    Pros

    Ericsson has one of the best benefit packages compared to any industry. The company does a good job in establishing a multi-year vision, but keep in mind that the vision is for the company, not for the employees. The people working in Ericsson (US and Sweden) in the internal organizations are some of the best!

    Cons

    The customer units (aka sales teams) are some of the worst I have dealt with in 20+ years in the telecom industry. They do not care to follow any process which makes operations' job very difficult. The project management office leadership wants PM's to be strong, but Ericsson's own processes and the fact that the customer units are at the top of the decision tree force the PM into a conflicting and weaker position. Ericsson C-level management in the US are pushing PM's and operations into more of a sales-oriented mindset, though this conflicts with global processes and the customer units won't loosen their grip on the customer relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After seven years in the PMO, Ericsson US should take a hard look at how they want to be changing their process and do a better job of enabling employees to enact those changes. The sales teams still reign supreme when it comes to "running the business," and this does not work with trying to create operational efficiencies or trying to shift the whole organization to be more consultative toward customers.

    Pros

    Lifestyle (Work from home when needed). Relaxed pace. Good pay in the short term especially considering the relaxed pace of work. Global company so there are opportunities to work in other places in the long run (all over the world). Employee travel is prominent within the company..

    Cons

    Big big company so your career will progress slowly if you stay at the company. The President of the company has a "no re-hire" rule, which basically means if you leave voluntarily, they will never hire you back. Kind of a scare tactic.. I'd leave anyway of course.
