Summury
Design Project Manager (contractor to Ericsson) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONJune 5, 2013
The company it too burocratical, they have many formal and bureaucratic procedures internally. At the same time they do not provide enough training, do not explain how to use those internal company tools, reporting s/w applications for employers.

Little job security: No one tells you any warning in advance about your mistakes, your disadvantages, what shall you improve in your performance. They just come to your desk and inform that you are fired, or your contract is terminated. It ought to be better to let people know what they need to improve in advance, work with people and help them.
Pros
international opportunities
Cons
too many internal burocratical requirements with lillte training support.

Unhappy place to work
Sr. Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QCOctober 29, 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

Lots of learning, but poor pay
Technical Deployment Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ONAugust 2, 2013
There's lots to learn and new technology to work on. However, the pay isn't that great, and the workload is heavy. While Ericsson doesn't pay for overtime and doesn't expect it's employees to work overtime, the workload will make it necessary to put in free hours. Unfortunately, the salaries don't keep up with the challenging nature of the work either. While Ericsson claims that employees can work globally, you have to know people on the inside to actually get placed anywhere outside your region. However, not all is bad. The employees are mostly nice, and the work environment is generally pleasant. There are numerous travel opportunities, all over the world. I recommend Ericsson if you're just starting out in the workforce, and want to see the world and learn a lot along the way.
Pros
travel opportunities, colleagues are friendly
Cons
tight deadlines, rushed projects, poor pay

Great workplace with friendly, knowledgeable people and balanced work life.
I&V Engineer (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BCOctober 11, 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
