    Pros

    They invest in their people with training.
    Get to travel and work with people in other countries & cultures.
    Focused on sustainable environmental issues, open & diverse workplace.

    Cons

    Track record of M&A failures (Marconi, Redback).
    Use of clunky proprietary tools when OTS alternatives are available, e.g., bug tracking, video conferencing, document repository, collaboration, IT service, etc.
    Pattern of divesting right after a large investment. For example investing massively in Redback, only to shut it down, keeping a small piece of it in Budapest. For example Boulder and Warrendale.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ericsson is a great place to grow your career. They are working on cutting edge technology, have offices all over the world, and employ incredibly talented and passionate people who are great to work with. They move very fast, which can be tough for some, but those who are willing to move quickly can grow and build their skills in an accellerated and meaningful way.

    Cons

    Ericsson has unfortunately gone through some tough times in recent years, which has impacted the moral in some offices more than others. However, I think they are coming out of it just as strong as they were before.
