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 did my best in Ericsson and delivered many critical projects under stringent time lines, worked on number of pre-sales opportunities and won many deals. I am very satisfied to see that the solutions that I designed are currently Live in the customers networks Ericsson Canada is highly volatile place to work, there is a lot of job insecurity and and lot of internal politics by the management.

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.
Advice to job seekers: Apply without reservation, you will be working with some of the smartest engineers in the world.
Career advancement opportunities, innovation drive, culture and work atmosphere.

Test Environment Professional (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 9 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.
Valuable Experience, Flexible Hours, Team Building Sessions
Software Developer III (Current Employee) – Ottawa – 12 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.
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 September 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.
