    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.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Athlone

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

    Pros

    Great place to learn. Develop the correct way. Probably at one of the leading companies in introducing new technologies and doing things the correct standardized way

    Cons

    Engineers are better than the money they get paid for. Ericssons model seems to be get two years out of people and all the good engineers who are young with no family leave. RInse and repeat. There are very good engineers there who probably have been lured to stay by the great work life balance, low cost of living, good to bring up a family but a lot of really great engineers are lost because of they do not reward good engineers.
