Very mixed up, mixed bag. Depends greatly on your immediate colleagues.

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

Pros

Very good people, very good salary and very good benefits, good work/life balance, at least usually. Average bonus. No stock options. Quite interesting work in selected areas.

Cons

Overall structure is confusing- it is a Swedish company and real decisions are made there. But how these are interpreted and implemented worldwide vary widely. Old culture has trouble adapting, too rule centric and too too too slow. Non-coherent management decisions. Highly political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out how to combine good parts of the Swedish processes (good, thorough planning) with the good parts of the American processes (entreprenurial, risk taking, faster). Make IT work fast, ditch MS back office, fix internal telephone quality and make remote collaboration REALLY work. Tie research funding to product enhancements.
