Great place to learn, management has deep issues, needs to support staff and manage clients better
Integration Specialist (Former Employee) – Canada – 13 May 2017
Ericsson is a good company trying to enter other market verticals, while its stellar wireless segment is under pressure from lower cost but high quality alternative supplier(s). They have some great IoT, CDN, Cloud and IPTV/Media offers.
Great technology and great people in the working levels and technology development.
Company tends to take customers (mis)directions, doesn't manage them well. Dumps blame to staff, management doesn't support their staff, even when they know the customer is not being truthful.

good learning place, but no challenge. I don't recommend to work here, all technology is very old. young people should meet the challenge place, like internet, AI, robotic industry, telecom is not good for you.Worked at different big software projects. Strong working experience in distributing computing and multi thread system.Excellent experienced software project management and planning.
Very flexible hours and have very understanding management. They have a multicultural positive environment, a lot of training opportunities. It is hard to become part of management and promotion is hard to come.
Integration/Support Engineer RAN & Core (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 February 2017
Ericsson is a good company, and on the top of the telecom industry for many year. Reduced lots of overtime work then before to give employees better work/life balance The culture is more tolerance and friendly.
Free and self management to get better work life balance
less chance to get hands-on training, probably for saving cost
Great work culture along with great people to work with
Software Developer (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 4 February 2017
Worked in XFT where we participate develop features on 4G LTE. Participated in daily scrums where we provide update on current work items and discuss issues that arise from testing and development. Learned a lot of about the application layer of the communication protocol.
Work culture is great, you are provided a mentor and there are product experts who are always willing to help. There are a lot of positions and jobs that allow the ability for you to move around. Teams from time to time will go on team building events in the area. There is a fooseball table for when you would need a break. Hardest part of the job is ramping up and learning about the product, but the people around you are always there available to help.
