Market Intelligence Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 25 January 2019
Overall this is a good company to start your career in. Most days are hectic which means you need to really manage your life balance. The difficult part of working here is the speed with which change happens...so if you thrive on change this is your place. The people you work with are the best and if you're lucky to be co-located even better. It is more difficult when your team is scattered across the continent though. If this is your first job don't plan to stay more than 5 years or at least seek movement through the company if you are going to stay longer.
Work from Home, reasonable benefits, Life balance if you work at it
No life balance if you're driven by the next executive fire!
Sales Team Leader (Former Employee) – Leader, SK – 2 February 2019
Good company for people that want a steady paycheck and reliable hours. I worked there 20 years ago, the company culture in my department could have used some work. I noticed that it was not the most qualified that advanced.
Working with large groups of people
Advancement not always guaranteed if you work hard
Help Desk (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 7 February 2019
Bad environment, poor values, bad management, micro managing, extremely limited scheduling options, working weekends is mandatory, many attempts to give comp packages to leave job, feelings of dead-end job, tools given are not good enough, large possibility of outsourcing to South America.
High stress. poor work life balance, no job security.
PM II (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 10 December 2018
They give you all the tools you need and the ability to work from home. In the beginning they build you up and give you awards, then they pile the work on to the point you have to put extra time in to finish. Once you are overloaded with work then they start lowering you PVAM score to make you work harder and more efficient. Most layoffs occur in November and they always let you know on a Thursday.
DIRECTOR, Corporate Development (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 30 November 2018
Great company to work for. Good compensation and benefits. Work/life balance becoming challenging as the both the company and industry evolve. Next few years may be challenging for the company and the industry.
Sr. Client Relationship Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 5 January 2019
TELUS is a great company to work for with lots of opportunity to learn, to drive your career the way you wish and benefits are second to none. While working there you always feel that the next round of layoffs will occur and that you may not have a desk the following morning.
Career advancement, benefits
continuous restructure and layoffs, too much change never allows teams to adapt and become proficient in their roles.
Customer Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 February 2019
Good environment with good people that are passionate about there jobs. The benefits are good and salary is competitive. The company recognizes good work and promotes from within, when possible. The company also looks to bring in talent from the outside where it is needed to change paradigms and improve performance.
Senior Project Manager - Consultancy Contract (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 12 December 2018
Great company to work with; great team. The more you engage, the better your chances for advancement; Don't stay on the fences, have our voice heard, and things will go very well. Regarding the compensation, TELUS can do better.
No guarantee of a making a career with Employer anymore
Manager (Former Employee) – Alberta – 6 February 2019
This company has been shuffling and restructuring over the past 4 years. They are no longer focused on having there own locally employed field workers anymore. they have been cutting there own employee's out and contracting work out, with the majority of the work contracted to outside employers. Including contracting work to companies outside Canada. Support for field staff has gone down hill, stress level is high wondering if you will have a job tomorrow or not. Management is terrible they are not upfront and micro manage from there computers. everyday is a CYA day from start to finish. The pay is okay, benefits are good, the people you work with directly are okay. Training has gone down hill and so has the quality of the work been done, they don't show any interest in the quality of there new fiber builds. The executive's of this company are more concerned in showing the numbers to there stake holders then supporting there front line staff..
Working in my community making it right
stress, poor management, you are a number here, will I have a job with this company tomorrow
