    I worked at ABB Optical Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The workforce is great, people are kind. No weekend work.

    Cons

    Management doesn't want you thinking. They grade your performance purely by a checklist. No matter what else you do, if you missed a point on your checklist, that's what matters. 95% of my job was done through email, they graded me ONLY on my phone calls. I worked 1 on 1 with clients, their metrics measured my ability to treat them like strangers. That's why I say they expect robots. Don't think, say the magic words on the phone. Managers, don't think, check the boxes, don't worry about what was actually done. Upper management, don't think, just make forms to put check boxes on.

    I worked at ABB Optical Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They are always hiring new people

    Cons

    The entire exec team has changed and none of them has more than 2 years of background with the company or even how the company works. They have spent so much money on changes that they forget to actually pay a decent wage to their employees. Culture in the company is gone since Angel left. Execs stay in their offices and barely mingle with the "common folks" unless they are doing a Townhall or some other type of broadcasting
