Site Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee) –  Pleasanton, CAMarch 26, 2018
The emergence of full mobile Internet began a period of growth for the global telecom industry, including Ericsson. After the launch of 3G services during 2003,[25][26] people started to access the Internet using their telephones.

Ericsson’s position as a supplier of GSM equipment to many major operators, and its pioneering role in the emerging 3G standards and associated technology, placed it at the forefront of many of the changes to come. The cutbacks that followed 10 consecutive quarters of losses meant the company could return to profit in Q3 2003, and begin to grow again.

RF Engineer (Former Employee) –  Overland Park, KSMarch 21, 2018
Ericsson provided very good benefits including free healthcare. The work-life balance was very good. As a service providing company, the way they reduce expenses is to cut staff. This happens often.

I enjoyed my time at Ericsson. Learning was at a high level.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAMarch 15, 2018
After Ericsson purchased Nortel I immediately became a Ericsson employee. The technology was diversified and I received valuable training to enrich my telephony knowledge.
As the Sprint employees entered the Ericsson environment, the attitude of management seemed to change from friendly to aggressive which began to drive a wedge between former Sprint employees and former Nortel employees.
Pros
Great pay and insurance.
Cons
Highest paid employees seemed to be the first to be laid off.
