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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

Pleasant workforce but overall expectations are very high. The apparent stress levels are therefore visible and only the good management of the workforce keeps it bearable and at times quite pleasant.
Pros
Free parking
Cons

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.

Unfortunately during my time there was a continual lack of clear strategic direction compounded by poor leadership over the three! change programs that affected my area.

However, working facilities are good and colleagues and other employees are very helpful - so has a good employee culture for now.
