Friendly and productive work environment
Software and Communications Engineer (Former Employee) –  Kanata, ON20 September 2016
A typical day of work would consist of an early meeting with my team to discuss progress on projects and news. Then I would go to a meeting regarding a specific feature being developed. The group consists of different types of engineers all working together to try and get the feature complete. We would discuss obstacles, progress, and upcoming work. The team worked in an agile way; all the work was done concurrently and work load is shared even if it is not specific to your field. I had the chance to work with systems, software, and PV engineers. The rest of the day I would spend programming, testing, and consulting other people.

I learned a lot about software engineering, feature development in large companies, Wi-Fi, and mesh networks.

The hardest part of the job was getting proper instructions and specifications for features. Sometimes my group felt disconnected from the company. Hard time getting set up with the equipment needed for work, a lot of time was wasted unnecessary.

The most enjoyable part of my work was getting to do different tasks, and learning about software development in the industry. I had a chance to work on many diverse projects that I feel have made me a well-rounded individual in regards to software and communication engineering.
Pros
Friendly learning environment, and good coffee!
Cons
At times development is unorganized.

Great company but sadly no direction
Solution Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 May 2016
Great company to work with - excellent opportunities to learn and excel.
However, heavily over staffed (in BSS/OSS) and top management unable to distinguish between good performance and mediocrity.

Great workplace with friendly, knowledgeable people and balanced work life.
I&V Engineer (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC11 October 2013
The work environment is amazing and the people working there are all very easy to work with and are friendly while being very focused and knowledgeable about their field of work.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was working on something new, but also, it is the strong synergy between team members when everyone is on the same page.

The hardest part of the job would be similar in any other tech jobs, where the obstacle stopping your flow of work is at the hands of another person or management, because they are part of the process as well. At times, it tends to be busy, and that is when there can be like a traffic jam.
Pros
Lunch presentations, BBQs, learning resources, fast communication, great teammates, flexible hours
Cons
sometimes equipment have bad settings or bad parts, some employees work hard with success in high workload do not get the respect they deserve

A open and balanced work place
Software Developer III (Current Employee) –  Ottawa12 September 2015
A typical work day usually starts from a short SCRUM stand-up meeting in which XFT members share what they have done and impediments they have met so that developer can keep in mind of surrounding colleagues are doing and make it efficient to request for support.

Then developers are absorbed into their specific development, including solution design, coding, debug, verification and continuous improvement.

Ericsson provides a perfect working environment where there are a lot of separate meeting rooms in which you can freely discuss issues with colleagues without concerning impact on others.

Afternoon, there are usually some technical seminars or forums which you can freely to join to learn or present your ideas.

Another advantage of Ericsson is its respect culture, which respects employees' idea, interest, diversity and their family lives so that people can keep balance between work and life.
Pros
balanced
Cons
not energetic

Terrible company to work for.
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 September 2015
High level of politics and inter division posturing. Culture promotes spending 12 months debating for what would be a months work, and in the end no decision is made. Frustrating place to work. Incompetence is rewarded while innovation is ignored and eventually buried.
Pros
None
Cons
