    I have been working at TELUS full-time

    Pros

    At TELUS, you work with amazingly smart people and in an incredibly competitive industry so it's an learning ground second to none. I can't say enough about the progressive culture either - working from home is a critical benefit to me to balance family life - and it's available to team members when they'd like as mobile workers creating an environment of trust and loyalty.

    Cons

    TELUS targets salaries in the middle of the market.

    Pros

    -TELUS offers 'work styles' program, whereby employees work remotely for 1-2 days each week, at their team manager's discretion. -TELUS encourages employees to volunteer in their communities and offers team building/volunteering days.

    Cons

    -Department structure in constant flux- no time to get comfortable with current VP, before there's a new one. -Difficult to progress in your career as the organization is becoming flatter all the time. -Despite strong performance, limited budget for annual salary increases and/or promotions.

    I worked at TELUS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people for the most part, great benefits, flexible work from home at least 2 days a week. Work life balance is relatively reasonable for most ppl in Marketing.

    Cons

    CEO has grand inspiring vision that doesn't translate down to management team. Leadership much more focused on short term profits and is more reactionary than risk taking or leading. Little room for advancement once you're a manager. Low salary, does not compete w other telecoms.

    I have been working at TELUS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many great aspects to working here: work-life balance, generally nice people, good inclusion and diversity.

    Cons

    Business is getting too complex to adopt and execute, too much top-down leadership decisions without accounting for teams actually carry out, and the cutting and consolidating of a lot of middle management in this process means that there's less and less leadership support.
