    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Large company, lots of resources at your disposal. People really seem to care about the outcome and the work that they do. Good managers and mostly good people to work with and work for.

    Cons

    Management drives value-less initiatives. Compensation doesn't keep up with the market. Always have to look over your shoulder because you never know when the next round of layoffs are. Tough place to be successful with all of the internal politics. Little to no growth potential - Career development is hard to come by unless you have an outstanding manager who at every turn is willing to stick his/her neck out for you, or you work in one of the target growth areas and can prove among the masses that you deserve a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the internal struggles. Identify career paths for employees so they know what there options are and how to get where they want to be.

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

    Pros

    Ericsson treats their people well with excellent salary, benefits and reasonably flexible working arrangements. Their US headquarters has many perks as well (treadmills for use while on conference calls, an extensive gym for working out and many other niceties).

    Cons

    Open plan work space can be distracting
    A common business strategy for Ericsson is to off-shore work to reduce costs.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that people are rarely interchangeable. Respect and value expertise and experience.
