Pros: work at home, salary and benefits
Cons: everything else
Generally Bell is an OK place to work. It is a bit of dog eat dog. There are people in positions that were promoted because
a)they've been around a long time and
b)their buddy was doing the hiring.
It doesn't mean they are the best person for the job. It is a large company and easy to get lost in the shuffle.
If you don't work in Eastern Canada, you pretty much don't exist. Poor communication across all departments and marginal execution on projects, however that is fairly typical in large companies.
The executive management keep talking about transforming the business from a traditional telco, yet keep reverting back to traditional products to promote to large customers. Not the best way to move ahead. The direction of Bell is unclear to me.
Layoffs are fairly constant, so if you don't have the stomach for that kind of thing, this is not the place for you.
I have been fortunate to receive funding to write exams, attend training and have access to a lab. All of that will contribute to my next position in another company.
The skill level of my peers for the position they are in is below par. They've been at Bell a long time, have little knowledge and tend to stick with each other. I have a low opinion of them. Teamwork/sharing information doesn't compute; keeping their job does.
