    Pros

    The Pros that are listed below are based on work experience in Ericsson USA as a full time employee
    CANNOT comment on other Ericsson locations / regions

    Good Place to work if you would like to get a "Foot in the Door" in the field of Telecom
    Virtually every Operator in the US is their customer , overall you get a pretty good exposure
    Provide Training Opportunities both in class and on the field
    Local Project opportunities are also available provided you have good "CONNECTIONS" within the company
    Compensation and benefits are decent but a bit lower than what some competitors and operators offer
    Provide work visa and green card sponsorship if required

    Cons

    The Cons that are listed below are based on work experience in Ericsson USA as a full time employee. CANNOT comment on other Ericsson locations / regions

    Company prefers to hire lots of fresh grads and foreign workers at lower salaries

    As many users have mentioned in earlier reviews , there is ABSOLUTELY NO JOB STABILITY in the US offices. Layoffs are quite random, without any prior notice given to the employee. This is horror story for an employee working on a work permit. To make matters worse they notify US Immigration of the layoff within 2 weeks thereby making it harder for the employee to find another job elsewhere

    Regardless of the financial performance of the company there is an annual 10% REDUCTION IN WORKFORCE . This policy ONLY exists in Ericsson NORTH AMERICA . There is no other Ericsson Region in the WORLD that has such a policy .... Some employees in the company used to call this " WORKIN WITH A GUN TO THE HEAD " . Management calls this "HIGH PERFORMANCE CULTURE" :)

    Career Opportunities are based on 2 important factors : Your NATIONALITY and WHOM you know in the company :- Some people would call this Professional Nepotism . Although HR will vehemently deny this fact, regretfully this is the ground reality and unfortunately the bitter truth!!!!

    If you happen to be European, particularly Swedish you can have your job as long as you like !!! The career prospects for them are endless and sky is the limit ! There seems to be a completely different set of standards and guidelines put aside for them.

    Additionally having " BUDDIES " in management is an absolute requirement if you wish to stay on in the company

    Once you are in the company its quite tough to get a salary raise. So its imperative to negotiate a good salary upfront at the time of hire

    In conclusion , Ericsson North America should be viewed as Project Management company and NOT an Engineering company unlike the mothership i.e Ericsson Sweden . The only way an employee have longevity here is if by climbing up the Corporate ladder on the management path. Engineers are merely viewed as "TOOLS" to get the job done , and once the job is done , they are disposed off swiftly

    Advice to Management

    None . There is no point in advising.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, really neat team members, and a great work culture. They put a lot of care into the facility which makes it a pleasure to walk around. Such a diverse team to work with and everyone has something to contribute. I love the prestige and standards associated with the Ericsson name, and the flexible work hours are helpful for parents like me.

    Cons

    Many changes to keep up with. Being contract has its advantages but I would love to be a permanent employee here instead.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see Ericsson get involved in some sort of Corporate Challenge events and compete with other companies in the area. Also, I am a veteran and would like to see avenues on how I can serve and get involved with other veterans with the company.
