Pros: Good pay, normal working hours, employee discount on services
Cons: Can be cut throat and working hours can be extreme depending on the time of year
After MANY years I decided to leave. Bell treated me so well. I have a great pension and the pay was on par with the going rates in the market. The stoggy Telco culture still persists for the most part although in some areas not so much. Depending on where you work, you could find yourself on the bleeding edge of a changing market with brand new, exciting technology or be stuck in a really stale part of the company where they just want to make sure that the lights are kept on. Consumer/TV/Mobility are kings at Bell, everywhere else not so much.
If looking to leave and join a startup, be prepared for culture shock.
