    I have been working at ABB Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    ABB is a true multinational and multicultural company with a strong integrity culture and a clear focus on technology and generating a profitable business. The company offers many opportunities to work in different businesses and to have a great international experience if one desires to. In general, there is a very healthy and positive company culture that overrides individual personalities.

    Cons

    As in any big company, some processes are complex, lengthy and frustrating. While some business units are global leaders in their market segment, others lag the competition and often suffer constant reorganizations. However, this just applies to a few specific business units and is not representative of the company as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some business units (especially in the Power Systems division) have been suffering constant changes in strategy. This adds uncertainty and makes it complicated for the teams to do business.

    I have been working at ABB Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, present in a lot of countries, brings chance to know many different cultures.

    Cons

    Too burocratic. Even though company's policy says managers can't block employees to move o other roles, the practice is that managers do that all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let professionals move around, loose them to other roles inside the company. Today many managers still make employees very unhappy, that end up leaving the company, instead of letting them take another opportunity inside ABB.
