    Former Employee - Engineering Manager in Plano, TX

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good vision for 2020 and supporting product and services portfolio. Good cash flow which can support this vision and take the company forward.

    Cons

    Very unstable leadership and organization constantly keep changing which is distracting to day to day work. Employees get frustrated with changes because such fast changes does not allow them to focus and produce positive results. Lots of politics and bit of a rigid culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ericsson policy should not support constant changes in leadership because it does not allow company/employees to focus on the goals. Constant reorganizations are not really needed to meet and exceed results.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some of the best benefits available...especially health.

    Cons

    Can be very "bureaucratic"...although a "large" company, some of the policies don't make a lot of sense for bottom line productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    California Contingency is too "political" in their decision making and self-promoting...

    Former Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in Durham, NC

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits better than average. Individual employees are valued. The company works with a wide variety of technologies and business models, and movement between departments is encouraged. Opportunites for overseas positions. Lots of travel.

    Cons

    Although Ericsson is a world-wide company, the mindset is definitely Swedish. This means that the most interesting work is reserved for workgroups in Sweden, and other groups are considered second-class. Typical politics and bureaucracy of a large company. Lots of travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a flatter management structure. I often felt that upper management had no idea what was happening in the rank-and-file, do to the proliferation of superfluous VP, Director, and Manager positions.
