Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Wickliffe, OH
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Wickliffe, OH

I worked at ABB (United States) full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Generally good people to work with.

Cons

Every couple of years, regardless whether the company is performing well or not, the company goes through cost cutting eliminating jobs placing the work load on those remaining.
Can be very political. Divisions are very siloed and difficult to get agreement on change. Management values only the bottom line.

    I worked at ABB (United States) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salaries and retirement benefits

    Cons

    Many managers are not qualified to do their jobs. They sold the job to me with glossy terms and big ideas but once in the job I realized most people weren't qualified to do the jobs they were assigned and there was no accountability. It quickly became apparent that they would not be able to keep the promises they made tome about future advancements. Large, slow change,complex organization. May be a good place for engineers but not for corporate folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable for their jobs and follow through on promises you make.

    I have been working at ABB (United States) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits. Has great insurance and decent bonuses. It's got a roof that keeps the rain off my head and the cold winds at bay.

    Cons

    Constant overtime. Working the off shift it can be challenging to find somewhere decent to eat in the area. The canteen is closed for the off shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rotate shifts out on weekends so that they get at least one weekend off a month.
