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

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.

Change in the company

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

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.

Stuck in continual transformation and change.....
Engagement Manager & Senior Solutions Architect (Former Employee) –  Guildford, Surrey22 May 2017
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.

Fast paced and great people but a lot was expected
HR Business Partner (Former Employee) –  Guildford, Surrey13 April 2017
Ericsson was a great place to work with a strong culture. The hours and expectations were excessive. The opportunity to learn was fantastic but recognition and reward was not forthcoming. Total remuneration and benefits were better than average for the industry.
