Overall good place to work.
Portfolio / Project Manager (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAOctober 2, 2016
Learned a lot about PMO processes - Both how to do it and not to do it.

Some very talented dedicated staff there.

Too bad there are regular reorganizations in this industry - always going to the "lower cost" solution...

Area Field Service Manager II (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 7, 2016
As with most large companies trying to do more less. Technology and industry is changing and the company is trying to keep up. Layoffs are constant and staff development is poor.

Manager - Region North America (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXJune 23, 2016
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.
Pros
Swedish Company, Benefits, Pay
Cons
Job Stability

Quite a fun place to work when theres no talk about layoffs
RF Engineer (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 5, 2017
Layoffs happen 2-3 times a year.

Lack of clarity from Management, poor top to bottom communication.

Could be a good place to learn and grow except politics is severe.

Field Technician II (Current Employee) –  Connecticut & Western MassJuly 25, 2016
A typical day at work is not typical, you could be working at a site in Eastern CT, then move to the other side if the state, then get a task to meet a customer at a downtown office in Hartford, you need to keep a change of clothes in case.
