    Pros

    Ericsson has many opportunities for advancement and for international travel. Compensation is good, too. Vacation is liberal.

    Cons

    There's the risk that your work might be transferred to a lower costs country. The decisions to do so seem totally financial based without regard to the strategic value of the talent pools affected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. There are a lot of great mangers at Ericsson.

    Pros

    Benefits are great from their 100% covering health care cost, gracious vacation hours, education reimbursement, to a focus on quality of life.

    Cons

    Can be challenging to move up in some locations outside of areas such a Plano or Overland Park.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions can be challenging if you do not know the right people and the majority of the managed services within the North American market consist of former Sprint employees and can muffle the true Ericsson business model that may hinder customer growth. Instead of bending backwards for the customer platform/expectations we need to build an Ericsson platform that gives the customer a service they did not know they needed.

    Pros

    Great company with training, benefits and associates.

    Cons

    may be responsible for equipment not being delivered. When work got slow company had major layoff. was able to work as contractor without benefits. As a contractor was given training, but left with limited or no supervision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep full time workers more and longer. Wish equipment would be delivered on time.
