I was always learning new things.

Because it is such a large company, change happened very slowly. Too much inter-departmental politics.

Advice to Management

Management needs to learn the value of a virtual job.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Really, none. Benefits and salary are better at almost any other competitor's business.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive, there is no functional Human Resource team and management is driven by local incentives without regard for employees and the customers. The environment is more of a "Good ol' boy" approach to opportunities. You are in or out depending on who you know, not your abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Move out of the 1950's. Manage and lead in today's business and focus on customer's not yourselves.
