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

    Pros

    * Great opportunity to meet with customers and service providers around the world
    * It's Ericsson, a trusted partner for service providers
    * Flexible Working environment, not a problem being a remote employee
    * Great benefit package

    Cons

    * The restructuring is not going well, they are cutting key areas within the company
    * They are pulling back from manufacturing
    * Extreme pressure by the stockholders to turn the corner and become profitable again
    * More deep employee reductions looming in the future

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to your employees. In times of restructuring, the employees are your most valuable assets and during times of uncertainty, those that can find other jobs, will so talk to them and be honest with them about their future and where they fit into the big picture.
