    I have been working at ABB (United States)

    Pros

    Still has European mentality - fair work hours, carryover vacation hours that can't be used, etc.
    Very clean & safe workplace
    Respectable employer

    Cons

    Hogan is starting to bring in GE ideas. Pulling employees from High cost countries - moving to LCC - may be good for short term stock gains, but not sure if it's good for the long haul.
    Raises are relatively flat - reduces incentive to produce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication within ABB
    Provide incentives to reduce similar product groups to reduce internal competition
    Improve literature of products to consumers - easier to implement, less complex
    Reduce workforce in Europe to LCC's slowly - could backkfire with blackballing from EU governements.

    I worked at ABB (United States) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good work-life balance, good co-workers, good facilities

    Cons

    The management was too lenient with project financial requirements and this later hurt the financial performance of the group I worked with.
