    Overall I am satisfied working at Ericsson, I have a freedom to work in an office or WFH as needed

    RF Engineer II (Current Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsPersonal Freedom
    Proactive environment
    Customer Focused
    Working with the latest in 4G technology

    ConsFragmented org structure which often leads to finger pointing. Cost cutting has lead to decrease in new hire quality in some organizations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think senior management needs to be franker with the employees and organizations within the company. This way all groups are aware of the issues and the weak points. This will cause the weak links to either improve or for other groups to take over their functions thus eliminating the need for the weak links.

    With Ericsson US, I had a great experience, worked with great people, and had excellent benefits.

    Human Resources (Former Employee)
    Duluth, GA

    ProsExcellent benefits, great people, very good home life/work balance in the division in which I physically worked.

    ConsUnfortunately, the company was so large that individuals got lost in the mix. Organizations were spread across the US and there was no synergy. The company centralized benefits and payroll leaving employees without support and representation locally.

    Growing pains

    Engineering Manager (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsEricsson is a large worldwide company with the global reach and deep pockets to go for big goals.

    ConsThe company is growing so much that it is increasingly difficult to navigate the internal sectors. Seems like the left hand often doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more internal synergies. Focus on end results and not just on setting up endless "processes" that sometimes result in even more confusion.

    Challenging, Creative and Higher Dependency tasks

    Service Engineer (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsGreat environment, Higher professionalism within the team. Manager and Mentor are of great support and they give you the right freedom to get the job done. They are never behind your back...

    ConsLack of same skill set human resource to get the job done, in turn creates great dependancy for you as you are the only person working on a task.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't have any significant advice

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Company overall to work with

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsExcellent benefits. Flexible working multi-culture. Multiple vendors leads to an extensive knowledge gaining opportunity for employees.

    ConsManagement is not very good with employee growth. Talks exist forever about supporting internal growth, but there is no good action taken even when employees express deep interest in growth opportunities and support.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on internal employee growth more. Encourage lower management to focus on employee career interest.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
