    Pros

    At ABS, you have an impact on the industry. The mission isn't just a plaque on the wall.. The Company truly is focused on 'promoting the security of life, property, and preserving the natural environment.' The Company has recognized it must move to a new level of performance within the marine/offshore industry. Change is needed as people and customers are looking for different things in ABS. For employees, ABS focuses on career path, career development, overseas assignments and work life balance. Included with that is a focus on innovation and providing new and timely work to the industry. It seems to be moving a a good direction. ABS is very ethical and holds a high standard in the industry. Company has a solid salary structure and it is a very stable work environment. More than not, there is a very good team attitude and friendly work environment. You see a lot of different things here early in your career at ABS. The company employs many nationalities and it's a nice culture.

    Cons

    While the new focus is innovative, there is still a very conservative work environment. It's a company with a long history and sometimes feels that way. The attitude and focus on 'change' may need to be communicated better. While stability for your job is nice, it can create an environment where people settle in and never push limits. But that's probably changing now. There can be the feeling that the Company is 'slow' to react to things. Being reactive to problems versus proactive in preventing them seems quite prevalent but there seems to be a genuine desire to address thaattitude

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to really continue developing people. Communicate better with all levels of employee. Identify, and communicate opportunities for new and interesting work.
