Running out of ideas
Senior Project manager (Former Employee) –  Guildford, Surrey24 September 2018
THe UK market is one of the best they had, but are losing it. Mixture of remote Swedish management and local UK, often naive, untrained managers has reduced its presence. Belatedly moving to Reading.

Great product portfolio but tin salesman managed.
Pros
Good delivery models and ways of working
Cons
Commercially weak and silo oriented

Work life balance issues

Programme Manager (Former Employee) –  Berkshire29 June 2018
A fairly staid and formal culture when I was there, and could get fairly bogged down in paperwork for paperwork's sake at times. Difficult to step outside of your role just to get the job done.
Pros
nice office
Cons
too formal

A good company
Manager (Former Employee) –  Southampton, Hampshire28 May 2018
Well organised, committed to their staff. Plenty of opportunities for internal advancement and development. Great offices to work in. On the downside, under strong pressure today from competitors and therefore downsizing.

Principal Consultant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London3 May 2018
A difficult place to progress in, on all fronts. Many layers of useless management who will not commit to anything and cannot make a decision. Top heavy company with lip service to employee empowerment.
Pros
Global reach
Cons
Very conservative, slow and siloed

loved working here
Facilities Assistant & PA to IT Director (Former Employee) –  Basingstoke30 April 2018
Here it was a lot about the people and the ralationships you build within the company. Although it was a huge global company, it had the feel of a smaller company.

Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Guildford12 April 2018
It's tough to review due to the fact that I was on a temporary contract for a few weeks, but overall everyone was very welcoming and the job itself was basic so it wasn't too challenging picking it up in a few days.

Back Office Fulfilment Engineer (Former Employee) –  Guildford, Surrey10 April 2018
Good company to work for. I’ve been employed for 10 yrs. Offers flexible working hours, work from home and other incentives. The hardest part of the job is when you starting for new project and you need to learn on the spot but manageable. Good teamwork, Manager and colleagues are very helpful.
Pros
Healthcare benefits
Cons
Change in the company

Technician (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London3 April 2018
Good place to gain working knowledge, but work/life balance is harsh. 12 hour days with very tight turnaround for night shifts, and difficult to get leave due to staffing levels.
Attracts good staff, even in management, but their hands are pretty tied.
Pros
security
Cons
long hours

Huge organisation, plenty of opportunity to learn
e-Learning and Implementation lead (Former Employee) –  Home Based2 March 2018
Incredible culture, really a pleasure to spend 7 years here.
Working from home can be a challenge and certainly dealing with centralized functions and processes is equally challenging (e.g. HR, IT). However so many opportunities to learn and evolve.

Driven Entirely by Shareholder Greed
Head of Department (Current Employee) –  Guildford, Surrey7 February 2018
Some of the brightest and best people I have ever met has been in Ericsson. However, the company has no desire to retain or improve these people when their only concern is shareholder dividends.
This is managed (don't confuse with leadership) by creating an atmosphere of continuous insecurity over jobs, continuous destruction of the industry in developed markets by offshoring to undeveloped markets and therefore reducing cost.
Company claims to have total focus on "customer first". Basically, the focus is on the customers bank balance first. There is no desire to retain outstanding, time served competence or the quality that brings.
Change is change in a technical arena but change without reason makes no sense.
Pros
The people working at national level
Cons
Global Management is utterly disconnected from the real world

Very productive and great fun place to work
Network Engineer - Planning & Provisioning (Former Employee) –  Coventry, West Midlands1 February 2018
Having worked for Ericsson straight out of university, the work environment was great and everyone there was ready and willing to help and work really hard to deliver results for all our customers.

Driven by team spirit everyone was aiming for the same goals, thus making the customer happy.
Pros
Available hot food for all meal times, breakfast lunch and snacks
Cons
Too much emphasis on customer satisfaction to the expense of the company.

Many technical skills are needed in telecommunications and Big Data management. It's a fairly formal environment. It is very useful for learning many network aspects.
