    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Probably the best perks as compared to the companies in bay area in terms of medical and 401k. Good place to work in terms of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Very few benefits outside of work. Office culture is good but lacks diversity. Work environment is little down.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ericsson, NA is a good company with a wide range of products and services. They pay competitively and offer a good compensation package. They have a good training program. They have a relaxed work environment with a lot of talented people to work with.

    Cons

    They may still have a lot of legacy systems to support which may not add new skills to their employers working on those products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The bonuses may not be great there. The office culture is not stressful and the work-life balance is pretty good.

    Former Employee - Field Technician in Reston, VA

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The number one thing I look for in a company is the people I work with. If I'm surrounded by people who are honest, hard working professionals looking to learn something new every day, then I'm the happiest person. And Ericsson has those kinds of people. As for personal growth, I was honest with my manager in telling him I was looking for another job in the cyber security field. He contacted some people that he knew that might be able to help me out and recommended me. He also said if I find something else, he will not be upset and will understand. His main concern was for me to be successful.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons with this company except for a couple little ones. First, since I was just a contractor, I had to use my own car to travel. Yes, they paid for mileage, but it was still excessive wear and tear on my car. Secondly, I wish they had more opportunities in my area (DC Metro area). I would have been so happy to stay with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!
