Handling the network outage
Field Tech II (Current Employee) –  TorontoAugust 20, 2013
During the last storm ,there was huge outage in the network due to power outage in GTA area.
We start getting alarms by the eveing for power loss at sites.
We mange the power at different sites to keep the network running for maximum time.
At the time of restoration ,everyone was involved from top level to lower to bring the whole network up and running in shortest possible time.
Pros
appreciation by management and customer.
Cons
long hours

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

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.

Fun and engaging work environment
Sourcing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONFebruary 6, 2013
Sourcing Specialist for Ericsson Canada, reporting directly to Sourcing Director on business engagement activities.

Typical tasks:
- Create, analyse, and present Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) to clients during governance meetings, highlighting areas of concern to discuss action plan and areas of improvement
- Initiated Business Due Diligence and vendor on-boarding process and provided manager input on whether to engage in further business with potential companies
- Communicate with executives of vendors on a daily basis, maintaining a healthy, positive business relationship
- Responsible for issuing RFP's and ensuring cost savings for Ericsson

The best part of working for Ericsson was that I had the opportunity to take on a significant amount of responsibilities. As 1/3 of the sourcing team, I was empowered to make important decision and was responsible for work that made a large impact
Pros
very empowering experience, took on a lot of responsibilities
Cons
small team
