    Pros

    A lot of freedom to find opportunities
    Work life balance is very good and timings are not fixed

    Cons

    Too much red tape. Things take much longer to get approved as multiple stakeholders are involved.
    Too many meetings for smallest of projects

    Advice to Management

    Overall the environment is great, but should be spending more on career development. A lot of good work is not getting the limelight

    Cons

    There's nothing too terrible about working at Bell Canada, to be honest I am writing this sentence to fill the 20 word minimum for this section. With an organization this size, you are bound to come across something that will not fit your expectation; But the company is constantly changing and striving to be better. I guess I am overlooking faults at the sake of the progress the company is making.

    Advice to Management

    Don't become a dinosaur. Be progressive, be challenging, create new paths rather than following old and used strategies of other larger organizations.
