I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good health care benefits provided...ppo

Cons

Poor top down communications in policies. Too many people assuming authority which don't have it.

Advice to Management

Your management team in San Jose PDUIP is clueless as to who is valuable...which sites are valuable...and those which are not.

    Pros

    Stable to Very Stable. Excellent work/life balance, excellent health benefits, generous 401K match (7%) if you're interested in that sort of a thing.

    Cons

    If you're looking for creative work, don't come here (for software engineers). The kind of problems solved are in the areas of software packaging. This isn't an engineering run organization, but one run by product & project managers. ALL requirements are customer/marketing fed, and managers *never* miss schedules, regardless of product quality. Input from engineers is never considered, and you will spend your time on meeting stakeholder requirements, than on getting some actual work done.

    Advice to Management

    For executive management: Challenge your managers to work on quality projects. Change the culture from a marketing feeding requirements to requirements coming from below (engineers). Don't be obsessed with deadlines, they mean nothing if everyone is simply going to scrub the bugs to meet their goals. Promote visionaries, not operational people.
    Advice to Engineers: Don't be afraid to say no. And don't be afraid to seek out new areas to work on. If you don't challenge yourself, you aren't going anywhere.

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

    Pros

    Diverse environment, the pay and benefits are reasonable,and the opportunity to assist in other areas is strong.

    Cons

    Lack of a team influence between departments, clickish environments hurt moral, poor leadership due to inexperience, role ambiguity and lack of a structured career path if you are remote from your manager. Pay is not exactly average for a project coordinator, but it is reasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to become more diverse in their leadership and learn to trust those that have the experience and not just those they sit next to. Communication needs to be improved as assisting with developing a career path especially if your manager is located remotely.
