Typical of a large (Canadian) company. A company with such diversity of business has good and bad sides.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I worked at TELUS full-time for more than 10 years

ProsReasonable benefits. Reasonable work/life balance although it depends on the nature of the job. This company is very keen on flexible hours and working from home so it is great for a variety of lifestyles. They are good at providing the required tools such as laptops, cell phones. There are many business units within the company and therefore plenty of different types of jobs with varying degrees of skill sets.

ConsThey do not live up to all their promises agreed to during the hiring process. Incentives tend to be forgotten over time. Personal performance reviews tend to be linked to overall wage ceilings as opposed to personal performance. Opportunity for training is restricted by cost and some technical departments only reward those who rate high on the curve following overall business unit performance reviews.

Love this culture! So progressive and refreshing!

Manager, Marketing (Current Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I have been working at TELUS full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAmazing culture - young and driven professionals that work hard and play hard. Exciting brand and products that are leading in the Canadian telecom space. Learning and career development opportunities are encouraged. Flexible WorkStyles - we use technology to work where and when we want. Great share plan - employer matching. And the list goes on...

ConsNot all offices are on par with the swanky York Street building in Toronto, Slater in Ottawa, or the soon to be built TELUS Garden in Van. Nothing much else I can think of though...
