Great work culture along with great people to work with
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 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.
Pros
Fooseball, Fika (Swedish Snack TIme on friday)

A very accommodating company but lost in Agile
Mobile device verification (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC21 January 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.
Pros
Flexible work schedule, social, good benefits
Cons
Too many meetings, religious Agile interpretation, too many managers

Best company in Tech Space... period.
Product Manager (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC9 December 2015
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.
Pros
Career advancement opportunities, innovation drive, culture and work atmosphere.
Cons
Can not think of anything
