Mobile device verification (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 21 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.
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.
