I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The company seems to care about and treat its employees well. Very flexible with working hours when needed. I was also in school for half my internship, so that really helped. Working from home is allowed for full time people when needed. I can't speak to the benefits, as I was a non-benefited intern.

Cons

The relationship with Sprint is very tenuous which is a big shadow that looms over the Overland Park office. There's often disconnects between what Sprint wants and what Ericsson does. I also think there's some fundamental inefficiencies in the relationship.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out a way to clean up the relationship with Sprint.

    Management is always on the move from one place to another its hard some times to get ahold of one.
