Reviews by Ericsson graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar3.8GradAustralia surveyed 21 graduates working at Ericsson. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 21 responses.
- Knowledge sharing, On-job training, Flexibility, High level of support from both colleagues and managers.
- The flexibility of working hours
- Work-Life Balance and flexibility suited to all working ages and gender.
- I'm learning so much, and work with excellent people who are very friendly, and will help you at the drop of a hat. There are some good benefits like having a big phone plan, discounts off movies, etc.
- Changes take a lot of time to implement
- The laptop you get isn't as good as you'd expect for an Telecommunications/IT company. It can be very frustrating to work with.
- Nothing particularly bad to report.
- The remunerations are slightly below the average.
- Most really technical work has been offshored.

Be yourself. It's not about "showing off" or being someone who you aren't. They will want you for who you are.
Very flexible for working hours and location
Salary is not great, and this is a known fact about this company. But this is compensated by the great and flexible working culture. Although I am not too concerned with the salary level at the moment, I am stuck at a graduate salary as I could not secure a permanent position due to circumstance.
Free dinners, great social initiatives.
Management in Melbourne are amazing. I feel like I can have lunch with the head of ANZA if I want to as he openly treats all his employees equally. Same as any other manager, whether it be my direct line manager in Digital Services, or the CFO or CMO, all are great managers and look after the team well.
As a graduate there was very little training provided to help us become familiar with soft skills or the technology that Ericsson has. I have only had one opportunity for in class formal training on new technology which was very good, but I could only spend 80% of my time there as project work was considered to take precedence.
I don't think it's very easy at Ericsson. There are a lot of internal certification that you need to do to move into a different job stage which hasn't been communicated as to how you can move up.
I am strongly against objective diversity, and Ericsson does a lot of it. Hiring a less qualified woman over a more qualified man simply due to gender is highly degrading and does not bring any benefit to the business as these people in the past have been more likely to leave due to boredom as the business is less suited to them. This is a fundamental flaw in many companies attempting to balance the gender gap. Higher people based on merit and competency! This should be priority 1! Other than this, other diversity factors seem to be treated correctly.
Ericsson puts a lot of focus on CSR initiatives and has committed to the The Global Goals established in the UN in 2015. Ericsson has a volunteer portal in which employees can access and utilise their one-day paid volunteer leave. I have personally worked on volunteering initiatives for Bikes4Life, donating and repairing bikes to be shipped over to impoverished countries as a means of transport. Ericsson also has a CSR pillar and working team established this year to continue to provide CSR opportunities and improvements to the Australian offices.
Offices are nice, nothing spectacular, but nice. The dress code is business casual/ smart casual, with casual Fridays. Dress code is not too much of an issue as long as its appropriate
Recycling efforts have been made but evidence of further effort is minimal around the office. Our recently established CSR pillar team has placed a greater focus on this so we should see an improvement on this in the coming yearJoin us to bookmark!
