Current Employee - Senior Mechanical Engineer in New Berlin, WI

I have been working at ABB (United States)

Pros

Still has European mentality - fair work hours, carryover vacation hours that can't be used, etc.
Very clean & safe workplace
Respectable employer

Cons

Hogan is starting to bring in GE ideas. Pulling employees from High cost countries - moving to LCC - may be good for short term stock gains, but not sure if it's good for the long haul.
Raises are relatively flat - reduces incentive to produce

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication within ABB
Provide incentives to reduce similar product groups to reduce internal competition
Improve literature of products to consumers - easier to implement, less complex
Reduce workforce in Europe to LCC's slowly - could backkfire with blackballing from EU governements.

    - Figure out ways to excite employees. Profit and order numbers do not motivate employees.
