A open and balanced work place
Software Developer III (Current Employee) –  OttawaSeptember 12, 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

Terrible company to work for.
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONSeptember 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.
Pros
None
Cons

Anon coop (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONMay 10, 2015
Little opportunity to advance in Canada offices. The people were friendly, and management was responsive. Ericsson was an exciting company to work for, and it was a pleasure to be able to spend two co-op work terms there.

Senior Solution Integrator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONMarch 3, 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 compensation, incredible culture, good chance for promotion, awesome place to work
