    Pros

    Corporate culture - you need to do your job not show up at a specific hour
    Excellent benefits - stock, RRSP and insurance
    Work from home is considered "natural", not a way to skip work by both employees and their managers

    Cons

    Big company thus less efficient
    Politics (it's more important who you know or talk to) - especially in TQ

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure if this is something you can change because of the company size but I have witnessed a lot of inefficiencies and money thrown down the (agencies) toilet just to be compliant with the "legacy official way" of doing things.

    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
