    Pros

    Bell Aliant is a community minded organization. What it gives back to all communities in the Atlantic Region is phenominal. For example, we just completed Backpacks for Kids and employees and families and associates filled over 3500 backpacks. Bell Aliant has a major presence in the community with their infamous "Lost Kids" program which helps reunite families that get separated at our many community events such as Buskers. Bell Aliant has lots of opportunity to "move around" in the business. You can job shadow almost any area you may be interested in working. The salaries are very comparable and in many cases much better than what is in the market place. Bell Aliant is making great strides in listening to the customer and constantly improving on its services and offerings.

    Cons

    The only downside I can speak to is the fact the environment is changing so quickly, it is difficult to keep up with everything that is available to our customers.

    Advice to Management

    keep simplying our offerings

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The chance to work with professional and knowledgeable people in a workplace environment which fosters communication. Most times, the ability to get an answer from another team, group, or division is receptive and responsive in that most understand that we are all working for the same company. The technology and infrastructure that you get to work with and have an impact on makes the work more enjoyable and to be able to work towards a goal that (hopefully) realizes gives each team motivation to show up every day without turning it into a mindless grind.

    Cons

    The vastness of the company makes it difficult sometimes to introduce change in new technology, methodology, and to realize the transition of new products and services. Bureacracy, regulations, and fierce competition can cause frustrations sometimes, but they are the nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Over the last few years, there has been too much bureacratic and political maneouvering at the higher echelons. A clear direction and providing necessary tools for research and development is necessary to move forward, not backwards.
