Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – July 1, 2016
Ericsson provides good benefits and decent pay. Unfortunately, there is no loyalty to their long time employees. They over work existing employees and continue to outsource positions to other countries and then eliminate positions in the US. The way employees are treated during the "downsizing" process could definitely be improved as well! They tend to over spend on buildings by making them "IKEA" like. The money could be spent on employee retention instead!
Field Engineer III (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – July 1, 2016
Zero job security. There have been layoffs every year for the last 3 or 4 and quarterly layoffs this year. If you work in Plano or KS then life is pretty good for you. The corporate headquarters is nice. If you work in the field, there is Absolutely NO work / life balance, and when your project is done, so are you. Training and certification is "As Needed" and typically lacking and there is little chance for advancement. Quarterly profits & share prices seem to drive every decision with no regard for people or potential impact to customers.
Good benifits & vacation package.
Constant layoffs, Top heavy management, Inabilities to streamline problematic processes
Awesome Benefits, Competitve Pay, Great Work Environment, Great/SMART! People

Work/life balance ebbs and flows. The pay and benefits are more than competitive but the catch is keeping your job--- Ericsson has a long-running history of laying off a percentage of employees annually to ensure that leadership meets the demands of the marketplace.
Operations Field Technician II (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 20, 2016
It 's a fast pace environment at Ericsson. I have learned to have patients while working for this company due to all the constant changes in the telecom world. The hardest part of this job is keeping track of all my usernames and password's for the applications and platforms. The most enjoyable part of the job is i don't have to sit in an office all day. I get too work out of my truck, the many different locations everyday.
A company that gives opportunity for people to grow

Ericsson is a good company that provides a very fresh environment. Information is available for anyone to study and grow. The best thing about Ericsson is the possibility to travel anywhere and work on a project with different people, getting cultural awareness.

if your from the bay area it is great job if your not willing to permanently relocate then you will struggle. Must be patient with the job. If you have a constructional management degree this is the place to be.
