I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good Health benefits
Work life balance
PTO

Cons

Every year they layoff 10%, sometime if they don't make good profit they layoff two times a year, there is lot of politics. The Management does not care about the employees well being, they want to make huge profits.

I saw lot of new grads hired and getting layed off after one year. This is not a company where you can build your career with. Just get some experience and leave.

Advice to Management

Stop the layoff's, give credit to the hard working employees.

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

    Pros

    Government like job / benefits with excessive emphasis of following corporate processes and policies without taken into account the realities on ground.

    Cons

    No growth. Only people who say YES to every stricture emanating from top can survive and grow, others no matter how talented will rust in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Change the middle management as they are stifling the company, especially satellite offices which are far away from corporate hierarchy.
