    I have been working at TELUS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good share plan, excellent work life balance and endless career opportunities. This is a company who rides on the cutting edge; if you don't enjoy change TELUS is not for you! Excellent contributor to the community!

    Cons

    Salary compensation works on a bell curve. High performers are well rewarded, however team members who fully contribute can get left behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation policy needs to be reviewed. Too many good team members have not received comp in many years. Continuing to reward only the top 20% will harm the company in the long term.

    I have been working at TELUS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing culture - young and driven professionals that work hard and play hard. Exciting brand and products that are leading in the Canadian telecom space. Learning and career development opportunities are encouraged. Flexible WorkStyles - we use technology to work where and when we want. Great share plan - employer matching. And the list goes on...

    Cons

    Not all offices are on par with the swanky York Street building in Toronto, Slater in Ottawa, or the soon to be built TELUS Garden in Van. Nothing much else I can think of though...
