    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 6 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.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    My team was amazing. Loads to learn from my senior developer and other team members. Unfortunately, my entire team got laid off so thats that. Good time off policy.

    Cons

    Management lacks overall vision. Reorgs happen with very high frequency. Most of the management has no idea what the developers/engineers/ML guys actually do and its relevance or importance. Team managers hold grudges against you if they have had bad blood with your previous managers. (happened to me when I was trying to move to a different team)

    Advice to Management

    Try to be an active participant in your employee's work and contribution. Take care of your employees in general. Avoid frequent layoffs and restructuring due to politics. It affects everyone.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, some efforts are made to promote more women into senior management, very diverse employee base

    Cons

    Too much process and governance. They are trying to eliminate some of the hassle, but they keep placing the wrong people in the wrong executive roles. Because of this, they are not able to simplify and increase their bottom line. A layoff can come at any time without any warning, if the corporate office decides to make changes on the fly.

      Pros

      Lots of PTO and free medical. With right management, you are given the freedom to inovate

      Cons

      Too much bureaucracy, but I guess that typical of a large company like this. I wish this company had a large role in contributing back to open source - given they are huge consumes of it.
