Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

After we got a ping pong table (thanks to me) morale went up significantly. The best meetings were held in that room during games! It was a great team-building activity. Really nice people work there.

Cons

Management sucks. My colleague successfully undermined my efforts from the very beginning. I don't even think she knows her field, but she was the "permanent" employee so her viewpoint triumphed over mine. Management was clueless and ruthless. Very little competent leadership..

Advice to Management

Get a clue! Don't fire a person without warning. Many "slackers" are allowed to hang on and on while the more high-profile person is left unprotected. When an employee consistently has run-ins with other coworkers, GET A CLUE and get rid of that person!!!

    Pros

    Changes are good. It seems that company is working on strategy.

    Cons

    The communication process seems too mechanical and web based.

    Advice to Management

    Need more discussion from the local leaders and inform the changes to the employees. Also, the employees should get more information how they can participate in the fastest growing segments of the business.
