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

    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

    It was a very relaxed working atmosphere with many young interns. Very friendly people working there, both interns and full time employees.

    Pros

    Forward thinking, fostering ideas, not over bearing, they leave you alone. Great benefits but projects come and go and can be taxing somewhat during project duration.

    Cons

    Management slow to implement changes or sometimes they have too many company or regional initiatives meant to make somebody up the chain look great on resumes but lacking execution.

    Advice to Management

    Need to concentrate on core products and competency. Stick with initiatives and make them work.
