Management philosophy about leadership is focused and preached, practice poor – you will excel with the right boss.

Pros

I found that you could take on as many challenges as you wanted and support from co-workers is great, but local and international

Cons

They keep re-cycling the old management, time for lots more new blood.

    I worked at ABB (United States)

    Pros

    A Global Company with opportunities to travel and interact with all cultures. If you are there long enough you will travel. Many long term employees are fiercely loyal and have never worked anywhere else, a pro and a con. The benefits are good, including adoption allowances not many companies have. Good bonus program once you reach the senior management levels.

    Cons

    Slow to respond to change, some managers believe employees are like pencils, keep using it by shaving more and more off until there's nothing left, then toss it. You need to be able to hold your own in office politics to get ahead. Advancement is sometimes based on your ability to work the system and personal grudges come into play if you've perceived to have crossed someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify, entire company is heavily affected by economy. But you look to be in a good spot once the economy does rebound, if you can last that long.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Bonus the past few years. Flexible time off. Company car can be used for personal use. Travel and see the country.

    Cons

    Lots of travel! Big corporation feel. Lots of shuffling of regions and management lately. Salary isn't where it should be compared to industry.
