Mobile device verification (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – January 21, 2016
Ericsson has been transforming from a Telecom company to a software company over the last 10+ years and is struggling to make these 2 worlds meet. The people working there are talented and friendly (always willing to help you when needed) but struggle to make sense of the message sometimes being sent from management. A lot of this has to do an Agile interpretation that puts conformance above business common sense. Overall most would agree, a great environment to work in day to day.
Flexible work schedule, social, good benefits
Too many meetings, religious Agile interpretation, too many managers
I worked for a lot of firms throughout my career including some of the Wall Street and Silicon Valley name brands. None of them compare to Ericsson in terms of its culture, dedication to innovation and excellence.
We are talking about the company who defined 99.999 percent on-time as basic operational excellence.
Work-life balance, on-site gym and free fruit is practically the norm but over and beyond it, with Linux for developers and access to newest technologies on site and sharing sessions these guys want me to start coding again.
Advice to job seekers: Apply without reservation, you will be working with some of the smartest engineers in the world.
Career advancement opportunities, innovation drive, culture and work atmosphere.

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – September 9, 2015
High level of politics and inter division posturing. Culture promotes spending 12 months debating for what would be a months work, and in the end no decision is made. Frustrating place to work. Incompetence is rewarded while innovation is ignored and eventually buried.

At Ericsson people can expect to live by the company values. Respect, perseverance, and professionalism. A typical day is to get along with the colleagues in an informal technical meetings, general discussions, non-formal activities represent the back-haul of know-how.
