Avoid if you can, there are many better places to spend the best part of your life

Pros

1. Reasonably flexible hours
2. Overall, the pressure level is lower than in many IT companies
3. Every now and then you might be allowed to work remote

Cons

You may like this place if:

1.You love to spend most of your waking hours either in a noisy "bullpen" in the hallway, or doubled-up in a room about the size of the bathroom and without windows
2. You enjoy explaining to people that the grass is green and the sky is blue - over and over again
3. You really love being kicked out (aka fired) without as much as a single word of explanation. Next day you would report to work - only to find out that you were fired the day before and nobody can tell you why

If the above sounds like your dream job - by all means. If not - there are few hundred companies in the vicinity, do yourself a favor and pick any of them instead.

    Pros

    Ericsson has many opportunities for advancement and for international travel. Compensation is good, too. Vacation is liberal.

    Cons

    There's the risk that your work might be transferred to a lower costs country. The decisions to do so seem totally financial based without regard to the strategic value of the talent pools affected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. There are a lot of great mangers at Ericsson.
