    Pros

    Ericsson is driving the development towards a networked society. It is fun to be part of that. Excellent benefits and high tempo.

    Cons

    As all publicly traded large companies there is to much short term focus which sometimes drives less than perfect behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be focused on change, continue to be ahead of the curve in terms of driving the networked society.

    Pros

    you have the ability to work remotely

    Cons

    management isn't as transparent as they should/could be. You are not given direct instructions (sometimes) so you will need to be extremely experienced so you know how to work independently.

    Pros

    As a European company, they had great Benefits (insurance, PTO, 401k…etc) compared to large US corporations. Change management and shuffling occur quite frequently here, so there are plenty of opportunities to spread your wings and become competent in another area if your current manager is open to it. AMAZING international opportunities if you're young, adventurous, and willing to travel.

    Cons

    Sometimes the shuffling around of resources occurs too much here. I believe in the year and a half I was there, we had 2 or 3 reorgs and I actually was never given the opportunity to try something new. I worked at Ericsson's North America Headquarters in Plano, Texas. Success really depends on the strength and characteristics of your individual manager. That's also true for new opportunities within; if your manager likes to hold on to his resources and not let you try something new, then you're stuck in his plan. I knew a manager that gave a poor recommendation for an internal position a coworker was applying for outside the current group. The job was virtually locked in and awarded to this individual. The manager did this just so that he could hold on to that vital resource holding his group together. This particular coworker was by far one of the brightest employees in the group. I knew the other hiring manager, so he filled me in on all these details. As this company is based in Sweden, they do like the fast track many of their top talent from Sweden via their North America HQ office in Plano. You'll notice that many mid tier and senior level management are from Sweden or Europe. If you're looking to advance to senior management here, the odds are stacked against you. I'm not trying to knock the company for that, but it is something to consider.

    Pros

    Excellent company overall. Global opportunities abound. Employees are provided with the tools and encouragement to grow. They even have an internal "Facebook" page.

    Cons

    Like most large corporations, the theory at the top needs to be brought down into the trenches. Middle Managers appear to be overburdened with "administrivia" that prevents them from really managing the business.

    Advice to Management

    It isn't possible to adopt the "Ma Bell", European Model to the US marketplace. The name recognition enjoyed offshore doesn't exist in the United States as yet. Much more flexibility and agility is necessary when dealing with the US Customer.
