    I worked at Sony Ericsson Mobile-Global full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work environment was very positive, and I worked with some of the best people of my career. Teams felt like family, we worked hard, and were well compensated. Good pay, good benefits, and great projects.

    Cons

    It was challenging to work at a remote site (not Sweden or Japan), as they often made major decisions without sufficient input or regard to the impact to other sites.
