    Pros

    great place to learn
    open environment
    mutual respect
    best medical and dental

    Cons

    fear of being laid off every year no matter how you perform or the company
    if you leave company you cant join back it is an HR policy

    Advice to Management

    Just think of the families of the people who worked here for their lives and they get laid off rather retirement is not a good practice. ERICSSON is the best company to work for. But just blindly following the policy of other companies will hurt in future may be not business wise. I love Ericsson, what an employee need is motivation; if lacking performance, dont just fire them all they need is motivation.
    Why Ericsson has become so cold blooded is out of my understanding.
    Same way if some one goes out cuase he/she was frustrated and now after realisation wanted to come back give them a chance...allow them to fight in competition...this guy will work extra hard now because he has reaslised the value of Ericsson......

    management is quite understandingtowards interns allowing them to learn things before implementing things. good recognition when you perform well on the tasks
