    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    No pros, Ericsson was a leader in technology and now small companies are beating it because of por mid management decisions. if Ericsson wants to improve, they need to take out all the mid management and replace them with better folks

    Cons

    lots of traveling, no work life balance

    Advice to Management

    if it takes 6 months to take a simple internal hiring/promotion decision, then you shouldn't even take it. there are better things to focus on rather than wasting this much time.

    Ericsson had great people to work for and even better people to work with. Ericsson also had the best benefits I've ever had the opportunity to utilize.

    Pros

    This company takes good care of it's employees. The pay is good and the benefits are excellent! I always say, it's a great place to work, if you can keep your job. I worked for a company that outsourced their network to Ericsson to operate. I then became an Ericsson employee. When the contract ended, the new contract was very limited and there were several layoffs.

    Cons

    There are layoffs every few months.

    Advice to Management

    -NONE-

    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.
