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

Pros

Strong benefits program, excellent opportunity to change careers multiple times within the same company. Industry is exciting and company makes sound business strategies.

Cons

This is a company that does not practice the values that it preaches. It is conducive to a yes-man culture and support hierarchy is more concerned with saving their own skin over developing others. Middle management is a hypocrisy.

Advice to Management

Skip-level meetings would be more effective than PulseCheck.

    I have been working at TELUS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture is great. Lots of opportunity to allow for innovation. Share purchase matching, decent pension and a great work life balance. Working from home is really picking up speed. The TELUS values are the cornerstone to the operation and the company commitment to put the Customer First rings true in everything we do.

    Cons

    The complexity of the company is intimidating when you first start. However, you will be able to manage through that with the support of your manager and peers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and drive the share price higher !

    I have been working at TELUS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Have had lots of opportunities to move around the company. The people that work here are great. They are great at what they do, and are respectful. Peers listen to what you have to say.

    Cons

    Software projects are very bulky, follows strict waterfalls. If there are resource constraints, the often used tactic is to put contractors on the job, but that doesn't solve any problems.
