I worked at TELUS full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Reasonable 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.

Cons

They 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.

    Fantastic working environment, great benefits, good people, strong career paths. I really really like working here, they are also ethical,

    Cons

    Lowish starting salaries, especially relative to the greater toronto area region. Though I'm sure that'll change with time.
