    Pros

    Ericsson has a very diverse Culture, world wide positions, great support for charities. Goals are very clear and promote a feeling of teamwork within the entire complex.

    Cons

    As with any world wide company there is an overabundance of Bureaucracy and regional diosyncrasies to wade through but locally it is more stream lined.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I found the company to have a great working atmosphere, flexible, accommodating. The majority of my co-workers were qualified and team players.

    Cons

    As a corporation with a worldwide presence it made shifting the majority of work load to office locations outside US. Reducing need for local engineers.

    Pros

    The company has a great vision. The pay and vacation time is better than market average. There are tons of opportunities to grow within the company across diverse disciplines.

    Cons

    Senior Management teams are typically in Sweden making it somewhat hard to grow to those roles unless one is willing to move to Sweden.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The number one thing I look for in a company is the people I work with. If I'm surrounded by people who are honest, hard working professionals looking to learn something new every day, then I'm the happiest person. And Ericsson has those kinds of people. As for personal growth, I was honest with my manager in telling him I was looking for another job in the cyber security field. He contacted some people that he knew that might be able to help me out and recommended me. He also said if I find something else, he will not be upset and will understand. His main concern was for me to be successful.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons with this company except for a couple little ones. First, since I was just a contractor, I had to use my own car to travel. Yes, they paid for mileage, but it was still excessive wear and tear on my car. Secondly, I wish they had more opportunities in my area (DC Metro area). I would have been so happy to stay with this company.
