    Pros

    Prior to Ericsson outsourcing fantastic group of engineering talent. Small team all in one location able to accomplish what a company like Sprint never will.

    Cons

    Financial situation forced 90% of engineers to be outsourced to Ericsson. Same people doing the same work with 10 times the bureaucracy. Still amazing people but much more challenging to get things done.

    Pros

    Overall Great Culture and Awesome People. The perks weren't bad, and there is a really attitude of "We are all in this together" that really makes you feel like part of a family.

    Cons

    No certainty about the future and once Sprint came in moral dropped and the layoffs began. Overall a hard environment to work in.

    Pros

    Great team and other teams were always fun and collaborative regardless of differing in opinions. Overall belief that our personal development was important and transparency was a requirement.

    Cons

    Lots of cooks in the kitchen often made it hard to get things done, but we always found a way to deliver.
