I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

After we got a ping pong table (thanks to me) morale went up significantly. The best meetings were held in that room during games! It was a great team-building activity. Really nice people work there.

Cons

Management sucks. My colleague successfully undermined my efforts from the very beginning. I don't even think she knows her field, but she was the "permanent" employee so her viewpoint triumphed over mine. Management was clueless and ruthless. Very little competent leadership..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a clue! Don't fire a person without warning. Many "slackers" are allowed to hang on and on while the more high-profile person is left unprotected. When an employee consistently has run-ins with other coworkers, GET A CLUE and get rid of that person!!!

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Focus on the people in the Company. Have a very good CEO / leader!

    Cons

    The Culture is not the best... To much old school regarding leadership and structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gear up to year 2013 leadership such as Development Leadership and Transformational Leadership! Do not try to find people that is specialist (technician) and leader in the same person, leader is a ROLE!

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - A lot of opportunities
    - Stable working environment
    - Trainings paid by the company
    - Good salary
    - Great people to work with

    Cons

    - A big work volume
    - sometimes it is really easy to fix an issue but because of the procedures you have to wait as long as 2 weeks to fix it.
    - when there is an important decision to be made, management passes the responsibility to someone else.
    - I see Ericsson as a Giant with Feet of Clay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and more responsible managers.
