Pros

In the Telecommunication Industry, Ericsson is one of the big players.
In the US, they have a good presence as a Wireless technology vendor.

Cons

Health Benefits: Ericcson “pay” 100% of your health insurance benefits, but in reality, the Insurance Coverage that is negotiated is so bad that the list of “qualified” treatment are very limited, the worse I ever had in my entire career. I end up paying more in health care cost.
In the US, the culture of Innovation is horrible. They have the “Is not in my scope” mentality. The engineering and technical management culture in the US lacks energy.
Highly effective, competent and smart managers are very rare.
The official corporate policy is of total respect for people, professionalism, etc…but in the US, that is a big lie. Most of the managers do not act with respect and professionalism. They lie to the customers and treat people really bad.
Ericcson has this 10% reduction in work force policy every year…which is used by unscrupulous managers as a political tool to fire people they do not like.
I worked there for less than 1 year and could not wait to get out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to foster a culture of innovation, respect and professionalism...not just to put it on the Corporate Web page or in the recruiting brochures, but make it happen.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good management, excellent R&D to develop leading edge products.

    Cons

    Processes are a little cumbersome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis within the company to support front line employees (sales, product management, customer support). Becoming more lean and agile in the eyes of the customer will increase sales growth and customer satisfaction.
