    Current Employee - Senior Mechanical Engineer in New Berlin, WI

    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.

    Pros

    - ABB products are involved in some of the most advanced projects around the world, from the largest cruise ships to the new Dallas Cowboys stadium.
    - Interesting work in a challenging field

    Cons

    - ABB in the US is an old school engineering company (limited flexibility and lower benefits)
    - Stronger management track than technical track
    - Too much focus on cost, very cost-centric management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Figure out ways to excite employees. Profit and order numbers do not motivate employees.
