Sometimes can be that the bosses are very old, with the mind lost in the last century, so in this case i suggest to ask for change the department.

    Very large multi-national company. Easy to get lost in the mix.

    Pros

    Company provided training.
    Company car and cellular service depending on position.

    Cons

    Company car comes with several strings attached. You will need to keep your personal vehicle.
    Cellular service only applies to cheap phone ABB picks out. You can port your personal number over, but you won't get it back.
    Travel, travel, and more travel, but not to anywhere exciting or interesting.
    Pay, while initially might seem decent, you will quickly be asked to work more hours than initially stated while being paid for 40. Complain and get laid off.
    Company is too large, management too out of touch, in some cases your manager might be on the other side of the continent.
    Constant competition and exploitation of the different departments hurts the company as a whole. ABB's biggest competitor is ABB.

    Advice to Management

    Numbers aren't everything, listen to your employees. If a contract is underbid at the beginning don't take the profit out of your employee's pay.

    Pros

    It's a job with a decent salary. Annual bonuses. Convenient location off of freeway.

    Cons

    Management is very untrustworthy and rude to its employees. Unnecessary long hours when there is very little going on.

    Advice to Management

    Start trusting and empowering your employees rather than doubting them if you want to get quality work and production.
