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

Pros

Big company, lots of opportunities, standard benefit, they pay for your training and certifications.
Lots of stuff to learn, and good for your resume.

Cons

Salary frozen for the last 5 years!

Company keep down sizing, keep cutting expenses, take away lots of benefits we used to have.
They lay off peoples whenever they need to make the number, they don't care if you are a good employee or not.

Advice to Management

Stop growing the company on the expenses of the employees. No one are loyal to Bell any more.
Your employees deserve to have a salary raise!

    I have been working at Bell Canada full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Senior executive are excellent - overall company direction is solid, well and consistently communicated internally and externally
    Salary and benefits are good (although currently slighty under market rate as no raise in >5 years)
    Overall, interesting range of work is available, although this has been diminishing in the past 2 years

    Cons

    No published strategic plan at business unit levels: $ targets - yes, comprehensive roadmap aligned up and down detailing all we need to do to achieve - no.
    Organizational restructuring within business units at the senior management level consistently happens each year, and layoffs consistently follow. Layoff decisions made by new management teams/configurations often without full context of impacts.
    Senior management is not always functioning at a senior management level - there's a fair amount of micromanagement at this company - we need direction not management from this level.

    Advice to Management

    Create and apply a comprehensive strategic plan, with prioritized programs, activities, expected results - financial AND other, aligned up and down. That would go a long way to addressing the current organizational environment challenges.
