I worked at Sony Ericsson Mobile-Global

Pros

Something that entices everybody to come to work is the company's goal to always innovate and create some of the coolest products in the mobile industry. Working on such products for over a year before they hit the market is a very satisfying experience.

Most people at Sony Ericsson are nice to work with. The work place atmosphere is usually very relaxed. The benefits package offered by Sony Ericsson USA is usually top class.

Cons

Even though the benefits package is very good, the salary the regular employee draws (Sony Ericsson USA) is usually fairly low comparing other employers.

    Pros

    International working environment, very bright people, some of which want to make a difference, good home and work balance and lots of scope to do things and make things happen.

    Cons

    Since 2007 Sony Ericsson has been in a slow and continous decline which senior management have been unable to address, which in turn has lead to employee frustration and depair. The 'spark' has gone and the company appears to be drifting aimlessly, unfortunately companies that are going nowhere are normally heading for trouble. The total acquistion of Sony Ericsson by Sony is no guarantee for future success!

    In addition the work ethic of some elements of the site in Lund leave a lot to be desired, too many coffee breaks. leaving early and just coming to work purely for the money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is key for setting the tone and direction of the company, senior management need to step up and re-energize the company so that innovative and compelling consumer centric products can be delivered to the market. I don't believe the current leadership are capable of doing this!
