Pros

Flexability is good; Genuine care for each customer; Life Balance is ok; upward growth potential; education paid for when you are performing;

Cons

A lot of "do as I say, not as I do"; lots of talk about change, but no desire to actually do it; complex network makes it difficult to provide service/ resolve customer issues; union issues hang over your head, regardless of whether or not you are directly involved in managing unionized employees; too many old-school management who are scared of change and throw up roadblocks

Advice to Management

Shuffle tenured directors around to new portfolios, there is too much "old blood" running legacy services, and they are unable to innovate or see the benefit of new thinking.

    Pros

    great people, good benefits, nice brand

    Cons

    re-org is causing significant pain TELUS as "a great place to work" is too often "talk the talk, but fail to walk the walk" three solitudes "west-wired", "east-wireless", PQ

    Advice to Management

    they all can make good business decisions, teach them how to be better managers. Making all the decisions doesnt make you the best leader, it just makes you overworked

    Pros

    Great work life balance possibilities

    Cons

    Too short-term orientation of senior management, or too little communication about the mid and long term direction. Less and less formal training is provided (no budget) Company is in constant state of re-structuring and the knowledge gets lost. Team members adhere too much to the process than use the common sense

    Advice to Management

    Live the declarations that the employees are very important - provide more training, more lateral and hierarchical learning and growth opportunities. More planning is needed when big changes are executed. Do not offshore our core competencies
