Good, but rigid policies. Too much bureaucracy

Treasury Coordinator (Current Employee)
Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

I have been working at ABB Group full-time for more than a year

ProsGood working environment, friendly colleagues. There's plenty of assistance that other functions will provide, without putting others down. Matrix structure of reporting, which allows individual to be able to cross learn other functions

ConsNeed more flexibility. Some managers are too bureaucratic, and really they should continue working in the 80s instead. Of 2013. Capable people will move on, while the level just below top management remains. Need to adhere more to rotation in2-3 years,for non business functions or people get entrenched

Advice to Senior ManagementGot to let go of some less efficient, overly paid managers: affects lower level employees. Take the pain and restructure

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
