Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Ireland4 November 2019
Very, very weak management. Great engineers but terrible managers. Completely different skill set, and most managers there are out of their depth. Badly in need of management training.

Not all lower management fault though, as the regional strategy and directives coming from up on high were a joke. Completely disconnected from reality.

Dangerous place to work in too, as I saw a lot of highly "questionable" attitudes taken towards certain employees. On paper they profess themselves to be impeccable.

Culture is one of intimidation. Saw many colleagues "heavily encouraged" to travel to dangerous locations to keep utilisation high. Very much "the boy's club" mentality. Was always amused at the exact same dress sense all the managers had.

Unclear deliverables, poor pay and very high workload. Highly competitive environment with little or no collaboration.

Not personally recommended as life is too short. Some people may like that environment though. Each to his/her own.
Pros
Travel to atypical locations. Get free immunization jabs and malaria pills.
Cons
No direction, training, clear deliverables. Management structure is non existent.

Ericsson really helped me to learn a lot they motivate people to apply their knowledge and gain experience. There are lot of different areas to work in but very hard to move so you might get struck working within the same team for very long time.
Pros
Great working environment, free tea-coffees, gets hand dirty with latest technologies
Cons
Not much interest shown by management in career movement

Managing the delivery of principles of strategy execution to senior management teams across Ericsson was very rewarding. Working with CEOs and CFOs to understand the strategy for the organizations and converting these into strategic programmes was a great achievement and very interesting.

Customer project manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin7 January 2016
Allot of the management decisions where poor and the blame culture chased the wrong culprits in the majority of cases. Ericsson was trying to improve the culture but didn't look to it's own management to improve.
