Constant organisation changes, Stressful

* Poor work culture* Great opportunities and pay increases for graduates but not for long term staff.* Contractors & permanent Staff performances are compared equally during restructures and redundancies. But permanent staff need to complete additional internal organisation certifications & KPI obligations.* Middle management are powerless within the matrix organisation - confusion between projects and line management are consistent. My manager does not know my job function...

Pros

free food and drinks if your project has the funds

Cons

long hours, stress, high rate of divorces, plateau in career development

Global opportunties

Good workplace, treats employees with respect and provides good flexibility. Sometimes can get stuck in large company dynamics such as cumbersome processes. Opportunities can be limited depending on which part of the company one is working in..

Australian operations downsizing

Ericsson was a great place to work when I started over 23 years ago. The opportunities I had working in other countries and the people I met was great. Ramping up of competition in the vendor market space, global economic pressures and increasing pressure on operational profitability has taken a lot of the personal touch that made this company special away. Toward the end of my employment, I often did 12 to 16 hour days trying to align to meetings around numerous time zones and continents. The additional hours were considered as professional time, and it became increasingly hard to find any work/life balance.

Company that provides great development, support and guidance to grow a successful career

Every day brings new challenges and opportunities in Ericsson. It is vital to embrace and support this for a long and successful career. The company has a great group of employees that will walk the extra mile for its peers. Ericsson is highly outcome based, so accountabilities are clear. However this is supported through strong reward and recognition, team building, etc. to strike a balance. Processes are a large part of Ericsson and the way of working. This is to ensure that Ericsson delivers products/services to the highest possible level. This can be a challenge for some people who like to "break the rules".

Pros

Competence development and career progression/opportunities

Cons

Dynamic workplace, hence suitable only to those who embrace change
