    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.

    Keep up the good work! The buildings could look a bit more modern to help stimulate innovative ideas.
