I worked at Bell Canada full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

New technology, some talented people to work and learn from, corporate structure, some chances to move to different departments.

Cons

Unethical sales people who become store managers and the people above them who condone this behaviour. If it helps someone above you make their bonus, I guess it's excusable to lie/cheat/steal from the Bell shareholders. The people who play it straight but get the crap locations to work/manage in are the scapegoats and performanced out.
There are a lot of incompetent people in positions (in every department of Bell) of authority/power/overpaid salaries that have no business "managing" people. It's sad how the selection process neglects the people relationship skills that should be required for these "managers" who get promoted/appointed.

Advice to Management

By upper management, I mean the people above the Director of BC etc. Apparently corruption has spread to even the Regional Managers and the Director where outright cheating (where evidence has been supplied) is condoned/overlooked because it has helped line their pockets with bonuses.
Distribution channel, time to stop promoting based on just sales results (and you should be scrutinizing the sales results). Even the new sales consultants hired can spot the obvious cheats on the reports means that this is being ignored. Have an independent department of the company who has the power to discipline these individuals or review the "discipline" by their managers.
Spend some time working on the phones with the call centre people, work with the sales people on the floor, talk to the store managers and front line people of (regardless if they are in A or D location).

    Pros

    such wonderful people here! they sure do make it a wonderful place to work. very happy with the personal relationships I have built

    Cons

    mostly everything is ok. although there are some issues, but the people more than make up for any short comings

    Advice to Management

    keep on doing what you're doing! it's a large company and sometimes there are problems with beaurocracy although it doesn't bother you every day.
