    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There's always opportunity to move around in the company, even globally. Very Swedish culture, personal development and growth encouraged. Great benefits and a rock-solid pension fund in place. You can count on a long and challenging career here! Ericsson has always managed to remain relevant, mainly because of the large patent portfolio and heavy SW R&D focus, primarily in the radio HW and 5G telecom fields.

    Cons

    Tends to focus on near-term profits for shareholder benefit, often implemented through frequent trimming of products/services as well as restructuring (the annual re-orgs do interfere in overall productivity).

    Pros

    Interesting work, company is moving forward in cloud native. Opportunity to work with new technologies. Great work-life balance, very flexible hours.

    Cons

    Processes are still slow, stuck using internal tools that are inferior to external ones. High-level management decisions sometime seem arbitrary. Office location far from downtown, poor transit options.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to learn. Team members are all respected and encouraged to contribute. Have learned more here that most other jobs combined.

    Cons

    Can be a little slow to move given the size.

    Advice to Management

    Help some of the employees to manage career path, not just the business folks. The tech teams need some career guidance as well.

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible time. A bit stable since the race to 5G.

    Cons

    No stock grant for new hires. Pay can be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Retention is a problem. The new young and good ones are more likely to leave within the first 2 to 5 years. Reintroduce incentives now the industry is booming.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A lot of training opportunities and good life and work balance. If you're fast and self-motivated learner, you will get lots of opportunities in the company.

    Cons

    Giant company so there's solo in different operations. Process is complicated and reaction is slow.
