    Former Intern - Software Developer Coop in Kanata, ON

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    - great work life balance
    - very nice people
    - very helpful
    - learned a lot

    Cons

    - might feel bored after ~8 months on a coop term; you will kinda stop learning and will be doing mostly support for the application you developed
    - Ericsson in Ottawa doesn't hire new grads or experience people as much. They did hire many previous coops in 2014

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - none

    Pros

    Nice work environment, flexible work time, great teammates and coworkers, working with interesting technologies.

    Cons

    Too many management layers from different perspectives, inexperienced software development control, no sense of progressing, pressure from business unit, very tight deadlines from non realistic commitment made by sales team, way too much management cost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merge management layers to be compact & efficiency ones, promote managers based on management skills but not only talkative, provide fair environment for all employees
