Couldn't care less about you
They promote how they keep there employees safe, but all they care about if the service is provided. They will make you work until 12 am, they will push you and push you if you let them.
ConsThey couldn't care less about the employees

ProsGreat place to work
Great Skills, Opportunities for Learning
Management is very fair and communicative, the workload is good and pay is very fair. The company offers a lot of room for career movement and improvement.
Fun and forfilling work place
Every day is different. Some days there can be many emergencies, it can be busy and there can be a lot of unhappy owners worried about their pets. I have gained immense people skills and can solve situations, explain and go through problems with their pets in a compassionate and caring mannor. Veterinary practises are always very busy and many people can become stressed. I have always been good at handling work excellent and going with a situation and not taking it to heart. Other days can be quiet. I always utilise this time to catch up on paperwork or even find simple jobs, such as sorting stock cupboards etc. Every day is a learning day for me. Or days i can better my skills and become and even stronger emember of staff. I believe my opninion is valued as collegues takemy advice and value it. We have a lot of work expereince therefore it is my responsibility to teach them how a practise is run daily as well as giving them jobs to forfill. The hardest part of my job is talking to devistated owners whom are loosing or have lost their oets. I built up a respectible relationship with them and i beleieve they appreciate my kindness towards them. Ever part of my job is enjoyable,but id say the most rearding is helping these animals to get better and/or helping their owners to take better care of them.
Prosrelationship eith collegues. Having excellent pet care for my animals.
ConsBecause the team is so small often work with minimum staff.
Fun and easy going workplace
A typical night shift can often start quite quietly as you begin the shift you start putting glasses away that have been left in the glass washer and then begin to serve more customers as it gets busier around 8pm-9pm. Going around and collecting glasses from around the inside and outside of the pub as well as empty ash trays from outside too.
This was my first job and the management and fellow staff members were very kind to me and taught me how to pour pints properly, make (for example drinks like) JD and coke, change barrels and the draft pepsi.
The hardest part would have to be on a particularly busy day (often Bournemouth home matches, family fun days and big football games ie, Euros) as you often have to try to manage your team, keep on top of making drinks and collecting glasses.
The most enjoyable parts of the job are probably karaoke nights where its more fun and you feel more relaxed behind the bar.
Prosyou are allowed one alcoholic drink before shifts
Consfinishing at 1 am on Fridays and Saturdays

Would have been the 3rd Major Telco
BellTel was a very promising career choice for me as I was joining what wold have been the 3rd Major Telco player having been involved with the 2 incumbents.
A typical day at work would involve getting updates from the Project Managers for reporting to relevant stakeholders at the start as well as the end of the work week. Management was very supportive and Roles and Responsibilities were clear enough so as not to sow confusion on who does what. My co workers were very much suited for their jobs as most were ex Telco employees coming from SMART, Globe, Digitel/Sun, Bayantel, etc.
The hardest part was working under uncertain terms when Telstra pulled out and then the eventual sale to PLDT/SMART and Globe while the most enjoyable part was working for an elite team that would have been the Best IT Team in the Best Telco.
Prosfinancial reward, highly competent workforce
There does not appear to be a typical day at work and it really just depends on what is going on. Currently I am working with a creative designer / author on a web-based language education business and initially I knew very little about this field but in preparing the business plan one has to absorb a lot of relatively unfamiliar material - this I find fascinating, enjoyable and stimulating and I think the business plan is all the better for it.
The hardest part of this particular exercise is making sure that the wishes and the inevitable "trade-offs" that go with an exercise of this nature are accurately and sufficiently reflected in the final plan.
Prosworking with clients to develop solutions to their challenges and issues
Consnot having someone to bounce ideas off can be a little challenging
A great place to work with opportunity to travel to several states throughout the USA,
This was a consulting position working with start-up telecommunication companies in several states including Cleveland, Ohio; Denver, Colorado; Fayetville and Greensboro, North Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; Landover, Maryland; Silver Spring, Washington DC.
The position was varied which included writing technical documents for training of customer service representives; troubleshoot the timely processing of service order for connection of telephone service for business and residence.
I enjoyed the job thoroughly. I worked in a team environment wich was quite enjoyable.
Prosmet people from several states.
Rewarding and Collaborative Workplace
From my experience at Bell so far, I have seen that the culture is one of learning, development, growth, hard-work (things move really quickly), and work-life balance.
The leadership in my unit is positive and challenge each employee to see the broader business goals. My manager is excellent at understanding what additional responsibilities would help my overall career development and has helped me attain opportunities for more exposure to senior leadership.
ProsCompensation package, growth opportunity, trust, collaboration
ConsOffice location not easy to commute via transit, physical office not a lot of natural light

A good step up in the industry
My day to day work at The Bell included looking after customers, serving drinks and food, checking back on tables, taking payments, looking after staff, setting up the bar and restaurant areas, general housekeeping, cashing and locking up. I learned a great deal and I feel it has given me the confidence to look to the next step. The hardest part and the most enjoyable part of my job was to keep the customers happy, and also gaining my personal licence qualification.
