    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.

    Pros

    Large company so lots of opportunities and positions available through out the U.S and international countries.

    Cons

    Bad management and overall poor compensation. Takes a long time to advance in career due to older management set in their historic methods.

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

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with
    Industry leader

    Cons

    Due to outsourcing manufacturing to low cost countries, COPQ is eroding the bottom line and customer confidence.
    Everything is about cost savings and the bottom line. Job cuts are frequent even when the company as a whole is doing well.
    Work loads can be especially heavy and due to the job cuts, those left behind are burdened with even more work.
    They talk of work/life balance but depending on your position, this can be difficult to achieve and management doesn't care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the outsourcing of your manufacturing to low cost countries. Consider the COPQ and it's effect on the bottom line and customer satisfaction. Quit just talking about work/life balance and actually do something about it.

    The leaders are lost. Very hypocritical and back stabbing. Always with a fake smile. Not recommended to a honest and hard working person with a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your leaders or be more up to date on whats going on in the US.
