Positive Outlook

I have been working at Bell Canada full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

decent pay with a great group of people. Allowed a fair bit of latitude, but that's mostly due to the coach I report into.

Cons

Bureaucracy to say the least (we are part of the largest company in Canada, afterall), other divisions are not as entrepreneurial as the Mobility division, pay could be better, but I will have to leave or get promoted to earn more here (outside of bonus compensation)

Advice to Management

look @ amending some of the compensation controls (e.g. pay a bit more for your future leaders or star performers) or they may end up leaving sooner than later. Find ways to reward for performance by finding paths of growth throughout the wider Bell (BCE) organization.
