RF engineer

RF Engineer (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsExcellent work environment, professional, good networking opportunities, and get to work on client projects nationwide. High calibre co-workers, and generally good people to work with.

ConsFrom a contractor perspective, you are not completely part of the team, since you have limited (none) access to documentation and training, which is provided by other companies in this industry. Generally you are processing data in a churn fashion, cookie cutter, and there is more push lately for sending this work to their teams in India, who generally perform less well causing problems for the end customer. However, this company on the corporate level is about maximizing profit, so jobs are gradually moving overseas.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider keeping this type of professional engineering job for engineers withing the United States, with good local engineers you cusomers will be happy, and this will benefit you in the bigger picture, even if you sacrifice a few dollars on the balance sheet for investors, and especially for executive bonuses. If contract engineers were more a part of the team, then they would be more encouraged to move into permanent positions, and really promote Ericsson as a leading company. Part of the team means access to tools and training, and more variety in their job function.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
