    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide

    Pros

    Great technical people
    Strong understanding of operator industry
    Vision of ICT world right
    Respected by customers

    Internal orientation that is perceived as arrogance by customers
    Not sales oriented in new growth areas .. Radio success holding back change despite clear signals from top leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operator customers now need resolution to hard problems. Strong nngineering only processes need to be supplemented in non radio areas by flexible processes, GTM, business partnership models else full potential of company will be unrealized.

    Pros

    Global opportunities, good compensation. Industry is fast moving.

    Cons

    A very top-down driven company. It is not known for quick decision making. Compliant to the culture/practice is valued over performance.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Managers usually shield developers a bit from stresses like deadlines (at least in R & D)
    Friendly environment and nice people

    Cons

    Feels very stagnant, and everything is overly bulky (too many layers of management)
    Low wages
    Not many perks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lean up on the layers of management and let teams be more agile. Also increase compensation to competitive levels.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    you'll have the famcy name of ericsson in your CV

    Cons

    I was there as an intern, i did not get nothing from them, no word, they don't want to take people in charge, we have a contract to spend at least 50% of time there but they said they don't have enough space, its not professional

    Great internship program

    • Work/Life Balance
    Former Employee - ITTE in Montreal, QC
    Former Employee - ITTE in Montreal, QC

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people you work with are very nice, they understand that you are a student and that you don't know everything yet. The workload is very reasonable and they offer a lot of activities besides work (for example, they have clubs, a gym, free massages, etc.)

    Cons

    An an intern, I can't really think of any cons for doing an 8 month internship in Ericsson Montreal. The only thing I can say is that sometimes, some people in other departments can freak out when we are out of time for a project.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, nice working environment, open culture, encourage innovation, constantly improve itself to create a better and more efficient working environment, respect people

    Cons

    The salary is not very competitive, and there is no big difference between good performer and poor performer. The company is not bold enough and fast enough to enter into new business area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Increase the salary gap between good performer and poor performer.
    2. Enter into new business area early and move fast.

    mentorship and open-arms for the new guy

    Former Employee - Software Engineer

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was working as a software developer intern:
    - They allow flexibility for work-life balance. I had a two hour window when I could choose to come in (and leave 8 hours later). In the Montreal R&D center they have a lot of activities that employees can do to relax (yoga, massages, gym) and stimulating clubs that engineers form. Really a great place to work.
    - I was given a lot of guidance and mentorship from the get go which was fantastic. I was trusted with projects by my team with the mentality that in the worst case, I'd learn a thing or two from doing it. I thought that was great.

    Cons

    - I am not sure how good upward mobility is.
