Whole Operations department got TUPE'd over to Ericsson in 2016/2017. To make good on the contract they shipped our jobs out to India where labour is dirt cheap.

Ericsson did not really care for us properly whilst we transferred over. We were seen as just a temporary commodity to be "care taken" until they could make good on their contract by making us redundant in the UK.


No real opportunities for the majority of staff to move into within the Ericsson organisation itself.


Would never work for this employer again!

Building 5G networks
By 2025, volumes of mobile data traffic are expected to increase by a factor of 4, and 45 percent of that traffic will be carried by 5G networks. Communication service providers now face three main challenges.

Ericsson is a fantastic place to work and is a great company to work for. Ask any recruiter and Ericsson employees are the hardest to head hunt. The benefits are great the people are wonderful. I would highly recommend working for them.

Ericsson is a good company to work but curtain role can be very stressfull due nature of the work load and expectation from the management. Ericsson is one of th biggest telecom vendor and leading the 5G technology ahead of other competitors.

We were lied to and treated very poorly because Ericsson decided to offshore the Change Management team to India. Good money but that was the only good thing about the job.

Salaries are low compared to rest of the industry.

Teams are siloed.

Great colleagues, professional people, good banter.

Flexible working hours.

Don't bother to work for this company, as you will be made redundant in no time. They keep offshoring, automating and cutting teams. One person ends up doing work of at least 3 people.

Ericsson is a good company to work for. The culture in the office is relaxed but can be very pressurised at certain times when big projects are on going. The management tends to be very hands on which is great.
the hardest part of the job depending on your role would be that your are expected to put in the hours needed when their is a big role out on going which can then conflict with your home life balance especially if you have young children.

the most rewarding part of the job was seeing your hard work come into fruition once the role out complete.

Ericsson for the first 17 years was a great company to work for. Unfortunately to the end of my time at the company the work procedures got in the way of actually doing the job and moral of the staff was negatively affected.

Joined an unstructured graduate scheme, seems no one knew we were joining, took us weeks to get up and running on their systems. Expected to work 55 hour weeks with no overtime pay.

Ericsson is a great place to grow your career. They are working on cutting edge technology, have offices all over the world, and employ incredibly talented and passionate people who are great to work with. They move very fast, which can be tough for some, but those who are willing to move quickly can grow and build their skills in an accelerated and meaningful way.
