    Pros

    Good compensation
    Easy work, flexible hours, work from home.
    Strong brand on CV

    Cons

    Terrible working culture. Heavy politics, promotion is done by friendship but not by performance, and so does laid off. Never receive your workplan, just do whatever you were told. Employee survey results are not confidential, and manager will use it to blame reports who gave the low rate.

    There are many good people to work with, but in general people are awful. if you are bright, hard working and honest, you will be very very frustrated. People blame your mistakes when you done wrong and scramble to take your credit when you done right. Speaking the truth may terminate your career, as people will report every word they heard from you to your manager. Too many best talent left the firm, especially young people.

    Incompentent senior leadership. They lack of the capability to listen to customers and fulfill their needs, nor do they deal with employee honestly.

    Little career development opportunities. no training at all. no feedback. Internal move around is very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the director to VP level senior management or at least rotate them across divisions periodically.

    Former Employee - Associate Director, Finance in Toronto, ON

    I worked at Bell Canada

    Pros

    -Good development opportunities (internal training)
    -Lots to learn in a pretty diversified company (assuming you work for Corporate headquarters)

    Cons

    -Extremely incompetent senior management that is entrenched in the finance organization, making it difficult and near impossible to innovate
    -Union mentality of many managers who have transferred from line jobs after life long careers
    -Employee performance evaluation process is a farce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Obtain 360 degree feedback from employees about senior management, and pay attention to the feedback received from departure interviews; you'll better understand why top talent leaves the company for greener pastures

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
