Transformation taking shape
Director of Operations (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC11 February 2019
As 4G sales declined in recent years, the need to refocus the company was imperative for its long-term success. There have been extensive portfolio reviews, downsizing and offshoring activities over the past 3 years that are now bearing fruit: a Q4/2018 financial report that finally demonstrated profits beyond analysts' predictions. As the foremost leader in 5G technology, Ericsson is poised to make large impacts across the world, and the refocused company will be able to react and accommodate the massive business that is expected in the coming years.

Rewarding company culture but fewer opportunities to grow
Business Development Director Emerging Business (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC6 February 2019
The company is an interesting place to learn on different topics and one is always surrounded with experts wish makes the learning curve faster.

However, serious changes in the company strategy and competitors landscape are increasingly changing the work environment internally. Tough choices are made and layoffs badly hurt employees' motivation.

No longer working at Ericsson.
Project Support Staff (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC25 January 2019
I enjoyed most of the years I worked at Ericsson. The people were fair and the environment was very good. Colleagues were friendly and always ready to help.
I was able to work at different Ericsson locations which was a very enriching experience.

The last couple (2) of years, however; were more difficult with staff cuts and layoffs, which increased work loads and stress.
Pros
Pleasant environment with many perks, however; the open concept seating did not work very well when I was there.
Cons
Projects often poorly managed, communication from management was poor

Excellent facilities - flexibility in work environment
Software Developer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC11 January 2019
Pressures from market forces require frequent restructuring of organization. The challenges from non-telecom and traditional competitors has forced them to retract their business in many new areas where they were not able to gain traction on market share despite considerable investment and now focus upon their core business on 5G radio ( ie. Ottawa site)
Pros
Building facilties - great people
Cons
Ongoing global restructuring costs to re position company to profitability
