    Pros

    After being acquired by Ericsson 2+ years ago the best thing is the improved benefits - now includes fully paid family medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Steady force reductions used as a mechanism to meet corporate demands for profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less management by corporate edict from the home office and more attention to local culture would be an improvement.

    Continue to strengthen a formal training program for interns.

    Pros

    It is a great place to learn new stuff, especially for beginners. The training sessions conducted are very useful and keep us up to date with the new technologies.

    Cons

    Being a huge company, getting new projects becomes a tough task. At times, work - life balance is not maintained properly.

    Pros

    You have many opportunities for growth through internal webinar trainings, ericsson RNAM is very generous at offering on-the-job training through job shadowing. Ericsson strongly encourages working with mentors.

    Cons

    Many line managers can hold you back looking to further their personal goals and career. While at the executive level they offer many avenues for career growth and learning, there are line managers that prevent you from learning and moving and may put your very position at risk to further theirs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the career and learning culture within the company as a whole is great, there needs to be some kind of checks and balances that prevent line managers or local Directors from laying off your SME's and valuable employees whom have been with the company for 10+ years just to further their careers and keep other employees from jumping ahead of them. You have these people playing with others careers within RNAM and it must stop.

    Great atmosphere, culture

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide

    Pros

    Office culture is very collaborative. Lots of interaction and very diverse workplace. Good number of allowed absences and it did not feel as if we were always under strict time constraints on projects.

    Cons

    Overworked, no positive reinforcement. Salary was OK but was not enough to outweigh the previously mentioned cons. Values were sometimes inconsistent.
