  5.  

    Great atmosphere and team cohesion, but lacks confidence in long term employee retainment

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Campuses are stacked with employee services and outreach programs. Business casual work attire and relaxed emphasis on how you look leads to more emphasis on how you perform.

    Cons

    Longevity of employee retainment, as layoffs are used too often for cost cutting measures. Promotions and salary increases are rare and small at best. Business practices do not mirror the same latest advancements as their products do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advantage of what new college graduates have to offer, because combining new business ideas with experienced workers would lead to better profits and increased employee morale.

    Pros

    Ericsson excellent benefits and good pay. The management is intensely competitive in their goals for market domination. There is a focus on collaboration.

    Cons

    The RNAM organization does an annual "refresh" in which ten percent of the work force is laid off every year. This is discouraging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to encourage employees with positive incentives, rather than negative ones. People respond to both, but they respond in the same manner in which they were encouraged.
