    Health insurance benefits and 401k match

    Offshoring work is the norm and contracting work vs full time employees.

    Pros

    - Respect for individual
    - Culture of perseverance

    Cons

    Leadership had lost its way in trying to grow in multiple areas at a great cost to profitability with no significant results.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the new CEO is on a good course - please continue to focus on results. Identify leaders who have strong leadership and lesser "upward" management skills.

    Pros

    . It has strong corporate governance and a history of being able to adapt to changing markets. It has a presence in many countries and understands the need for diversity. Ericsson is a market leader, in fact likely the market leader, in telecoms equipment.

    Cons

    It also has problems that large companies tend to have. It will take you many years to advance, no matter how ambitious you are. It is led by large shareholders who have a very narrow idea of what modern business practices are, and a board that is mostly unable to understand disruptions like the internet, so it has a big problem innovating. Since it is the market leader it has a lot of competitive advantages, but those are mostly used to create a barrier to entry instead of innovating.

    Advice to Management

    The corporate culture has a bit of a Swedish bent, which isn't necessarily bad, but it is really conservative. If you're looking for fiercely competitive business practices with an impatient, and highly talented culture, you may want to look somewhere else. If you're looking for a solid performer, that dominates its market, has collegial atmostphere and room to grow, then you could do a whole lot worse than Ericsson.
