    Pros

    Benefits and people, good work enviroment, work life balance, leadership, time off policies

    Cons

    lay-offs every year, raises hard to come by

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit with the lay-off, every year its the same thing, people worry about whether they will have a job or not. Not good for morale.

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

    Pros

    Healthy work environment with lots of support from management. Work is relevant to the state of the art in networking. This company has competitive benefits.

    Cons

    It's a very large organization. This sometimes leads to a feeling of being unimportant or isolated from other parts of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make sure all employees feel connected to the overall mission and vision of the organization. Make sure employees are able to grow in their careers.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work globally. Lots of opportunities to work with the biggest operators in the world on interesting products.
    Great benefits program
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Pay increments and promotions are slow.
    Yearly firing in March in Region North America doesn't make sense. Companies that have 10% year on year lay offs usually pay a lot more than Ericsson. Ericsson will find it hard to attract talent since the reputation as a company that lays off regularly is getting around.
    Ericsson is slow to react in today's environment. However the messages coming from the upper management seems to indicate they are doing something about it.

    Pros

    The vacation policy and Health benefits are pretty good. In addition to vacation days, you also get Personal Business days, Kin Care days, and even a Volunteer day.

    Cons

    Some of the management decisions are questionable. Often it doesn't seem like the left hand knows what the right hand is doing. They spent months and untold millions of dollars to turn a building with perfectly acceptable offices in the Piscataway complex into one with open seating in order to ostensibly consolidate its real estate footprint, but then ended up laying off a huge chunk of the staff before even moving them in.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good, the very best in a mature industry like telecom.

    Cons

    As telecom has become more software based, telecom vendors are increasingly competing with Indian IT companies and have adapted their culture. Ericsson's work culture has become like the work culture of Indian IT firms, Infosys or TCs or Wipro.
    Increasing preference to hire from outside than promoting from within. There is a mass lay-off every month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the diversity. Promote from within.
