    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.
