    Pros

    Great customers across multiple industries
    Strong engineering capabilities
    Opportunity to be shown how unimportant it is to be an American employee
    It is so fun and productive to work through a completely new strategy every six months
    Annual decreases in compensation provide such a delightful challenge to manage

    Cons

    Management team does not understand the connection between performance and compensation
    Significant disconnect between stated strategies and management behavior
    Management promises big and utterly fails to deliver
    Customers really get fed up with failed services, failed support, and failed follow-through
    It is impossible to motivate local account managers when they know that their earned contracts and commissions will be taken away by some other ABB business unit

    Advice to Management

    Bring compensation in line with the market, quit treating your employees like they are disposable annoyances. Learn that people care about how you treat their colleagues because it is a clear indication of your integrity. When you agree to do something, then do it. Figure out that sales professionals expect to earn a reasonable living based on their contributions.
