Featured Review
"Top Utility"May 28, 2020

Current Employee - Electrical Engineer

I have been working at Hydro One full-time

Pros

Safety is always priority #1

Cons

High payments towards Pension plan

"Great company"May 7, 2020

Current Employee - Software Developer, New Grad Program

I have been working at Bell Canada full-time for less than a year

Pros

Dynamic, kind, helpful, and family oriented company. It feels like Bell truly cares about you. Colleagues are there to help you out. Using modern technologies. They will invest to grow your potential... more than any other tech company. Great healthcare plan

Cons

Not many social events outside of work (I.e. 5-7pm). Only a 35% discount on Bell wifi and other services. Many silos at bell. There is a disconnect between division to division. No available high... level tech plan on how to connect all business units together.

Advice to Management

There needs to be more inter collaboration between business units to another. I.e. have an open session where internal people can learn about what other people in the business are doing; to therefore... see if that tool could be reused elsewhere.
