    leadership needs help, especially middle management, get the best out of people, especially people with different backgrounds and styles.

    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 as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice individuals working there made the three months worth it. Snacks provided, flexible hours and thoughtful receptionist. Development long-timers great to work with, but office environment is two cliques: Indian and East Asian. Cubicles divide them and I found it impossible to get my head around what the hell this office does for Ericsson other than write code for software I never got to see in action. Lots of disconnected projects add up to...what?

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. 80% or more are Indians and Asians. I was the only non-Asian, non-white contractor there for quite some time. Most everyone else is Indians or east Asian. No sense that what you are doing has any impact on the products of the company. Feels like you are isolated from the company and are just working in a satellite office with no sense of direction or purpose. Misdirected job titles and duties lead the contractors into the place where their job will change into something else. Half the office floor is half-finished, with boxes and old hardware just sitting around, good offices wasted and empty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What management? Sweden FEELS as far away as it is when you work at Ericsson in El Segundo. I think the El Segundo office of Ericsson needs to just be closed and save the money. Make the employees and developers aware of their product. Request visits from headquarters management in Sweden. Connect your employees with your product. SEEK DIVERSITY. Did I mention DIVERSITY?
