    I have been working at Bell Canada full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn and grow in many different areas, including exposure to the back end of the technology. Good benefits, including limited tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Very conservative and hierarchical culture. There are politics on high that make being completely honest a potential threat. Limited career growth outside of Montreal and Toronto.

    Advice to Management

    Give your people opportunity to fail and learn. That is how they will innovate.

    I worked at Bell Canada (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't that many good things other than good people

    Cons

    You only continue to work for the company if you are related to a higher up director or VP

    Advice to Management

    Why Bell always get rid of the good people and keep the lazy ones that have no experience?

    I have been working at Bell Canada full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love working here, the team I am in is great and the building ( headquarter ) is probably the best one in Quebec as it is brand new and well located. Many pros, in fact almost everything is a plus here; from the food of the cafeteria to the flexibility of the job.

    Cons

    Seems like a business where it is extremely long to go up the management path.

    Advice to Management

    They seem to be doing a great job.
