    It' really a good experience to work with Ericsson.

    Network Engineer (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsYou not only will have diverse opportunities, but also enjoy an open culture that encourages idea generation. You will feel very welcomed there.

    ConsIt's hard to say something that I don't like Ericsson. But if I have to say something about that, I can only say that sometimes you feel you are pushed to finish your work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey are very nice.

    Excellent with a lot of learning experience

    Software Developer (Former Employee)
    Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsThe people are nice, the work culture is very good, there are many good mentors and the salary and compensation is also very good. Ericsson is a leader in the telecom industry and there are a lot of innovations and many things happening everyday

    ConsIt is a very good company and does not offer all the benefits one get from working for a smaller company. Some of the processes are impersonal and you don't have control over some technologies

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe upper management is caring and close to workers, you get to meet them time to time

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