    Pros

    Worldwide company with generous benefits; excellent travel and vacation policies.

    High degree of turnover; pay increases were hard to come by. Personnel reviews are required to mark down categories so the employee doesn't score to high. No room for advancement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ABB (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable career start point to gain experience for future opportunities outside company.

    Cons

    Large employee turnover in U.S. operations. New European management team making questionable decisions with little communication to non European operations. $100M employee embezzlement in Korea reflection of incompetent management. Push by major investors to break company up into more manageable units probably best for employees & investors.

    Advice to Management

    Poll focus groups, customers and/or employees before making significant business decisions. Present management decisions unwinding gains made in U.S. by past management.
