I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very good people, very good salary and very good benefits, good work/life balance, at least usually. Average bonus. No stock options. Quite interesting work in selected areas.

Cons

Overall structure is confusing- it is a Swedish company and real decisions are made there. But how these are interpreted and implemented worldwide vary widely. Old culture has trouble adapting, too rule centric and too too too slow. Non-coherent management decisions. Highly political.

Advice to Management

Figure out how to combine good parts of the Swedish processes (good, thorough planning) with the good parts of the American processes (entreprenurial, risk taking, faster). Make IT work fast, ditch MS back office, fix internal telephone quality and make remote collaboration REALLY work. Tie research funding to product enhancements.

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

    Pros

    The management in my group is extremely supportive of employees and their careers. There are many opportunities to grow and I always feel like I'll be helped along the way. My colleagues are incredibly smart (and kind!) and I learn something new everyday. After hearing about our 2015 company goals today, I'm even more proud to be part of an innovative business with a bright future ahead.

    Plus, there are free drinks and snacks!

    Cons

    There is some resistance to change, but that's human nature in general.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some innovative, energized college grads with fresh ideas!
