    As much as I may have learned from the experience, their Unpaid Internship is unethical

    Creative Associate (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsAs a creative, and a student I did learn some great on the job skills. It's kinda hard for me to judge the PMP. I did learn some important things for myself that helped me out later (technical skills), however if you can get them at a paid job I HIGHLY recommend doing the latter.

    These are not skills exclusive to PMP. AT ALL.

    ConsSide work seems pretty much like the busy work they didn't want their actual employees to do. Expect to work long hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt least pay for gas, food, something!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great boost to learning corporate experience

    Technical Support (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsAll working staff act professionally and are great people to network with.
    The working environment is extremely good. There are little to none working politics involved which is great motivator.

    ConsBell Mobility needs to develop more social programs where employees can contribute and give back to the community in social events such as blood drive and more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeeping passionate employees motivated will always boost productivity.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Time not well spent

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsSome really good people to work with..but most of the good people are let go.

    ConsThe culture is to obscure information, or maybe that is the industry. 7 years after I started the system finally tells you how many minutes you have left on your account.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAny part of Bell should be a leader, transparent and honorable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A good place to start, but compensation is lacking and perks are disappearing bit by bit.

    Small Business Account Associate (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsDecent pay for entry level and sales jobs can pay quite well. Good work life balance, if you have the right manager. Excellent benefits and very generous vacation allowance.

    ConsSalary is based on at target earnings. When targets are raised the commission per sale decreases; if your target goes up 20% you must increase your sales volume 20% to make the same compensation as before. In order to hit numbers reps are often pushed into morally grey areas by managers who will deny any involvement if the rep is ever investigated.

    Career advancement is something that is always promised, but never delivered. You will have higher level positions dangled in front of you, but they will have already pre-selected the candidate they want to hire; they only go through the motions of posting it to make it appear that there are opportunities.

    Used to have an unlimited cell phone plan, but now it has a data cap and new hires don't get this perk anymore.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you bite the hand that feeds you by cutting your salespeople's compensation don't be surprised when they leave to work for your competitors and bring your customers with them!
