    Pros

    Large European company with good benefits and socially responsible. Has lots of divisions and many financial pipelines. Company treats its employees well.

    Remove the layers of processes and concentrate on a bottom up revue of the organization.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Generally good people in the work force.

    The budget cutbacks taken by Ericsson means they are no longer investing or preparing their people to do their job correctly. The level of disorganization is unfortunate.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company offers competitive salary and good benefits

    Cons

    I felt there were many redundancies in my division, this is not only not productive but also hits the bottom line which in the mid and long term hurt morale and generate layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire people if you don't need them. I had other opportunities coming and I chose Ericsson, decision I now regret.
