    Pros

    Produces high quality networking products in a very hot market. Uses and constantly improves planning, building and release processes. Works to involve employees in cultural and interpersonal activities. Many engineers have been there for over 10 years. Stable.

    Cons

    Very large company. Many layers of management all over the world. International ownership affected by the value of the American dollar vs. Swedish money.

    Pros

    Ericsson has excellent benefits. You are surrounded by a very diverse community with very strong backgrounds in telecommunications. Depending on the team you work in, there are flexible work schedules available.

    Cons

    The industry is changing dramatically and Ericsson is trying to change and adapt; however, many of the moves are coming later than they should have and the time to change directions is longer than it can be. Additionally, pay increases are usually quite poor.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more entrepreneurial groups within the larger organization to more quickly adapt to the changing industry dynamic while aligning internal strategies better with the strategies communicated publicly.

    Pros

    Benefits and people, good work enviroment, work life balance, leadership, time off policies

    Cons

    lay-offs every year, raises hard to come by

    Advice to Management

    Quit with the lay-off, every year its the same thing, people worry about whether they will have a job or not. Not good for morale.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work globally. Lots of opportunities to work with the biggest operators in the world on interesting products.
    Great benefits program
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Pay increments and promotions are slow.
    Yearly firing in March in Region North America doesn't make sense. Companies that have 10% year on year lay offs usually pay a lot more than Ericsson. Ericsson will find it hard to attract talent since the reputation as a company that lays off regularly is getting around.
    Ericsson is slow to react in today's environment. However the messages coming from the upper management seems to indicate they are doing something about it.

  11. Very good overall

    Pros

    Healthy work environment with lots of support from management. Work is relevant to the state of the art in networking. This company has competitive benefits.

    Cons

    It's a very large organization. This sometimes leads to a feeling of being unimportant or isolated from other parts of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make sure all employees feel connected to the overall mission and vision of the organization. Make sure employees are able to grow in their careers.
