Snob culture/Insecure leaders/unionized

Bell is indeed a reputable company, but if you have strong values you will find it sad working at Bell despite some good benefits (3 weeks vacations, RRSP, pension contribution). Bell is half unionized, therefore you will find it creates a lot of divisions. HR department is quiet snob, as they feel they are better than everyone else. And they feel this way because Bell culture makes it hard for their employees to get a promotion, so when they do get a management position its such a big deal. Its human nature to cherish what took so long to achieve. Now when they get higher it create insecure leaders, constantly in fear of losing their spot under the sun. This means they feel threatened by new talented employees. They constantly remind you how long it took them to get where they are, and will deslike if you are more ambitious. Save your energy and pick a forward thinking company instead. Also salaries are non negociable..

Good place to start acquiring skills

Good place with some good people. Great place to learn. Room for advancement is limited. The company merges jobs and cuts departments which result in more workload for the remaining workforce.

Pros

good benefits

Cons

long hours expected

Very competitive environment

Overall a nice place to work but its not for everyone as there is a high level of stress with objectives to attain that are subject to change every 3 months to the point that it makes it difficult to offer a good service to the clients in the shortest amounts of time possible, as every little second on the phone counts and can have a negative impact on your record as an employee.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

difficult to obtain a raise at a certain point.

Who you know is what matter most

It's big company, but after 10 years I saw many example of things that are very unjust and unprofessional. Politic will get at you - watch your back !

Dynamic environment

Very dynamic environment. Great environment to learn continuously and improve your skills. There is no typical day as a manager. It is a culture of best customer service provided every day.

Customer Service

Great place to learn how to sell and interact with customers in a professional way. Great place to learn billing systems and get general information on the latest telecom technologies. However it is a gigantic company and things change quickly and all the time and it is sometimes hard to keep up.

Une excellente expérience acquise.

J’ai cumulé plus de vingt-cinq (25) années de service, dont vingt (20) ans comme gestionnaire dans une entreprise d’envergure nationale comptant plus de quarante-trois mille (43 000) employés. J’ai eu l’opportunité de gérer et coacher des équipes de spécialistes cadres et d’employés non cadres dans un milieu en constante évolution.

Pros

Grand potentiel de développement de carrière

Cons

La forte évolution des technologies créée un rythme accru et soutenu

Bell

Bell Mobility has an amazing brand recognition. Now with too many competitors, they seem to have issues winning new business to the high pricing structure.

Stay away

Stay away from Bell as a service provider or as an employer. They treat employees the same way they treat clients. Disrespectfully! They want your money only and as an employer they want your soul. Stay away.

Cons

Slave drivers

Amazing work environment and colleagues.

Bell was a great opportunity for me to do hands on engineering work. Such as, programming, testing and troubleshooting. Another thing that Bell offers are very kind, driven and patient people who are always ready and willing to help each other out as a team.

Long days and some Fun Perks

Some bosses were compassionate towards your feelings, as to others were not, a typical day at work was making sure all agents had proper schedule's uploading all vacations to the proper agents, meeting with VP's. Long 10 hour days when setting up vacation bids for all agents in the partners. But having a great connection with the partners in Manila was my enjoyable part.

Pros

Free data only if you are a manager

Cons

Long Hours that are not compensated
