    Pros

    Great company very good for moving up the ladder. They really promote everyone to build their careers and further education.

    Cons

    Very corporate. This sometimes makes rules a little rigid. They don't always pay shop workers the best but it is a stable job with growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Let's try to be more flexible. Before we roll out high level strategies we need a plan to take it to all the BUs.

    I have been working at ABB full-time

    Pros

    It's a job with a paycheck

    Cons

    Horrible, horrible management with a minimum wage, hourly worker, union mindset. I am a professional with 30+ years of experience and am treated like a hourly worker. They want you in your desk from 8-5, no working from home, no flexibility - which in turn gets them NOTHING. Complete lack of engagement, no motivation to do more or deliver more. My manager constantly checks IM to make sure I am doing something at my desk. She gets notified when I log on in the morning and immediately pings me (I think to let me know she is "watching"). This is a nightmare - actively seeking other employment.
