Project Coordinator/ Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXSeptember 27, 2017
If you want to be overworked, talked down too, be minimized, mistreated, disrespected by management and discriminated due to your managers insecurities while all the while your work is above par and highly recommended by all the people you work with (PMs CPM and RPM, etc) then you would love this place. But watch your back

Not a healthy place to work
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXSeptember 26, 2017
Emphasis on putting all the American jobs in India. Enough said.

A very poor internal culture allowing for much misogyny and preferential hiring and firing based on nepotism and fraternization, ie. members of the same caste. And or hiring interns and keeping them at an intern salary.

I don't recommend it as it is also losing hugely monetarily each quarter globally.

Sad and the morale is devastated there at the North American offices.

Good compnay but going through too many organisational changes
Network Engineer (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CASeptember 26, 2017
Ericsson has always been a great company to work for, with a balanced workplace culture and different job opportunities available. But with too many restructures the last year or so and uncertain future it's hard to stay motivated.

Flexible work environment. Open space which is good for working as a team.
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Piscataway, NJSeptember 23, 2017
Ericsson took over Telcordia Technologiies in 2012. We moved into their culture which includes open space, game room , free coffee. The work space is nice and lends itself to collaborative working. My line manager has been excellent guiding me through me various challenging assignments. My job involved travel which was exciting but at times was difficult as the client wanted us on-site weeks at a time. I have worked with many bright and motivated people - the teamwork is great.
Pros
Free coffee, flexible - work from home on a regular basis, very good health care

Has its good and bad
Engineer (Former Employee) –  TexasSeptember 22, 2017
Company does try and take care of its customers, and has great benefits. Problem is the Work/Personal life balance. Not uncommon to work a month without a day off.

Very difficult to get ahead if you are an American. Their definition of diversity seems to be anyone that has an accent.

A Great Company Suffering Under Poor Leadership
ICT Architect (Former Employee) –  San Francisco Bay Area, CASeptember 19, 2017
Ericsson is a great company with a diverse technical profile and a large client base, but it has suffered for many years with poor management and ill-conceived business strategies.

The salary is competitive for the industry, and the benefits package is decent.
Pros
Travel opportunities, challenging and interesting projects
Cons
Poor top-level management, poor business strategies

Ericsson was great
Cloud Support and Integration Engineer (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GASeptember 19, 2017
I enjoyed working at Ericsson until the layoffs started. Now they are reducing headcount with a chainsaw and are cutting US jobs. Other than that, I enjoyed my time there.

Awful place to work and would not recommend to anyone
eLearning and Multimedia Designer (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXSeptember 17, 2017
Consistent layoffs every year, low pay, awful managers who have no idea what they are doing. All employees are ruled by fear and intimidation. Those who visibly suck up are given special privileges no others are granted. All but management are held to a higher standard and expected to deliver quality and quantity.
Pros
none
Cons
everything
