    I worked at TELUS Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are very supportive of each other and work cohesively as a team. Informal work environment and telecommute options boost satisfaction without jeopardizing performance against company targets. TELUS Health also offers an excellent, comprehensive benefits package. TELUS CEO has a passionate commitment to improving the health of all Canadians.

    Cons

    Because TELUS Health is part of a much larger corporation (TELUS), it can sometimes be difficult to identify and engage the right colleagues in various parts of the company when their expertise is required for a particular initiative.

    I worked at TELUS Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solutions and service are still evolving, creating lots of opportunity to contribute knowledge and expertise to a socially responsible effort. You can truly make a difference and be rewarded with exciting career options if you are willing to accept the challenge.

    Cons

    Ongoing integration and re-organizing activities can make it difficult to keep priorities in focus and make progress on meaningful projects. Find the right group and leader to align with and your career will progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish better value metrics for emerging products or risk spending a lot of time and effort/$ on solutions that customers don't adopt and at the expense of reliability and quality service.

    I worked at TELUS Health

    Pros

    TELUS is involved in several sectors including health, if you're lucky you can work on some very interesting projects in that sector, develop your skills, and as others have mentioned you will have very good benefits plus the option to telecommute

    Cons

    Your division, who you know and your office heavily influences your career progression, as does your decision to taken advantage of telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should you ever notice that the same areas score low consistently low on the annual internal reviews, don't discount that as :"being expected"- there's probably a good reason for it.

    Pros

    Work environment is casual. People are very friendly. It is possible to get some interesting projects but the experience may not be sufficient for career progression to more challenging opportunities.

    Work could get a little boring after a few assignments. There aren't many facilities for employees apart from a coffee machine and a lunch room. The coffee is terrible.
