    I worked at Ventyx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely deep pool of industry expert resources. Good team of market development personnel. Expansive solution set.

    Cons

    Integration between applications was underway when I left and company wisely saw need to push this initiative and also hone focus on strategic appliations within the portfolio. But in the meantime, this was somewhat of an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the key apps which play closest to the wheelhouse of ABB to take advantage of the huge strengths of the core business. Eg. Asset Health, Asset Management, SCADA, etc.

    I worked at Ventyx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No pros to speak of.

    Cons

    Ventyx is probably the most screwed up company I've ever had the displeasure to work for. I should have seen the writing on the wall when I asked about the DR plan and I was told "We don't need to worry about that because we're just a software dev company". No work/life balance. Cheap VERY cheap company. Do not expert any perks or bonuses, but do expect long hours without any gratitude. Churn and Burn attitude. I was told by the Director, and I quote " We churn and burn these IT guys, we're in Atlanta, we can throw a rock and hit another IT guy...dime a dozen". What an idiot. I started looking for a new job after that because I knew nothing would change.

    Advice to Management

    Management is clueless and always will be.

    I worked at Ventyx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. Some areas allow work from home. Benefits are above average.

    Cons

    Management changes a lot. A new CEO about every 2 years. Middle management gets changed up quite a bit and so plans are a little chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a plan. Don't change towards one direction and then back again a year later. Company needs a more consistent direction.

    I worked at Ventyx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits (good but expensive), PTO, opportunity to work from home, AWESOME severance package (quite possibly the best part of working there), some friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Everything else. No training, no shadowing, no encouragement whatsoever, I didn't see any possibility for career advancement or even career maintenance. Excessive bench time. Very hard to find someone to answer technical questions when they arise. No job stability - annual waves of layoffs. No one outside of the industry has any idea who Ventyx or ABB are - so it's not going to help you land your next job. Wait for your severance package and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the "Cons". Invest in your employees. Train and cross train them. If you do that, you won't have to hire, hire, hire, then fire, fire fire.

    I worked at Ventyx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good company going through changes where many employees are collateral damage and end up laid off while the talking heads are promising bright future. I was hoping to end my career with the company. The team I worked with was very collaborative, if you pull your weight you will be supported by team members.

    Cons

    Don't expect any formal training. Utilization of internal consultants is not well planned out.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more transparent with employees about their future prospects.

    I worked at Ventyx full-time

    Pros

    1) Flexible Work Schedule but typically this involved a lot of travel and more than a 40 hr work week.
    2) Nice Offices but commute could be difficult
    3) Worked with a number of great people.

    Cons

    1) Senior Management Turnover. Particularly at the CEO level.
    2) Shifting Directions without understanding full impacts
    3)Too many course resets, adjusts, resets, adjust
    4) Direction changes could be very reactive with an expectation that change would not impact operations or delivery.
    5) Company was built through acquisitions but the individual companies assimilated into a cohesive company

    Advice to Management

    1) Get appropriate/qualified senior management in place. Give them enough time to make the changes which will deliver the results ABB is looking to achieve.
    2) Reduce Management layers
    3) Be realistic about impacts of course changes
