Good place to work, cutting edge of telecommunications

Customer Project Manager II (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC

I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat opportunities to development in different technological areas. A great culture of team work and very good camaraderie, very acceptable cafeteria, in house gym.

ConsNot a great place to grow to higher managerial positions. Work life balance is similar to other companies in technology, a lot of the activities are executed at night.

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

Overall good place to work

Software Developer (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC

I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide for more than 3 years

ProsVery easy-going and laid back. Very nice people. Very culturally diverse.

ConsManagement is a bit too laid back, meaning driven individuals may feel held back. Not really a software company, so they're more focused on telecom rather than software design.

Great company to work for.

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

ProsEmployee work-life balance is important for the company.
