    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are to die for.

    Cons

    The division that I worked for was new and wanted to do things differently than the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Should have hired people that ran services companies when you decided to go into services. This has now changed as of this summer. The company announced that it will close the services side and go back to telecom hardware.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Lay-offs, lay-offs, lay-offs. Need I say more..... You never really feel job security here.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers, not enough workers. Managers treat employees like mushrooms.......No communication, not commendation, low morale.

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

    Pros

    Ericsson has some of the best benefits out there. A company paid medical (for employee, and family) plan. Vision, Dental, 401k (100% match). More time off that I knew what to do with. I had 160 hours of just vacation, then there were floating holidays, sick time, family sick time. and personal days. Direct management was fantastic and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Ericsson can get a little arrogant when it comes to working with its customers (Mainly Sprint). There was defiantly a lack of work (that's why I was laid off).

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be: Try to be a better partner to your customer.
