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.

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
