The company is too big for it's own good and individual performance is not valued above following inane corporate policy

Pros

Government like job / benefits with excessive emphasis of following corporate processes and policies without taken into account the realities on ground.

Cons

No growth. Only people who say YES to every stricture emanating from top can survive and grow, others no matter how talented will rust in this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the middle management as they are stifling the company, especially satellite offices which are far away from corporate hierarchy.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Traveled the world. Had great customers, wonderful colleagues. Very customer-centric organization.

    Cons

    Once a fun, productive environment and a sense of community--vanished when Angel Ruiz took the reins in North America. There's a very high chance that you will eventually be let go if you work for Ericsson in the U.S, even if you are a solid performer. No loyalty whatsoever. No trust in the employees. A strict "no working from home" policy for most. Backwards thinking for a technology company. Employee morale very low (as of 2010). Open office environment is executed terribly. A lot of people in small spaces (Plano office).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Is Angel still at the top in North America? Then replace him. Time for new blood and new ways of thinking.
