Handling the network outage

Unhappy place to work
Sr. Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC29 October 2013
The job is not what it was supposed to be. It is boring. And having a manager who has absolutely no idea what his people do does not help. The manager is just a project manager with no knowledge or background related to what his employees do.
The salary is 20% below what salary surveys put similarly employed people at.
Pros
100% company paid benefits plan
Cons
mismanagement

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
Incompetence is rewarded while innovation is ignored and eventually buried.

High tech company located in an attractive business park
Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC16 May 2014
The Burnaby location is located within a 20 minutes walk of Gilmore Sky Train and the landlord provides a shuttle bus to the train station during morning and afternoon rush hour if you don't feel like walking. Free parking is provided on site (your choice of underground or above ground, but not both!). Although Ericsson is a large multinational corporation, the Burnaby facility was acquired with the purchase of Redback Networks and still has the odd vestiges of the original "start-up" culture left, such as the incredibly well-stocked break rooms (which incidentally have incredible views of the mountains and the city skyline).
Pros
Good employee recognition, opportunities for community service
Cons
No on-site cafeteria

Summury
Design Project Manager (contractor to Ericsson) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 June 2013
The company it too burocratical, they have many formal and bureaucratic procedures internally. At the same time they do not provide enough training, do not explain how to use those internal company tools, reporting s/w applications for employers.

Little job security: No one tells you any warning in advance about your mistakes, your disadvantages, what shall you improve in your performance. They just come to your desk and inform that you are fired, or your contract is terminated. It ought to be better to let people know what they need to improve in advance, work with people and help them.
Pros
International opportunities
Cons
Too many internal burocratical requirements with lillte training support.
