    Pros

    Ericsson gives you opportunities to move within the company, and works hard to prevent employees getting bored or complacent. That is why many of my colleagues have more than 5 years with Ericsson.

    Cons

    The industry is in a tough time with traditional customers tightening their belts making it hard for Ericsson to maintain large margins. This means they have had to slim down as a company and had to make hard decisions and let people go. I think the letting people go happens a bit too often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on your people, competence management and job rotation, and don't keep losing good people in retrenchment periods.

    Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA

    Pros

    As an intern I worked on projects which were directly relevant to the business. My feedback was considered to be valid and sought after.
    People were very accomodating about traffic issues at the North San Jose location, and would allow for calling in to meetings during rush hour and either shifting schedules earlier or later to avoid traffic.

    Cons

    San Jose is not the headquarters, so there is some disconnect.
