    I have been working at TELUS

    Pros

    - vacation starts at 3 weeks + 3 personal days
    - decent benefits - not directly money in the pocket, but it adds up
    - dynamic environment, exposure to everything

    Cons

    - work/life balance is a joke - most of the people are sliced between 3-5 projects at the same time
    - processes becoming the purpose of work - passing around the "status reports" is main expectation
    - managers tuned out or micromanaging - too many questionable choices at lower management
    - senior management not advising of strategy, even talking publicly opposite of intended strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If company wants to change, to reach next CMM level, it has to go in order: people, process, technology. Treating people just as drones and leaving them last in the chain breeds resentment - start from people, put some walk behind "people are greatest assets" talk.
