    I worked at Videotron full-time

    Pros

    Some areas are very interesting. A lot of good people in there.

    Cons

    If you aren't in the said interesting areas, you are working on the old systems. It can be downright mind numbing. The company has been starting an agile turn, for the last 3 years. They are very much in a waterfall mindset. Processes are defined but not followed and delegation of responsibility is null and void. Some key systems are decades old despite multiple attempts to remove them.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate, trust, listen, have managerial courage. Managing up makes one look good...managing down insures that the company looks good.
