    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Reasonable work-life balance. Confortable environment.

    Cons

    Poor or no recognition for excellent work. Very low salaries, cost of living in Ireland is very high and the salaries doesn't keep up. All the products have very complex implementation, commonly over-engineered. Poor reuse of industry standard technologies, it has a tendency of creating things from scratch involving a lot o people with no experience. Difficult to deal with many veteran staff, they have inflated egos and very frequently bad arguments, poor social skills, terrible leadership abilities. This includes senior engineers, master engineers and managers. Excess of bureaucracy for developing software. Agile is a facade that everyone pretends that is working fine.

    Advice to Management

    The turn over is extremely high because the company is terrible in recognizing people's work and potential. All the good employees that I know have left the company because of the low salary and the frustrated relationship with their line managers.
