    Pros

    My team has some really smart people. Our manager definitely has some awesome recruiting skills.
    We work in a particularly interesting growth field.
    We are allowed to work on our own projects.
    There is significant room for your ideas to have an impact.
    As an engineer I can come up with innovations and business leads (an pursue both of them)

    Cons

    Transition from Telecom to IT is taking a bit of time.
    There seems to be a large amount of older people at the company. I'm afraid they have gotten comfortable and are much less productive/innovative that the younger engineers.
    Still using come older technologies

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of old people and old technology.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to travel and work on projects internationally. Lots of scope to grow horizontally. Technically excellent, you work with lots of smart people.

    Cons

    Too much office politics and sometimes work environment can feel toxic. Reviews are not conducted well and you don't feel as if you've gotten a fair review. Not much growth potential vertically.

    Pros

    Large multi-national company. Pays well.

    Cons

    The telecommunications industry has consolidated down to 4 competitors, and will consolidate further. Ericsson needs to transform quickly to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace Net Neutrality.

    Lovely environment with a lot of training opportunities. Also growth path clearly defined and staff encouraged to improve themselves.

    The salary is not fantastic, but I guess the trainings make up for that.

    Pros

    good company, learned lot of things, new technologies, it s a ood company if you want to develop your self.

    Cons

    salary - probably lowest in the industry, tired management, if you oppose you are the next one to get fired, so make sure having a good relation with manager.

    Internal promotion process is difficult than getting a job in Microsoft, google or Apple. Good employees either do not care or are leaving company because of their policies.

    Management should get some lessons from top companies on how should treat employees, and improve their lots and lots of processes..!

    Company is spending so much time, money and resources in certification process, they could have invested money and time in some research projects to compete in this competitive environment.

     i wish they read and learn from this :-)

    Advice to Management

    Learn some thing from Apple, Google, facebook if you want to grow rather then stick to the old fashioned processes..! They do not have such processes but they are growing..!
