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

    Pros

    I worked with people from all over the world which was a wonderfully enriching experience. The people I worked with were overachievers who valued the importance of a job well done. Advancement in Ericsson was attainable with initiative and drive.

    Cons

    Work/life balance was not possible. A 40-hour workweek was for the lower performers. I believe that the offices in other countries might have had better balance, but in the US the expectation was to work long days and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Consult the people who actually do the work before making promises to customers. The lowest bid is not the wisest decision. Remember that your employees are humans who not only need, but deserve to have a life outside of Ericsson.
