    Pros

    - The technology this company create/sells is the only thing you could be interested to be here.
    - Pretty interesting projects. Technical complex project for people that want to learn
    - Company has no concurrence in NorthAmerica. No one produces what they produce (Chineese companies are banned from USA, so the LTE market is only for Ericsson)
    - On-site Gym, On-site restos, On-site Daycare (good but really trying to compensate the lack of life-balance and the "always-late" projects' culture)

    Cons

    The first and most dramatic CON is:
    - Lot of politics. Like the olf 80s style. Old fashion, at all levels. Really disgusting. Some BU more than others, but exagerated and toxic.
    - If your style is not to deal with politics, stay away. There are a lot of incompetent people that deals with politics and stay well in this company.

    The 2nd one:
    - Advise to new graduates and juniors: If you Join Ericsson, there is a possibility you cannot go out because your skills will be si tight Ericsson's product, and you will value zero in the job market after 5 years.
    So, if after 1-2 years you do not feel comfortable, two years is the max time to be here; if not your mobility will be in risk, and be forced to remain here forever... (no matter what)

    The 3rd one:
    - Internal process is an old and outdated project process that NO ONE follows.
    (20-something years old project process. Five CEO has passed. No one pushed to update the process -As IBM did with Lou Gestner in the 80s)

    All the rest, but not less important:

    - Sales teams in RNAM promess delivery times that are not real, therefore the service teams are forced to work long hours for long months because lack of synch

    - Project Markets around telco HW is fastly moving to standard Java/web development, therefore small, cheaper service companies could build services faster, cheaper than Ericsson. THis creates a business pressure to justify Ericsson's project costs to the customer, And makling harder to change the "project always late" culture (work work work and you have to forget your life

    - Culture in RNAM US is like US, dynamic and American way (right to the point, sell, sell, sell, make-it happen no matter what - zero life balance GOOD for the business. Bad for the persona life.

    Advice to Management

    - Management is competent, but the cannot do so much. The fact "Internal process is an old and outdated project process that NO ONE follows" making every project (EVERY) a chaos culture is a responsibility of CEO and headquarters in Sweden. Reason? NorthAmerican telco market is 100% Ericsson = Money!

    Chaning the process implies to re-structure the company, which means costly money an dimpact in customer projects.
