Pros

Working at ABB US Corporate Research was great. The research was all geared towards improving the products developed by ABB and the people were great to work with. It's an international company, so collaboration with people in other countries was encouraged and often made for better products.

Cons

There could be more grooming of technical researchers into research managers.

Advice to Management

The treatment of technical professionals has been good...It'll be good to see more (software) technical researchers given the opportunity to lead.

    Pros

    Big company with lots of opportunities Corporate culture is very accommodating Pay and benefits are above par Depending on your area of work, there is a good work life balance. Most of the divisions in the company follow Flex-time. Actively involved in charity/philanthrophy within the community

    Cons

    I cant say these as the negatives of the company. But these are definitely the negatives of the Wickliffe, OH leadership. The top leadership seemed indecisive - in the three years that I worked there, they "changed" their "market and business strategy" three times. Every year it was introduced as the best thing for the company going forward. It seemed like the management are playing the trial-and-error game. Because of this, lot of talented ppl in the Sales force left the company to work for competitors. The inevitable layoffs could have been handled better. When I was laid off, there were openings for a similar position in other parts of the USA. Instead of applying as an internal candidate or an internal interview for a transfer, I was asked to first wait for my last day and then apply as an external candidate. I am sure others had a similar experience.

    Advice to Management

    It would help to have a good well-thought strategic vision and stick to it. I understand that the environment that we do business in is ever changing but that does not mean we keep "reorganizing" every year. If you implement a process or a change, give it some time to sink the roots. The cleveland office has good managers but not a capable leader!!!!!!!
