    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..!

    Pros

    Free gym, relax. Not really 9-5. Though some boss wants it - enforced.

    Cons

    Not the best tools to work with. Working with internal tools rather than customers.

    Advice to Management

    I don't what to say. They follow the pyramid scheme. Loyalty > Talents. Is that better or worse. Idk.

    Pros

    Closest to telecoms if you are looking in that field
    Good package
    International

    Cons

    Very old mentality and structure
    Number of year = job stage, doesn't matter if you are skilful at what you do or not, promotions happen once every 5-7 years
    Don't pay very well
    No career advancement or future, you basically work for your pay-cheque and if you stay around for long enough you would get a handsome retirement
    Not much room for innovation
    Unqualified people in the wrong place so wrong decisions are made constantly

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and let go of the ancient structure and policies, it is what holding Ericsson back. The company needs a revamp!

  10. Not a bad company
