I have been working at TELUS full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Have had lots of opportunities to move around the company. The people that work here are great. They are great at what they do, and are respectful. Peers listen to what you have to say.

Cons

Software projects are very bulky, follows strict waterfalls. If there are resource constraints, the often used tactic is to put contractors on the job, but that doesn't solve any problems.

    Pros

    very considerate of their employees

    Cons

    can't think of any at the moment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    immediate supervisors should learn how to balance the pro-agent & pro management side thing as it will not only promote a more harmonious workplace but also make the company more endeared to its employees

    Pros

    Telus has some good points, and it really isnt a terrible company.

    decent employee discount
    union protection
    some good managers
    decent pay
    hire new people frequently

    Cons

    Some of the negatives of Telus however are:

    Some terrible managers (play favourites, rig the system against union employees)
    Inflexible, they expect you to be always available no matter what.
    High staff turnover.
    Little real chance for promotion.
    Pointless employee satisfaction survey (called pulsecheck) that they ignore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, listen to employees, and learn some flexibility.... also pulsecheck sucks
