I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits, immense portfolio and associated documentation, plenty of mobility internally, EMT seems to be making smart decisions

Cons

Too many silos for job functions, lots of processes, general lack of willingness to change the WOW (ways of working), decision making usually comes from sweden for just about everything, there is a perceived ceiling for management that requires a swedish last name, almost a mob type environment that requires a trip to the home land to get "made". This becomes clearly apparent when you consider how many other swedes you have encountered or met in any other telecom vendors or providers.

Advice to Management

A company can't survive when tasks are so segmented that it takes 5 people to complete simple objectives that one properly trained person should normally complete.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Infrastrucutre of the building. Good Health benefits. Good to start your career

    Cons

    Stressful work culture, lots of politics, growth is limited. dishonest managers and engineers. No work and life balance. When I saw company rating on this site it was surprising for me 3.6 -there is no way this company can get this ratings- some of the reviews are false and not genuine. They will make you work like dog. They layoff employees very often. Ericsson policy is to layoff bottom 10% people every year!!!. Almost all employees work more than 8 hours a days which includes part of the work from home after hours. DO NOT work for this company if you have any other options.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and truthful. Stop bribing money from consultants
