Good pay, amazing stock purchase plan, but still a big corporate culture
Marketing Manager - Pricing Strategy (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 January 2014
TELUS is a great place to work as long as you are okay with working in a big company. Each role is small in the big picture and it's difficult to see your contributions to the company's overall numbers.
Pay is fair, stock purchase plan is great and their stock is very strong.
Advancing your career is very possible on some teams, while very difficult on others. Luck of the draw.
Overall a great place to work, especially now that they have a downtown Toronto office attached to Union Station.
Stock purchase plan, office location, overall company vision and direction
Large company means lots managers, directors, senior directors, VP's, Snr VP's, EVP's, etc...

At TELUS, in Client Operations, I worked with various key systems and applications and as well as with the Order Resolution team, specializing in resolving culpable system, agent and customer fallout. I was also fortunate to be part of a team that researched, investigated and resolved system migration issues dealing with records management systems and inventories.
Developer/Analyst/Technical Lead (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 3 October 2017
Telus is a good company to work and can be considered for long term perspective. The culture is friendly with optimum work life balance. There are many options to either work from home or work from any of the different locations in major cities of Canada.
Junior Marketing Consultant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 September 2017
Assuming you have a safety net on your income and have the time to improve on the job (which takes around 8 to 12 months), it's a great career, but for those who need a steady salary in order to pay your everyday bills, this job is not a good choice since your first (and probably second and third) month, you will be struggling to do your sales (it is a comission based salary, so no sales = no salary).
