It is a great company

Systems Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time

ProsWork is very interesting with industry leading technologies. There are many training opportunities world-wide. Colleagues are intelligent and very nice and had chance to work with engineers from different countries. Company culture encourages openness and innovative. Benefits are great. Work place is nice and office is big. Work time is flexible and some manager may trust you to work from home.

ConsThere were too many reorganization which created stress on engineers. Moving from office to office may be needed every year.

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

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

I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

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.

Where is Ericsson headed.....

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time

ProsGreat benefits. Absolutely the best around. no cost to employees. A lot of personal time off.

ConsNo career growth here. Direction of the company is unclear too. Impossible to make an internal job transfer. You'd have to know the hiring manager.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Like a cog in a machine

Field Service Engineer I (Current Employee)
Bellevue, WA

I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than a year

ProsIf your an FTE, its very stable, culture is fairly open - very little in the way of learning more about the company or what it does.

ConsCog in a machine, very hard to convert from Contractor to FTE, no real feeling of progress from day to day work, it always feels very hard to get things done.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to avoid one size fits all solutions, focus less on process - and more on results - often you end up with situations where everyone is doing 'their job' but yet no progress is made. Decentralize - the fact that local reqs for new openings in the US must go back to Sweden for approval is just plain dumb, and lastly, hire your long term contractors - when you're paying a contracting house ~40 an hour for an employee making ~25 an hour, how are you saving money? no way benefits cost 60% of an employees total wage - contractors make sense for short duration contracts, not 18 months at a go.
