    Training
    Benefits
    Current technology (some units)
    Good ol' boys get ahead
    Reception area always looks nice

    Cons

    Reorganization Reorganization Reorganization
    High turn over, losing good people because forced layoffs
    WAY too many contractors, burn & churn
    Carrier projects no longer have in field CMS due to travel restrictions- but other groups travel excessively. Insane!
    Heavy middle management
    Sweden team not engaged with market areas

    Advice to Management

    Mandated performance reviews should be used in determining forced reductions.
    Yearly surveys on management need to be expanded and realistic, not what Sweden wants to hear.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Although there are times where you have no choice but to work late, a work life balance can be found for the most part.

    Cons

    Some manager do not support their team what so ever and show very little respect. The stringent rules placed on you do not apply to them in the slightest. Although the poor treatment of others is made aware, nothing is done to change it. So after a while you just clock in and clock out keeping to yourself. It becomes miserable. There is no room for advancement unless you are close friends with those cherry picking personnel.

    Advice to Management

    You should also learn to care about your employees which in turn would impact the delivery of great service to your customers. Respect should be a basic standard.
