I have been working at TELUS

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

    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
