      Pros

      Productive place to work with great people. Great benefits and culture. Great support to expand knowledge and skills of the job. Many people end up staying long term.

      Cons

      Was required at times to work overtime, while juggling being a parent, trying to attend my children’s after school activities.

      Software Engineer Review

      Pros

      Bell has good teams, salary, and environment. The first raise was substantial and the overall workspace is good.

      Cons

      Inexperienced managers will give you unfair reviews for the yearly review without giving you a proper guideline about how you can improve your performance at work. Managers and coworkers will expect you to work overtime and answer phone calls after work hours during an "emergency".

      A lot of support, feedback, good growth opportunities. Enjoyed my time there. Would recommend for anyone considering.

      Cons

      Some travel involved - the office location is sometimes hard to get to and not ideal, don’t allow much work from home opportunities

      Pros

      Opportunities to move around within the organization to broaden experience across several functions and business units. Flexible work option is helpful too

      Cons

      Salary increases are difficult. Even if the tenure goes up, compensation doesn't increase as much. At some point, salary becomes uncompetitive.

      Pros

      - Great team to work with - Integral part of the business - everything runs through product! - Great work/life balance - Good training for any business type roles

      Bell IoT- Lacking vision, strategy changes on whim, inexperience shows from day one

      Jul 1, 2021 - Senior Architect in Mississauga, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      People are generally good and want to succeed. However, lack of exposure to software development best practices at all levels (from the very top to those working below them) shows in all teams. The only happy people that I saw there were those who knew 'how to coast' by not doing great work and not taking any responsibility.

      Cons

      - Highly political, promotions are given to people who are in the good books of senior management and not necessarily the best for the job - Senior management has little to no knowledge on how to build truly scalable digital products that customers would use - No long-term customers - Little to no confidence in product managers who have never led digital products in the past - Highly siloed. A 'wanna-be' agile team that cannot escape the age-old waterfall thinking of its parent - High turnover - all good employees leave within 2 years to better/greener pastures. The ones that are left lower the bar and constantly blame the org for lack of training opportunities - High contractor/ FTE ratio - Very little market penetration

      Long hours, average pay, poor leadership practices & culture

      Jun 26, 2021 - Specialist, Customer Marketing in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - You don't need lots of relevant experience to join the team (Managers train you up) - Good projects and cross-functional leadership opportunities - Challenging work environment

      Cons

      - Lots of turnover - Poor culture (long hours, competitive and stressful, big focus on projects over people, serious vibe, old school leadership practices) - Compensation is very average - If a Manager doesn't like you, you get limited visibility & opportunities to grow - No separate salary band for experienced professionals (new grads come in as specialists) - Poor leadership: management engages in a lot of credit stealing, command and control leadership style, expect to be micromanaged and ignored for your contributions in meetings
