    I worked at ABB full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    ABB fosters a collaborative, transparent workplace. My manager, In particular, was very interested in mentoring other coworkers. They have on site cafe and new LEAD office building.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, ABB is not hitting their numbers hence the reduction in their corporate workforce. Production workforce was not affected by this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe some thought should have been given before building a new building. Possibly, there would not have been a layout.
