    I worked at TELUS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fellow sales team members were usually great folks with a genuine ambition to succeed and help one another. The company offers a wide range of career paths for those looking to differentiate their work experience. The company's investment in fibre infrastructure throughout BC and Alberta is an exceptional undertaking that will benefit Canada for decades to come.

    Cons

    Management was constantly in a state of flux and emergency and not willing to address shortcomings in leadership in sales or other departments across the company. As with all large corporations it is who you know not what you know. This is not inherently bad but it has lead to a current culture of back scratching and protectionism. Sales management continue to rework the compensation structure however it has lead to even loftier targets and less money paid out to the employees. With the AB economic downturn most companies are in a state of cutting staff and services. There is nothing that the sales exec can do about this however this directly affects the compensation of the exec and then management point to poor performance. There was no action on the part of developing/training employees just negativity and demotivating pressure around performance and targets.
