Good to their employees, but not-so-great salaries

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Guildford, England (UK)

ProsEricsson is very good to its people, as far as large companies go. They are flexible and it's quite easy to move within the company, often to different countries if one wants to. They are supportive in times of personal trouble, allowing flexible working, good support and so forth. This may be an artifact of their Swedish roots, but they are very good at treating their employees well.

ConsThe salaries tend to be a little on the low side for the industry. In addition, Ericsson is very process-driven. Simple things can sometimes be slow and painstaking. The process is important to ensure consistency, but can be sclerotic at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork to allow individual inventiveness and empowerment. Understand that process should streamline operations, but still allow for flexibility and innovation. When performing tasks, it should not be about satisfying the process; rather, the process should streamline and enable what needs to be done at all times.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
