nice place to work
Software Developer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC15 July 2017
the place is nice to work at.

typical complaints are managers don't know what they are doing.

company is having trouble in general, stocks are doing very poorly, layoffs.

still some good people there you can learn from, good work life balance (not great but it's pretty good for the industry).

Fun place to work with competitive salary for location
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Westmeath, ON11 July 2017
Ericsson provides a very healthy job/life balance by allowing flexible working hours.

Salary is is not competitive when compared to whats offered in Dublin but given the cost of living is much lower in athlone it amounts to about the same.

Work is multi faceted with plenty of chance to move to new areas and opportunity for advancement that is supported from the company

Great work culture along with great people to work with
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 February 2017
Worked in XFT where we participate develop features on 4G LTE. Participated in daily scrums where we provide update on current work items and discuss issues that arise from testing and development. Learned a lot of about the application layer of the communication protocol.

Work culture is great, you are provided a mentor and there are product experts who are always willing to help. There are a lot of positions and jobs that allow the ability for you to move around. Teams from time to time will go on team building events in the area. There is a fooseball table for when you would need a break. Hardest part of the job is ramping up and learning about the product, but the people around you are always there available to help.
Pros
Fooseball, Fika (Swedish Snack TIme on friday)
