Excellent Company and BEnefits poor actual management

Extremes of collaborative work culture
Director Sales Solution Consultant (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXDecember 12, 2017
Extremely collaborative work culture inhibits company's growth. For important positions, loyalty is awarded over performance. One's image is more important than one's ability to enhance E//'s business value to customers

Stressful with the competition from Huawei pressing
Global VP Network Consulting & Services (Former Employee) –  SwedenDecember 9, 2017
ITs a stressful environment where the strategy is being exploited by the Chinese in all markets with the exception of the USA. This places pressure on the USA employees to work very long hours as they are carrying a significant amount of the global load.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Stressful, management head is down and strategy may be in jeopardy

Low salaries.
Back Office RAN Engineer (Current Employee) –  ilfovDecember 8, 2017
The salaries are low, and even if new responsabilities are given to you the salary remains the same. Comparting with other IT Companies here in Romania, the E// salaries are the lowest, remote work is not allowed (in Ericsson Spain for example it was allowed, like in other companies here like Orange, Vodafone etc..). They are decreasing our benefits ( example: at the beginning, they paid entirely the gym but right now we must pay a part of it).

Good place to work if you don't mind the fear of constant layoffs.

Always laying off

Large company with experiences globally
Director, Internal Communications (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CADecember 4, 2017
The company is going through changes at the moment with new leadership, but the employees are very collaborative and support one another. The company has presence globally, hence knowledge sharing and different viewpoints are encouraged. Hardest part is headquarters is in Sweden and with the 9 hour time difference with PST, can be difficult with working hours. Huge focus on company direction and portfolio.
Pros
Excellent benefits, free snacks and café subsidies.
Cons
No stock options

Poor job security
Field Engineer (Former Employee) –  Remote, IllinoisDecember 1, 2017
Soon after having been recruited by Ericsson, I discovered that they have a goal of reducing workforce by at least 10% annually. This does not make for a secure feeling with regards to continued employment.
Work life balance was something that was mentioned often for a few years but seems to have been completely forgotten about for the past few years.
Department leaders are disorganized, do not value feedback.
Projects, in my experience are extremely poorly managed giving the customers a less than efficient and poorly managed network.

Work from Home
Construction Manager I (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 30, 2017
Enjoyed working at Ericsson. My manager was not the greatest at the time but I have had great managers throughout my time with Ericsson. You are work from home so it was easier to keep work and life balanced.

Benefits and compensation was fair and better than many companies I've previously worked.

Business Operation (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXNovember 30, 2017
Constant intent to change ways of working but no real impact on the actual day to day activities. Definitely not a young people environment, big need to hire new/young talent.

Fantastic company to work for...
Material Planning – Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXNovember 29, 2017
For the first 5 years working at Ericsson, the benefits / bonus / salary increase was great but a recent slump in global sales, increased competition, etc changed that. Global cut backs over the past few years lead to world-wide Reductions In Force, which unfortunately I am part of.
