    I have been working at TELUS full-time

    Pros

    Excellent culture; friendly place; beautiful building

    Cons

    Coming from a smaller team and company, I could immediately feel the disconnection from being in the loop, but that is the nature of a large, global company. Not necessary a bad thing, however. As I said, it's just the way it is

    Work life balance, great managers (at least the one I work for), lots of support from other business units, work from home option, great benefits, free to job shadow with other departments etc
