    Pros

    Management rewards individual contributors and understands that the sum of the parts is greater than the value of the whole.

    Cons

    Sometimes unreasonable expectations when limited resources are provided...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward key contributors which will be the future of the organization...

    Pros

    great company and benefits. heading in the right direction

    Cons

    micromanaging, too many managers. direction gets lost in translation. There was no work life balance only for management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP micromanaging and trust your employees! Guarantee you will yield better results. Get on one accord stop delivering conflicting information. Hence the turnover

    I have been working at ABB Group full-time

    Pros

    It's a large company with room for movement. Feedback from employees on the business side is much better than on the internal shared services side.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking and no one is held accountable for their actions inactions. Upper management makes big promises to get you on board then never deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attenion. There are people that do no work and are just conduits.

    Good compensation, good morale, great opportunity to move and advance your career! Love it the same way 4 years later as I did the first day. Management is flexible with your personal events in life.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Need to condense meetings to once a week and not everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay involved with staffing.
