    Pros

    After being acquired by Ericsson 2+ years ago the best thing is the improved benefits - now includes fully paid family medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Steady force reductions used as a mechanism to meet corporate demands for profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less management by corporate edict from the home office and more attention to local culture would be an improvement.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generally fair, open-minded management. Global company with opportunity learn and grow. Dominant telecom player. Moving into datacom space. Honest.

    Cons

    You better be Swedish if you want significant opportunities. Ericsson, like most foreign based companies, don't understand Silicon Valley and Silicon Valley culture. So, if you want to work for Ericsson in the USA expect to conform to irrelevant policies, procedures, ideologies, etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think because you're a global company that your Swedish approach works well everywhere else in the world. Think global but act local.

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

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    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!
