I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Sound financial management. Consistent and high return on investments and strategic directions.

Cons

Too much time spent consensus building. One must become an expert in Swedish way of working to succeed.

Advice to Management

Mandatory performance management of bottom 10% is huge employee dissatisfier.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    OK Health Benefits, but poor Salary.

    Cons

    I worked in the NA headquarters, PLano Texas, depressing from the first day. I regretted joining this company a week into it. There is no guidance whatsoever, a mentor is assigned but most of them are preoccupied with their own work and have little interest in new employees. Asked to go through some documents and begin working. For a masters in Electrical Engineering from a top tier university, I took up the job as a systems integration engineer out of necessity. I quit the company 6 months in and am extremely happy working for a different company (I wont name the company but it is in the Forbes 25). I plead everyone looking for a job in Ericsson to avoid it like the plague.
