Senior Solution Integrator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 March 2015
I've been working at Ericsson for just over three years now and couldn't be happier. Not all days are sunshine and roses, but no job is. Day-to-day activity includes working on SI Integration of CMS, helping test team for Content Ingeation in Lab as well production Environment and working on issues assigned to CMS team on prioirty basis.
One of the difficult parts of the job is dealing situation where delivery get impacted because of some 3PP issue(s).
Pros

Great company but sadly no direction
Solution Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 May 2016
Great company to work with - excellent opportunities to learn and excel.
However, heavily over staffed (in BSS/OSS) and top management unable to distinguish between good performance and mediocrity.

Great job experience, Fun workplace
Test Environment Professional (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC9 November 2015
This job was the perfect place to begin my engineering career. Their mentor-ship program is very successful, and you eventually get to become the mentor yourself. The experience obtained at this job is very valuable, and was applicable in my future experiences.

The work life was also great, and kept me and all my coworkers happy and productive. Your manager and supervisor seemed more like friends, however there was never any slacking around, as the focus of the job was still very clear.
Pros
Valuable Experience, Flexible Hours, Team Building Sessions

Unhappy place to work
Sr. Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC29 October 2013
The job is not what it was supposed to be. It is boring. And having a manager who has absolutely no idea what his people do does not help. The manager is just a project manager with no knowledge or background related to what his employees do.
The salary is 20% below what salary surveys put similarly employed people at.
Pros
100% company paid benefits plan
Cons
mismanagement

A open and balanced work place
Software Developer III (Current Employee) –  Ottawa12 September 2015
A typical work day usually starts from a short SCRUM stand-up meeting in which XFT members share what they have done and impediments they have met so that developer can keep in mind of surrounding colleagues are doing and make it efficient to request for support.

Then developers are absorbed into their specific development, including solution design, coding, debug, verification and continuous improvement.

Ericsson provides a perfect working environment where there are a lot of separate meeting rooms in which you can freely discuss issues with colleagues without concerning impact on others.

Afternoon, there are usually some technical seminars or forums which you can freely to join to learn or present your ideas.

Another advantage of Ericsson is its respect culture, which respects employees' idea, interest, diversity and their family lives so that people can keep balance between work and life.
Pros
balanced
Cons
not energetic

Great workplace with friendly, knowledgeable people and balanced work life.
I&V Engineer (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC11 October 2013
The work environment is amazing and the people working there are all very easy to work with and are friendly while being very focused and knowledgeable about their field of work.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was working on something new, but also, it is the strong synergy between team members when everyone is on the same page.

The hardest part of the job would be similar in any other tech jobs, where the obstacle stopping your flow of work is at the hands of another person or management, because they are part of the process as well. At times, it tends to be busy, and that is when there can be like a traffic jam.
Pros
Lunch presentations, BBQs, learning resources, fast communication, great teammates, flexible hours
Cons
sometimes equipment have bad settings or bad parts, some employees work hard with success in high workload do not get the respect they deserve
