    I have been working at ABB full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company cares about its employees. The company offers a wide array of benefits, including vacation accruals from day one. The sense of community working at an ABB plant is phenomenal.

    Cons

    The salary is not outstanding, but still fairly good for an entry level position. Raises are done on a yearly basis for the whole company, which if you get hired at the wrong time of year can be really detrimental. However, even as one of these cases, this company still shines.

    I have been working at ABB full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    European company, so many great European benefits - almost 4 weeks paid vacation. It's cool to work for a diverse company. I am always meeting people from all over the world.

    Cons

    most locations are in the middle of nowhere, so hard to get good employees to stay. It really depends on your site. I've been to three different sites and each has a completely different culture.

    Advice to Management

    I am not sure what to say for this one. Keep up the good work? Management depends completley on site. Goals don't seem to be aligned from site to site.
