Principal Consultant (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 3 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.
Head of Software (Former Employee) – Southampton – 22 April 2018
Ericsson Television are a highly technical business built on the foundation of many businesses which have joined together. They operate at a high technical level in a difficult marketplace across the globe.
Global Head of Recruitment Operations (Current Employee) – Guildford – 13 April 2018
loved my time here in both singapore and the uk. Lots of interesting, smart people to work with, solving world-changing problems. Having some financial struggles, but i hope they'll come good, it's a fantastic company
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Guildford – 12 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, Surrey – 10 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.
Technician (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 3 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.
e-Learning and Implementation lead (Former Employee) – Home Based – 2 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.
Head of Department (Current Employee) – Guildford, Surrey – 7 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.
The people working at national level
Global Management is utterly disconnected from the real world
Ericsson is great place to work with great environment and flexibility although recently things hasn't been the same and there a lot of organization changes happening that no one is having enough to cope with .
Media Services Manager (Former Employee) – White City, Greater London – 2 November 2017
Such a shame to think this beached whale of an organisation once used to be the mighty BBC Broadcasting. There are a lot of good people in this organisation but the sad fact is they are simply too late to change the direction of the company in a way which will secure their future.
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Stockholms kommun – 30 October 2017
A little more relaxed than most office, but everyone gets on with their job. International company with flexibility and the funding to train its staff. You will be at the forefront of the telecommunications world.
