    I have been working at ABB as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very versatile, the program is set up to expose you to many different aspects of the way this division works. I work for power Systems. The employees are from various cultures and countries. Although it is an office space, it is a very dynamic work environment, as everyone is not afraid to ask questions and I never felt that I had to know everything. It is a welcoming environment and a productive one as well.

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a con, but it can be a stressful environment. You will be put on several projects at once and need to learn how to multitask. This is your responsibility as an employee, not a con of the company. Again, everyone is extremely helpful, so communicating is important and efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come in with an open mind set and be ready to learn.
