    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Reasonably flexible hours
    2. Overall, the pressure level is lower than in many IT companies
    3. Every now and then you might be allowed to work remote

    Cons

    You may like this place if:

    1.You love to spend most of your waking hours either in a noisy "bullpen" in the hallway, or doubled-up in a room about the size of the bathroom and without windows
    2. You enjoy explaining to people that the grass is green and the sky is blue - over and over again
    3. You really love being kicked out (aka fired) without as much as a single word of explanation. Next day you would report to work - only to find out that you were fired the day before and nobody can tell you why

    If the above sounds like your dream job - by all means. If not - there are few hundred companies in the vicinity, do yourself a favor and pick any of them instead.


  2. "Good company but very complex & highly political organization"

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

    Pros

    The best things about Ericsson are the great benefits, decent salary scale, overall positive work environment, and many competent and friendly colleagues from diverse backgrounds.

    Cons

    Cramped office space in North American HQ interferes with productivity. Training program largely focused on internal initiatives instead of bringing in outside experts. Extremely complex matrix organization combined with the Swedish consensus mentality makes for long meetings and extended time to reach decisions, ultimately stifling internal innovation and feeding office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to reorganize the company along functional lines and assess, objectively, deficiencies in process workflow.
