    I have been working at ABB (United States) full-time for 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.

    I have been working at ABB (United States) full-time

    Pros

    None, it's a fine company if you enjoy staying in one place, doing stacks of simple work that you lack the resources to. There is no security in a college degree job where anyone with a high school degree could do the same work.

    Cons

    Although I've been told other locations are great, the florida locations are poorly structured for engineering. It seems that every level of engineering that is performed here is on a bare minimum level. Opportunities for growth are a distant dream. Goals to build new skills are avoided and training is limited to asking constantly and only receiving if free.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your going to have someone help, provide them with the right tools and knowledge. Don't throw things that are undefined, that lack resources, are missing information, and expect it to be a quick turnaround.

    I have been working at ABB (United States) full-time for 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.

    I worked at ABB (United States) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.
