Surveyor in Toronto, ON
on 15 July 2021
Was good, then bad, and now good again
I really enjoyed my time here. They brought me in at a Jr. level, and pay was reflected in that. However, they soon noticed my potential and moved me up, and my compensation moved up with me, so don't be afraid of an entry level position. That being said, once I reached a level with a poor manager (of which it seems there are a lot) then my career stopped advancing, which ultimately caused me to leave the company as I felt there was no more room to grow.My fellow workers and my immediate supervisor where wonderful, which is why I was so loyal. I had a feeling of accomplishment and felt I was an important member of a team. I enjoyed the work and felt appreciated within my team.My biggest criticisms are the Sr. Management. They treat the workers as a necessary inconvenience and are always looking for a way to pay you less. It is always about the stick, and never about the carrot. Their philosophy is to get the best possible results out of cheap employees, and not to pay more for competent ones, or retain the ones already in the company. Another criticism is that no manager wants to accept responsibility for expenses. There were multiple instances where we were forced to do something that costs much more than necessary, only because we could then bill it to another department. Plus, there was a year where the Sr. Staff/Board made some bad investments and they put the burden on the employees in the form of clawing back of benefits and a wage freeze.The good news is the old CEO was terminated as a result of those investments, and the new one seems more accessible and appreciative of the workers. Hopefully that philosophy trickles down to the Sr. Management team.So my ultimate review is that Telecon was a wonderful company, but unfortunately grew too big too fast and became a bad place to work. However, a new CEO and restructuring looks to be bringing Telecon back to its original glory.

Stressful and working hard
Very weak management. They could not realize who is working and who is not. Time management was very weak , always top level employee spend most of the project time for themselves , so the the employee with low level do not have enough time to finish the projects. Most of the people do nt stay more than one year.

Horrible place to work
I worked for Telecon for 1 year until I had enough of that place, they don’t care about their employees, the bosses pick favourites and aren’t afraid to show it, the management is horrible. I found working for Telecon kinda like working backwards, they would work hard and not smart, I’d highly recommend not applying there unless you want to be a locator

Toxic management
Management does not care about the field workers. Make cuts in the field to save a dollar all while taking safety measures away from employees. I.g. Not utilizing the hydro vac on a drill shot pull back to ensure that you can cross back over existing utilities safely. They say it’s full time work but expect to sit at home during the week because they are not ready for you on site, then they will expect you to make up for production loss that is at no fault of the worker and solely because of managements organizational skills. You want a day off work, your drilling partner will be sitting at home. If they don’t have 150 meters of drill shots prepped for the next day, you will sit at homeThey preach preventative maintenance on equipment but there are so many hoops to jump through by the time they get to it your piece of equipment is broken down, and you will be sitting at home not working until it is fixed. Used to be a great company to work for until this new management came in a little over a year ago. Run away
