    I worked at TELUS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great colleagues - Get paid fairly for what you do because of the Union when I started. Not sure now because Union has changed. - Shares - Good benefits

    Cons

    - No work life balance - They keep taking away more and more from agents like the cellphone plan they used to have for employees, work xmas events, overtime pay. - Move you from one department to another as they see fit.
