Technical Solutions Architect (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 March 2019
Bell Media is a great company to work for. The employee benefits are amazing and I love the work life balance. I get to work on cutting edge technology and that is what i love the most about my job here.
System Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 March 2019
Bottom dollar is all they care about. If you want to be a number then go work there. Absolutely no benefit to working here, dead end jobs. The 35% discount they give you is a joke considering you have to put up with their terrible customer service.
location is great only if you work downtown
Too many managers, they dont care about their employees
Creative Writer (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 3 February 2019
Bell has no consideration for their employees. They are only concerned about their bottom line, it creates high stress, low morale and a lower quality product. Who wants to work hard when you're just a number? You do just enough. The previous companies provided a far superior work environment
Declining business model means constant downsizing
Marketing (Former Employee) – Toronto – 11 January 2019
Challenging business as viewership is on a constant decline and Bell is very focussed on delivering shareholder value on a quarterly basis. With no real company growth, In order to make the numbers there is constant downsizing; there were three major series of lay-offs in 2018. Everyone is doing the job of three people, and there is almost no room for advancement. When a position becomes available, that job is eliminated and work divided up. Pay and benefits are very good, and there is decent work life balance outside of production. Zero job security.
Producer/Host (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 December 2018
In coordinating with multiple people to produce a daily sports talk show, I was able to problem solve, work under a deadline, and communicate with others to ensure we were making the best possible content, every single day.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 7 December 2018
Management were disengaged, had little understanding of what staff actually did during the day, and asked staff to perform tasks above their knowledge level, with little direction or tutelage. Bell's policy is seemingly to keep staff on rolling temporary contracts until they find someone cheaper.
The work is uncomplicated and repetitive, but that is the nature of it. The hardest part of the job was being asked to do things above my training when necessary, with no alternative except that they get done.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 August 2018
People are extremely nice. However, there is not much willingness to improve. If you are into developing your career, this is not a place to work. But if you are generally happy with the status quo, this place can be great.
Wellness Expert - CTV's "The Social" (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 August 2018
In the 3 years I have been an expert on CTV's The Social, I have had not a one complaint. The team of incredible women and men are a well oiled machine, thoughtful, professional and a dream to work with!
Have worked 3 and a half years. Good place. Get reasonable pay. Good benefits. They don't ask you to trade your outside life to work with them which is very good. They care about your improvement. You have quarterly and yearly reviews so there's definitely possibilities for advancement.
Good benefits and they care to help you improve
Big companies sometimes restructures and your job get shaved - sadly
Producer (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 6 February 2018
Loved my job and was dedicated to it with over 30 years of experience. Once you reach a certain age in my division, you are dismissed. After excellent performance appraisals, I feel I was dismissed because of my age, my salary, and the benefits I received. My direct boss "abolished" my position but I was immediately replaced within a few weeks with a younger colleague. This is happening more and more in many companies. It is all about bottom line and the employee it disregarded. It has become a challenge to find work at my age and with the specific set skills I acquired over my career.
Lifestyle, colleagues, the job
management!!! Good with the medium, but terrible at managing people.
