I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I enjoyed the work and the dynamic nature of the business

Cons

Ericsson has good compensation (salary/benefits), but beyond that they cultivate a stressful environment for their employees. Their obsession with laying off "low performers" ensures fear and an unwillingness to share information. Often, the new people are left with no support and are the ones cut.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some training on how to manage people with respect.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best things about Ericsson are the great benefits, decent salary scale, overall positive work environment, and many competent and friendly colleagues from diverse backgrounds.

    Cons

    Cramped office space in North American HQ interferes with productivity. Training program largely focused on internal initiatives instead of bringing in outside experts. Extremely complex matrix organization combined with the Swedish consensus mentality makes for long meetings and extended time to reach decisions, ultimately stifling internal innovation and feeding office politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for ways to reorganize the company along functional lines and assess, objectively, deficiencies in process workflow.

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

    Pros

    Many opportunites for growth. Most everybody pulled their weight in an incredible team effort. Relatvely non-politcal.

    Cons

    I understand that the culture has changed over time. I loved the culture at Ericsson , at least through 2011. Lots of opportunities and team players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep showing your valuable employees how much you value them.
