    Pros

    Transforming company that can give you a lot of opportunities with upcoming challenges.
    Can pay a lot for specific competences but once you are here 3% per year will be your raise.

    Cons

    Disconnection between middle management and upper management makes the company less efficient than it should.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more on training and lower the utilization targets....there is no way to evolve without time

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Plenty of training opportunities, excellent benefits. Ericsson also has a very good employee recognition program. Good severance package for employees that includes health and dental for up to year.

    Cons

    It's such a large company, that sometimes employees are shuffled around to different managers at the convenience of the company and there is little time to make a positive impression on new superiors.

    Advice to Management

    In Telecommunications, layoffs are inevitable when the market trends downward. One bit of advice would be for upper management to consider layoffs by seniority. Another bit of advice would be offer layoff recalls as the market trends back upward.

    Pros

    * Undoubtedly, the most elite supplier of mobile network equipment
    * Strongly committed to internal innovation and premium product development
    * Brilliant radio products made by extremely high caliber engineers
    * Emphasis on work/life balance is surprisingly sincere, even in the US

    Cons

    * Emphasis on professional services sometimes seems to dilute product impact
    * Approach to hedging technology risk sometimes confuses customers and the field
    * Compensation is often not in line with Ericsson's elite history and ambitions

    Advice to Management

    Generally speaking, Ericsson is exceptionally well managed. As a self serving observation, it would be very nice to see Ericsson embrace a more aggressive approach to talent acquisition and retention, especially when departure is primarily precipitated by compensation.
