more people from outside will improve leadership 'pool'. The Toronto Blue Jays don't just promote from within. They have a blend of home-grown talent and free agents. The 'gene pool' of leaders at BCE is so thin, many people with no real leadership skills at all are promoted into management and senior management positions. It all starts at the top. George Cope appears to be very incompetent CEO. Last year he received a leadership award. All he did was spend the company's money to create the Bell Let's Talk initiative. Meanwhile the company is falling apart and morale is incredibly low.

    I worked at BCE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team members, and a bunch of perks. On top of benefits and swag.

    Cons

    New management is showing is junior side, with a huge revamp in management, decision making has caused various employees to be let go, while higher ups get to go on trips and dine out.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that employees are what makes your business better rather than the other way around, too often did I see leaders take credit when business was doing well, and quick to point fingers when it wasn't

    I worked at BCE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big office building, free parking and minimum benefit, freer working hours. Relatively flexible locations. Big company, never have to worry about running out of funding, but that does not mean job security.

    Cons

    No room to advance, management is ignorant. Senior employees are not competent but only taking credits from others that is all they do. No job security even though it is a big company, doing a good job is not important, but please your managers are. You have to do whatever to make your managers happy even not good for the company. The senior the position, the more sever the situation like this.
    It has secretive culture that requires you to report everything you hear about other employees; other employees will do the same on you. Not a healthy environment for a professional career.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real work done, recognize people who can produce.
