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

No strategy, floating adrift
Media Services Manager (Former Employee) –  White City, Greater London2 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.

Implementation Manager (Current Employee) –  Guildford, Surrey20 September 2017
Ericsson believes strongly in its employees having a work/life balance and offers flexible working hours for employees with growing families and regularly organizes out-of-office events for employees to relax.

It's a large organization that offers a lot of career progression opportunities, enables me to take control of my career and utilize the vast amounts of wisdom that the many experienced professionals I work with, bring to their roles.

Big company, isolating role
Live Subtitler (Current Employee) –  Ealing, Greater London9 September 2017
Subtitling is carried out in individual booths, away from open plan office workers. My Team Leader is distant, leading to frustration as I'm unable to air views and opinions professionally.

Services Engineer (Former Employee) –  london5 July 2017
Death is binary. To be or not to be. That's almost impossible to figure out non existence. It doesn't make sense. We have our religious, traditional rituals to tame our grief. I needed more, different ways of facing this cold reality. I hav
