Pros

there are lots of really experienced people working there, and willing to share their knowledge with you when they have time. Also people are friendly and weekly meeting really helpful for people in your team knowing what you are doing.

Cons

Always needed to work over time, people is competing with each other in terms of hard working. Underpay, and benefit not so great.

Advice to Management

take advices from public and show appreciation when great work is done. Not so good for paying little money with huge expectation.

    Pros

    opportunites to move around
    learning opportunities

    Cons

    Everyone now works remotely making it difficult to bounce ideas off of co-workers and work on resolving issues fact to face. If one wants to talk to someone else, must book an appointment in their outlook calandar and they are always "busy". . People are stressed and overworked thanks to downsizing. They have developed a culture of blaming someone else when something goes wrong. Some managers have really big egos. Not a lot of support for anyone on a learning curve.

    Used to work at Bell years ago, but the culture has changed - people are mean now.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for scapegoats to blame when things go wrong. If you hire a contractor don't expect them to hit the pavement running. Contractors aren't going to know your IT systems inside out and all the quirky business rules that went into deveolping them unless they worked on developing those systems before. If you have special "rules of engagement" such as "cannot take any time off" or I must be informed of events on an hourly basis, tell that to the contractor, don't assume they will know or figure it out. Maybe the company should look at hiring people for the long haul instead of picking up contractors on 3 month terms. Can't accomplish much with terms like that.


  2. "Just looking"

    Pros

    Leaders in Information Security and Service Oriented Infrastructure.

    Cons

    Big Blue Elephant takes a while to move.

    Advice to Management

    Break agreements on property management to control your operations. And move your business out of your operational infrastructure.. it'll improve information security vulnerabilities and remove the overwhelming power consumption.
