    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Co workers were great. Because the management group we're so disorganized and always in meetings, I learned to be very self reliant.

    Cons

    Management are bullies. They started taking away any benefits that employees enjoyed; examples were The bus shuttle, Christmas party, phone plan, and now people are being laid off to provide jobs to people offshore.

    Advice to Management

    Your employee's happiness is important. You won't keep talented employees if you treat them poorly.
