    I have been working at Ventyx full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Depending on where you work within the company you can deal with some awesome people and can learn a lot to progress a career.

    Cons

    The con is the opposite of the pro. Depending on which part of the business you work in, you can find our self with negative and challenging people. There is a lot of potential with ABB but doesn't appear to be integrated well enough to drive success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep positive. Be a good communicator. Align with owners, ABB. If the integration of Ventyx with ABB's business and sales matures, that would be cool.

    Pros

    Great opportunity in the utility industry. We used to have great people appreciated by our customers. With ABB knowledge and credibility we should be able to grow at the next level

    Cons

    No people management, they just want profit. I don't even remembers how many reductions in the work force occurred but probably one a month. It is managed as a private equity just to improve profitability while the revenue is falling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Careful with the morale of your staff. You can not just continue to fire people. If you earn a decent salary they will replace you by another one at half the cost.

    Pros

    People you work with on a day-to-day basis are very nice and competent.

    Cons

    Long hours. People leaving the company are never replaced. Obsession with an "agile" methodology that is anything but. Dictate the technology first, then try to force the products to fit even when it's not appropriate for the requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't want to lose every customer you have - start hiring enough people to fulfill their support requirements. Also, if you're truly "agile", then start valuing your people over the process.

    Pros

    Ventyx have some great new products and much to offer in terms of enterprise software for the Power industry.

    Cons

    Because of Ventyx position within the Power business of ABB, they are unsuccessful with any market outside of Power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move the Mincom mining business to ABB.

    I worked at Ventyx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was never micro-managed. Introduced to several cultures in the same industry. Working remotely from home when not traveling allowed me family time. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    When the company was bought by a much larger company, many policies changed and the work environment was never the same. Business services were eventually pushed out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There wasn't a sense of office culture since so many of us worked remotely.

    Pros

    Professional workspace, intelligent coworkers, strong industry.

    Cons

    It seems the company is in tumult over changes in leadership and operating in the red. Layoffs happened a few months back which made many people worried about job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't offer much, since the cons seem to stem from high-level management.

    I worked at Ventyx

    Pros

    Small teams with attentive first and often second level managers. Very intelligent and hard working people.

    Cons

    Upper level managers care mostly about keeping their jobs and profits. Company has gone through CEO like water. Company gives lip service to but does little to further career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually value employees and not treat them like disposable assets. Better transparency.

    Pros

    Experience. You will have the opportunity to do more work than you can handle, so take advantage, and boost that resume.

    Cons

    They need to hire more people for all of the work, and they do not value the employees they have.

    Pros

    Energetic company, very good people

    Cons

    Typical politics and industry-chasing; employees pushed to do too much with far too little, not compensated well enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell to your markets, support and go to bat for your people, and leave the "company man" attitude in the 1980s.
