    Pros

    Business culture is good, benefits is good, market share in telecom domain is the leader,

    Cons

    long history can also make the company inefficient, procedures are redundant sometimes, transformation is ongoing but slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It could be hard to develop new targeted area if the company is limited with the already built process. For new areas, the company got to follow new procedures.

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of room for career growth. There are several distinct practice areas, so the ability to find jobs in new practice areas adds a ton of room for horizontal growth.

    Cons

    Forced calibrated annual reviews make it very tough to stand out. Much of the recognition is based on political decisions and unevenly weighted across the organization. There is no good system in place to identify high performers. Career advancement responsibility is left to the candidate alone. This is not very efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more latitude within the organization for annual ratings. Find a good way to select high performers and place them in areas that need support.

    Pros

    For the most part people are very good, collaborative and professional. Excellent opportunity to learning through the internal online training course and instructure led. Both soft skills and technology.

    Cons

    Yearly layoffs are a bit discouraging and stressful. You are never quite sure where you will end up. Even if you are not layed off you may be moved to a different department/manager in a position that you may have not been interested...but it is better than the alternative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the cycle of laying off seasoned and knowledgeable employees every year.
