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

    Pros

    A leader. Great tech and services. Hell-bent on crushing competition. Decent work environment.

    Cons

    North American executive leadership will not allow employees to work from home. The company line is that employees need to "be in the office" to share, work as a team, and feed off of each other. That would be all well and good, but does that make a bit of sense if none of your team members are even in the same geographic area?? Even when they are, they call in to meetings rather than attend in person.

    The environment went from a few employees in an open environment with large desks and assigned storage to smaller desks and nearly double the employees in an area. Even directors are sitting on aisles!

    Yearly culling of employees leads to poor morale. Everyone knows that unless they are moving up, then the day will come where they will be moved out, regardless of contribution.

    No loyalty to employees.

    Poor work-life balance.

    HR serves the company, rarely the employee. They are also untouchable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to make an executive change.
