    Pros

    Great company to work for. Most groups have good management with few exceptions. Multi-cultural environment.

    Cons

    Medium to low range of the salary. Very Swedish company with European ideals and mindsets. Sometimes it is difficult to work cross culturally.

    I worked at ABB full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Company. Lots of Opportunities. As you get into management it becomes a heavily matrixed organization. This works well for some, not so well for others. In my view, you have the opportunity to make it what you want. You have to be good at managing others expectations. If you are willing to travel, and work at a Global level the company will give you more responsibility. Pay is good.

    Cons

    There is always change in ABB. This can be a good thing if you want opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let the effort to centralize decisions take away from the autonomy that each business has to satisfy their own market.

    I have been working at ABB as an intern

    Pros

    They gave me actual responsibilities right off the bat and expected me to contribute just as much as any team member would

    Cons

    I was in a rotation and didn't like my second rotation as much as my first, but that was just because of the work I was doing

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary.

    Cons

    Very impersonal now a days. Can feel like just a number rather than a valuable resource to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of Human Resources and don't treat people like just a revenue source. Remember FSE's are the main contact to your customers.
