Good but needs more improvement on processes and policies for an employee

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bangalore

I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than a year

ProsGood work life balance, timing.

ConsProcesses and policies need to be streamlined as employee has to find his / her way out of everything. Poor HR service and response rate for any queries from an employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf processes and policies could be streamlined taking employee into consideration, Ericsson could turn out to be a leader in the Bangalore market.

A big NO for freshers from Nit's or equivalent colleges

Graduate Engineer Trainee (Former Employee)
Calcutta

I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat work life balance dats it, will help if you want to prepare for CAT or other exams...

ConsQuite a few:
1. Salary growth is low. Starting pay package is less and you can FORGET the so called performance bonus you had been promised during campus recruitment... You will NOT get it.
2. The work what I was doing as a GET is the same work a guy with 7-8 years work experience will be doing.... In short there is practically no growth or change in responsibilities as you get promoted(Only the designation will change)
3. The entire work is just report generation from Internal tools and you will just work on Excel sheets full time.
4. If you have technical mindset and have been a high achiever you will feel claustrophobic here.
5. The senior guys working with you have only field engineering (FE)experience and for them joining Ericsson was a dream come true as they all used to work before in contract/ off role profiles.In short you will find them too dumb if you have a NIT/IIT back ground.
6. If u can maintain a good rapport with your manager then you could get a decent rating else he is definitely(I reemphasize DEFINITELY ) gonna screw you with the rating as they need to follow the BELL CURVE CONCEPT in ratings.
7.If you get allotted the night shift project then your life is pretty much screwed as the night shift is PERMANENT then onwards.Initially you will enjoy it(as college passout), but later on you will regret it
8.Switching options are pathetic.

Advice to Senior ManagementHad a very bitter experience with the management when I told them I need to resign as I got a better opportunity in a non telecom company. They were forcing me to sign a bond after I tendered my resignation which is unethical in my view.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
