Telecommunications Engineer in Dallas:
"Ericsson doesn't care about there employees."
Pros: I love new Networks and working on the newest stuff. I love getting the stuff no one can fix.
Cons: Red tape more systems set up to make the job imposible to do. If somthing is working well Ericsson will change it to make it imposible to do. This is all done so everyone going up the chain can see what the worker bee's do. Ericsson doesn't care about if the work is done right but how they can make it look on a database. Sprint has paid tons of money on the network and the Drops and bad coverage areas have only become a bigger problem and the old ones are still there. I don't even tell people I work on the Sprint Network.
