    Current Employee - Business Development Manager in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    International mobility, lots of possibilities and opportunities if you're motivated and have the dedication to bring your ideas through. Continuous improvement requirements. Compensation is good compared to the local averages and compared to the regional average wihtin the industry.

    Cons

    Demanding job timewise if you want to move ahead quickly, but that can be told from most of the jobs I believe.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, tons of potential travel and a feeling of family.

    Corporate structure did not allow for vertical movement and the plant was located in a "not so great" area of town.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By the time the numbers get to the top you must peel back the layers to get their accuracy.

    Current Employee - Quality Control Systems Engineer
    Current Employee - Quality Control Systems Engineer

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

    Pros

    Training program is moderately effective. Large company with potential positions in various locations. Expense accounts are given to all.

    Cons

    Management can be unprofessional and indirect. Communication is near nonexistent. The sales team oversells the limits of the team as a whole. You are also expected to relocate as needed. Hiring staff oversell and over-promise to new hires. Being a part of a large company, your opinions don't get heard and you get overlooked. Travel is unscheduled and can deter a functional lifestyle. Company programs, such as sales leads and service management, often reduce the quality of work you are able to provide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tour your region and have one to one conversations with your team members. By bringing a group, real concerns get hidden behind faux camaraderie.

    Pros

    Nothing is good here at all.

    Cons

    Management, co-workers, pay, being mistreated, overworked. I have never worked so hard and been treated this way. It's insulting. They do not care about employees. Awful place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greedy does not make a good company. It's just a matter of time before the customers figure out the scheme. You put a bad name in solar.
