TELUS used to be good
Business Performance Leader (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 February 2018
I worked at TELUS for 10 years. It used to be a great place to work until they started the "Future is Friendly". That's when it went downhill and they re-orged to the point where it was a terrible place to work. No life balance, no recognition, no vacations and no salary increases. Just a bunch of people stabbing each other in the back with lies.

They lost that lovin' feeling....
Pros
Technology
Cons
Poor Work Life Balance

Great culture, great work life balance. Internal promotion salary increases are limited, hence if you are a high performer, you may want to look elsewhere for compensation more in-line with market.
Pros
Work Life Balance
Cons
Internal promotion salary increases are limited, even for those performing very well

Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON14 February 2018
Telus is a very enjoyable place to work. The workplace fosters a culture of achievements and takes pride in when employees achieve their goals. The hardest part of the job was sometime meeting all the required sales goals especially during the early months.

I enjoyed the culture. Work schedules where on a six week rotation which made long term planning impossible. Pay was reasonable and location was fantastic.

Dynamic workplace, fast paced due to technology changes
Senior Design Specialist (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 February 2018
The most enjoyable part is witnessing a fast pace of technology changes, with something new happening on a daily basis.

Can be stressful as it is a big corporation, with a lot of internal politics which is more difficult to overcome than the actual job.

Difficult to move upwards on the technical ladder as most of the positions require narrow skills, leaving one without options / leverage.

Telus is worst place to work as Contractor. They treat you like slaves. Bad management politics. Too much favourism. Its big machine where no knows whats happening. You can only survive if you can SUCK your manager. People are stealing money right and left but no one cares. If you raise your voice as contractor. You will be slapped.. Please Stay Away !!!
