      Pros

      Engaging culture Spectacular benefits Ethical and actively pursuing social capitalism Opportunities to grow and move to other areas of interest Numerous lines of business to move to - once you work here, you can move around anywhere even if you don't have experience in that area as long as you've proven your ability to learn Flexible workstyles program Rich employee discounts Focused on mental wellness and work/life balance Smart and collaborative colleagues that will teach you new things Amazing sense of team camaraderie Supportive leadership Dynamic senior leadership team

      Cons

      To get ahead and get a good annual raise, you have to work really hard and be innovative - this is not a place where you can just coast unless you are happy to get cost of living increases.

      Good company and work-life balance

      Apr 22, 2021 - Product Manager in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Management is progressive and is actively improving its policies on diversity and inclusion. Managers work hard to accommodate peoples' personal and professional needs. Work-life balance is generally quite good even in a work from home world. You can stay with TELUS for a long time and there are lots of opportunities for engagement and career development. Benefits are very strong.

      Cons

      Some teams have a low bar for performance and incompetence seems to be accepted or brushed under the rug. If you work with teams or individuals like this and have ambition to perform and progress in your career it can be difficult and uninspiring. High-performing team members often leave the organization for better and more exciting opportunities.

      Pros

      Great people, friendly culture, creative and open minded colleagues. Easy to be a 'big fish in a small pond' if you have some technical background as the place is overrun with PMs and MBA types.

      Cons

      Too many talking head project manager types who don't actually do anything except for have meetings. Lots of 'talkers' and not as many 'doers' . General lack of technical talent except in some small pockets scattered throughout the company. Not non-existent but not ubiquitous like you might find in a 'real' tech company. Compensation is on the lower end, but not extremely below market either.
