    I have been working at ABB (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people, but need training.

    Cons

    Comments are specific to the Houston office: Lack of work processes and quality system prevent personnel from successfully performing their jobs. Little to no oversight exists and management fails to acknowledge or own the problems. For example, when a former director tried to establish a PMO to resolve problems with a large international project, he was let go from his position.
    Employee turnover is high, especially within the PM ranks - mostly driven by dissatisfaction with upper management's failure to act.

    Redundancy and deputies needed to allow for time off without many interruptions for work related tasks on days off and preventing production delays.

    I have been working at ABB full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation. Friendly employees. Continuous training. Good benefits. Feeling of job security. Challenging role as a Project Manager but it keeps everyday new and different.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Unrealistic time schedules at times (which just comes as part of the territory of being in field service). Too much paperwork; practically have checklists for checklists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes. Keep meetings focused and within given time schedules.
