    Many learning opportunities and excellent work culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsBeautiful campus, really neat team members, and a great work culture. They put a lot of care into the facility which makes it a pleasure to walk around. Such a diverse team to work with and everyone has something to contribute. I love the prestige and standards associated with the Ericsson name, and the flexible work hours are helpful for parents like me.

    ConsMany changes to keep up with. Being contract has its advantages but I would love to be a permanent employee here instead.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would love to see Ericsson get involved in some sort of Corporate Challenge events and compete with other companies in the area. Also, I am a veteran and would like to see avenues on how I can serve and get involved with other veterans with the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Loved working here

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsMany opportunites for growth. Most everybody pulled their weight in an incredible team effort. Relatvely non-politcal.

    Great Opportunies

    R&D Director (Former Employee) Boulder, CO

    ProsEricsson has many opportunities for advancement and for international travel. Compensation is good, too. Vacation is liberal.

    ConsThere's the risk that your work might be transferred to a lower costs country. The decisions to do so seem totally financial based without regard to the strategic value of the talent pools affected.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. There are a lot of great mangers at Ericsson.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Overall...Good Company, Great Benefits...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Lowell, MA

    ProsGood Salary, Great Benefits...and Worked with a Top-Notch Group of Engineers in Lowell MA

    ConsThe Management Team in Silicon Valley doesn't have a clue as to what they're doing...nor the talent they lost in Lowell. It's too bad...

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement who relocated to San Jose for a "Perk/Hiatus"...should just return to their homelands.
