    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall it's a good company to work for. Good amount of training offered. Nice environment, comfortable office and good facilities.

    Cons

    Uneven teams make it hard to change from one team to other. Management could be improved. Should improve software development process.

    Advice to Management

    Teams don't have sense of working for same goal because management focus on each team result and it affects the resulting product.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, autonomy. Lots of different technologies in use.

    Cons

    Lots of different technologies in use but moving teams is completely out of your control so if you get stuck in one, tough. Layer and layers of management that may have little to no knowledge of the teams they are over. Lots of firefighting. Need to jump through hoops in order to get pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on all the layers, slow down and focus on quality.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Good training and education programs, well-known company, work-life balance, open for international professional

    Cons

    Too big, a lot of politic and bureaucracy. It may take years to achieve certain ranks. Due to the size, it's hard for manager to take care of all staffs

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with staff, not to rely heavily on tools and processes. Salary should be adjusted to align with market
