I worked at ABB (United States) as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Involved internship where the senior employees helped me learn the processes of the company and gave me an insight into the field on engineering

Cons

Sometimes unstructed for interns since they haven't had much experience with interns in the Lewisburg branch but all the employees are very helpful and guiding

    I have been working at ABB (United States) as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    For me, it was being able to learn about Unix without knowing what it was at the time

    Cons

    There were no negative aspects that I had while employed by the company as a contract employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good learning experience for me and motivated me to want to take courses at HCC to learn about Linux as an OS and configuring Unix services with it

    Pros

    Large multinational well stablished company

    Cons

    Large multinational well stablished company, not employee oriented, lack of professionalism in their internal operations, too slow to make necessary changes, job descriptions on their post and what the job actually requires are two extremely different things. for example, project managers are expected to perform the functions of purchasing, accounts receivable, accounts payable, collections, process spare parts orders for "closed" projects, handle warranty claims for "closed" projects, etc., with no administrative support. In fact PMs are treated more like an account manager than project manager since by their project organization structure once a project is assigned to a PM it never goes away (never closes) until it is transferred to another PM. Otherwise you are expected to be responsible for that customers project even after delivery and acceptance by the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-organize PM function so that it really operates as a PM Organization add/reroute non project manager functions to the appropriate organization and level. Actually close out projects after acceptance by the customer and let a warranty group, or sales handle warranty issues and spare parts orders. More importantly have the functions report to a Project Director not a marketing director with no knowledge of project management.
