    I worked at Bell Canada

    Pros

    opportunites to move around
    learning opportunities

    Cons

    Everyone now works remotely making it difficult to bounce ideas off of co-workers and work on resolving issues fact to face. If one wants to talk to someone else, must book an appointment in their outlook calandar and they are always "busy". . People are stressed and overworked thanks to downsizing. They have developed a culture of blaming someone else when something goes wrong. Some managers have really big egos. Not a lot of support for anyone on a learning curve.

    Used to work at Bell years ago, but the culture has changed - people are mean now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking for scapegoats to blame when things go wrong. If you hire a contractor don't expect them to hit the pavement running. Contractors aren't going to know your IT systems inside out and all the quirky business rules that went into deveolping them unless they worked on developing those systems before. If you have special "rules of engagement" such as "cannot take any time off" or I must be informed of events on an hourly basis, tell that to the contractor, don't assume they will know or figure it out. Maybe the company should look at hiring people for the long haul instead of picking up contractors on 3 month terms. Can't accomplish much with terms like that.
