    Pros

    You have a great work life balance. People are good. Management is friendly and within reach. No overtime

    Cons

    You will have to work in 24*7 shifts. You will get very less increment even if you did quite well in full cycle and the increment period is one year. No good options to switch

    Advice to Management

    Give good increments to your employees

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits
    Modern office environments

    Cons

    The company has become too complicated and disorganized. Politics is very evident in all areas, most of the VP and their managers have insiders & clicks and don't care what you know only who you know. Most of these people grew up in the system from the lowest level to upper management only due to time, they lack education and critical thinking skills. There is no true leadership only lip service, you should not challenge their thinking the consequences are not favorable to your employment.

    Difficult to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to review the track record of their VP and upper managers. Most of these people are sitting in the wrong place they lack basic skills, I found most could not think critically nor could be trusted. They manipulate the tools to protect their bonus and don't care about the company's bottom line.
