    I have been working at Power-One full-time

    Pros

    The people and the product. Power one makes inverters that create renewable energy. That is impactful to our society and environment.

    Cons

    ABB purchased Power One. It is so big and so so stuck up from Zurich. Yes Power One had issues, they tried to grow fast - but for the right reasons. They didn't mistreat people they tried to capture the market probably too fast. But ABB is just big and slow and glass towers from Zurich have no Idea what to do. If they did their own inverter business would have taken off and they wouldn't need to purchase Power One to get into the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you try to grow too fast the wheels rattle and eventually fall of at 90 MPH.
