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 ManagementAdvice

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!!!

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work Environment and good team to work with. Good exposure to the technologies currently present in the organization.

    Cons

    Not much exposure to the future opportunities with the organization. More clear documentation on the current working technologies could have been more helpful.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great depth and breadth in telecom, many talented people, opportunities all over the world if you are flexible, good internal mobility, good benefits,

    Cons

    units send work all over the world for cost reasons, a pain to get consensus and deliver, too silo-ed in the larger organizations, not very good at internal tools and information sharing,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break silo mentality between workgroups, continue with agile practices.
