Open environment but slow decision making

Current Employee - Engineer V

I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than a year

Pros

Open communication is promoted in the company. Also the engineers and managers have right balance of authority. It is one of the few tech giants in the US where managers don't have all the authority on how the projects are run. Company offers one of the best medical benefits in the industry.

Cons

Consensus is promoted (though situation is somewhat better in US operations than in Sweden) This slows down the decision making. Not always bad but many times it is tediously slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More or less on target so keep doing what is working.

    Pros

    Good benefits (medical, retirement, etc.). Strives for innovation and process improvement. Quickly adopts to changing technology and business environment (change management).

    Cons

    Because it is a huge company silos are inevitable. Initiatives are always underway to overcome this type of challenge. Change management communications can still be improved.

    Current Employee - Engineer III, Services Software in Plano, TX

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Awesome benefits
    Work with various customers with varied technologies

    Cons

    Lower management is powerless.
    Mid-management is focused not so much on business direction as numbers and meeting specific "targets", whether or not those targets are truly good for the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on innovation and work on developing employees into the resources required for growth! Don't focus so much on margins that you lose sight of how to make a new product!
