    I worked at ABB full-time

    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.

    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.
