    Great Support and mentors to help you identify what is the best path for you

    Cons

    If you dont work to network you can get lost in the crowd. Intern conversion is a nightmare. Ericsson is very slow on conversions

    Continue to strengthen a formal training program for interns.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You have many opportunities for growth through internal webinar trainings, ericsson RNAM is very generous at offering on-the-job training through job shadowing. Ericsson strongly encourages working with mentors.

    Cons

    Many line managers can hold you back looking to further their personal goals and career. While at the executive level they offer many avenues for career growth and learning, there are line managers that prevent you from learning and moving and may put your very position at risk to further theirs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the career and learning culture within the company as a whole is great, there needs to be some kind of checks and balances that prevent line managers or local Directors from laying off your SME's and valuable employees whom have been with the company for 10+ years just to further their careers and keep other employees from jumping ahead of them. You have these people playing with others careers within RNAM and it must stop.

    Scarce upward movement if not connected with upper management which is 80% Indian, it helps to be one and be connected

    Pros

    Ericsson is solvent, the company has strong cash reserves and is not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Cons

    Extremely arrogant company, regularly lays people off and doesn't allow them to return (USA) if you quit. Compensation is on the low end, which ties to being worthy to just work at Ericsson. Lousy office environment, management leads by fear! "Do what we say or you'll be let go" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop only hiring Indian employees, promote based on merit and not who you know. Ease up on the arrogance!

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Ericsson has great benefits for employee (relocation benefit, health care, employee care etc.), especially if you are from a well-known school. Possibility of promotion very wide open for individual interpretation. Get to work at your own pace and great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Some bosses had his "favorites" and protected them at all costs, even if that meant violating the ethics or values of the company. For me, this was a very big turn-off.
