Nice people in the US
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJuly 16, 2018
Nice people in the US. Management had no authority over resources in Sweden. Some resources in Sweden took advantage of that and caused problems for the entire group.
Pros
Nice work areas and cafeteria
Cons
Hard to get things done

Field Technician/Engineer - Trainer (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, ILJuly 16, 2018
Ericsson is a wonderful Company to work for under the right Management. They have the problem many big Companies have, The good old boys club...It creates a difficult environment to make changes need for the change in time. There is always enough push to keep things the same, even if cause the company to fail.
Pros
Nice Benifits
Cons
Bad Management

Supply Chain Management was horrible
Entry Level (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJuly 14, 2018
If you were in with the Senior Leadership of Supply Chain, you had nothing to worry about - if you weren't... don't even talk! There were no objective measurements, all subjective so even if you thought you were doing a good job when you got your year end review it were normally shocked.

Horrible management and no support
Field Technician (Former Employee) –  NYC, NYJuly 9, 2018
Yearly raises equated to .25 cents per hour. Was continuously told to get the job done with no help or training on new tools/equipment. Forced to work in different markets and overnight shifts with little to no warning

Ericsson
Services Engineer (Former Employee) –  PakistanJuly 9, 2018
I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)
Pros
Above average benefits, fast changing environment, cutting edge technology, very human-centric ethical corporation. Swedish norms are more employee friendly and value the individual. Mostly a very nurturing, supportive, and collaborative workplace.
Cons
Like most large corporations, Ericsson was usually slow to make needed changes and usually 'over-reacted' because of their own delays. In many cases, the reorgs left many employees with managers that did not understand how the business was run.

Risk Management Claims Analyst (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJuly 5, 2018
I enjoyed working for Ericsson. I didn't enjoy the layoffs. It seemed that there were always layoff. You couldn't become to secure with your job. Then with layoffs, you were expected to pick up the slack.

A technical job outsourced by Sprint. A typical day here was an 8 hour day where you're dispatched out to clients. You dealt with customer premise equipment.

Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MAJune 21, 2018
It was a good place to work while it lasted. A bit bureaucratic, especially about releasing products to the field. It's understandable when products have to be internationalized, but it seemed like the data entry tools were invented in the 1960s and never updated.

Company working towards change
Delivery Manager (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXJune 19, 2018
Too many layers of approvals, mid level managers are not empowered to make decisions.

Internal global programs are driving change thinking to simplify how decisions are made, but this is still slow going.

Work life balance is dependent upon your team. Global teams work all hours, but have remot work flexibility. Region teams are more 9-5, but are required to be in office.

Fast paced environment, always juggling multiple projects and responsibilities. Good for those looking to gain broad experience, but can lead to burnout. It’s important to be self-aware, because people will always expect more from you, not less.
Pros
Good benefits, Pto, remote work opportunities
Cons
Hard to move around/cross train

EFS Area Manager (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COJune 14, 2018
Given Ericsson is a services company it is very demanding and can affect your work/life balance. We work long hours and are on call 24/7. Job security is also a concern given customers have other options.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long hours
