Former Employee - Field Engineer III in Orlando, FL

I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Exposure to to lots of people, networking, teaches you how to work under pressure, and how to work under bad boses. Teaches you time management.

Cons

No work/life balance if you are in the field. Lots of pressure. Unrealistic performance expectations. Reviews a joke, layoffs every year. Ericsson wants the employee to do all the right things, but in return does not reciprocate. They don't care about "people" , only production, and the moment you are no longer of use to them they invoke the "at will" clause and you're rudely out the door. 90% of training is online

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have your managers get the certifications you want your employees to get so they understand exactly whatthey are pressuring employees for. Ericsson is getting too big for it's britches. Keeps buying companies and laying off people. Your customers aren't happy and looking for how to get away from you.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Pretty decent pay and benefits. You don't pay for Health Insurance anymore which is a bonus in itself and the program is above average. Opportunities to advance within depends on who you rub shoulders with.

    Cons

    This company is the perfect example of the revolving door type of place to work. Many employees seem to be treated as throw-aways. HR is joke. They are unreliable and looking to protect the company's interest, not the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people more often and you might get better results at the end of the day. Don't be afraid to speak up to YOUR bosses.
