    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at ABB Optical Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They are pretty good with recognizing their employees. They hand out rewards for those who stay with the company, hand out t-shirts to those who perform well, and provide pizza after a rough week.

    Cons

    They WILL overwork you. They give you the impression that you will only have to do overtime sometimes and for short periods of time. But for the whole year I worked there it was overtime all the time since they couldn’t retain their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on on the floor

    Pros

    - HR does its best to make it a fun place to work. - Pay is on par with larger org's in the area.

    Cons

    -Parking is tight here -Team's culture within IT is toxic. -Revolving door at all levels of the org. -No out of the box thinking. -Constant system down issues. -That's the way its always been mentality. -Teleworking only for the elite few. -Co-Workers talk negatively about one another behind each others back.

    Advice to Management

    -Grow a pair and put a stop to the BS. Don't be afraid to cut those that continue to hold back the org from moving forward even if it means it will hurt for a little. Allow the BS to continue and you'll never retain top talent. -Start embracing those that want to make things better / that clearly have the knowledge and experience to make it happen instead of catering to the cry babies just because they have seniority....

    Pros

    the only pro is the 401k. don't listen to these positive reviews, those are recruiters and human resources trying to not make the company seem not all that bad. If you work here you will quit within months or days.

    Cons

    You stand on your feet all day. Pay is cheap It's a lot of work Managers play favorites
