Great workplace, but a false sense of security

Customer Project Manager II (Current Employee)
Plano, TX

ProsBest benefits in the world!
Work-life balance is great, depending on which department you're working.
Internal training is excellent, much of it is "free" to your department.

ConsCareer opportunities are posted (like every company), but there is no progression path other than just adding a II, III, or IV after your title. Seeking advanced positions is very difficult because the corporate requirements on training, experience, and required evaluations are very strict even though the company will hire externally for advanced positions without all the internal requirements.

Salary ranges for departments/jobs are hidden, so you cannot tell if a posted job is a promotional opportunity or not.

Your current manager must allow you to interview before you can apply for any internal job posting.

Advice to Senior ManagementThough management professes "Ericsson Business Process," the account teams don't follow it. Encourage them to get with the process and margins will increase.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
