Great workplace, but a false sense of security

Pros

Best 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.

Cons

Career 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Diverse environment, the pay and benefits are reasonable,and the opportunity to assist in other areas is strong.

    Cons

    Lack of a team influence between departments, clickish environments hurt moral, poor leadership due to inexperience, role ambiguity and lack of a structured career path if you are remote from your manager. Pay is not exactly average for a project coordinator, but it is reasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to become more diverse in their leadership and learn to trust those that have the experience and not just those they sit next to. Communication needs to be improved as assisting with developing a career path especially if your manager is located remotely.

  2. Good company overall...but too many communication / Org issues compared to other large companies of similar size.

    Pros

    Good health care benefits provided...ppo

    Cons

    Poor top down communications in policies. Too many people assuming authority which don't have it.

    Advice to Management

    Your management team in San Jose PDUIP is clueless as to who is valuable...which sites are valuable...and those which are not.
