    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn and get training. Casual environment. Good learning for a developer. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    If you're not a white male, this may not be the place for you. I've seen and heard many stories of quite a few people leaving because they feel ostracized by senior managers because of their race or gender. Many of us stay because we are not faced with it ourselves, like their coworkers, and are quiet, but some have been treated so badly sometimes HR has to step in because the behaviors could get Bell sued if they were willing to pursue it. It's unfair but there's nothing other employees can do to help them.

    Management hasn't changed anything to fix in the past few years, so a lot of good people just keep leaving for other companies and they just hire more interns, contractors, and young inexperienced new graduates to do the work of the experienced people who left.

    Advice to new hires: Don't expect to be respected or valued much for what you do or your work experience. It's about how well you socialize with your manager and his friends at work and your pay is very dependent on that. It's a very political environment and if you do not conform or play into the game your career will suffer. This is not a merit based environment.

    Most people just come here for training, benefits and the experience on the resume since it's a good company to have references for then leave after a few years because of their frustration with management. Don't expect accommodations to transfer positions so ask a lot of questions and ask to meet the managers before you join a team.

    Advice to Management

    They haven't listened to anything anyone else has said so this box may not be useful.
