    Pros

    It is a really flexible environment. Lots of learning and growth opportunities if you work within the right group. Exposure to diverse group of clients.

    Cons

    Basically NO training. If you do not have any work experience, it is not a great place to work as you will be learning everything by yourself. HR is extremely inefficient and you have to resolve your own problems.

    Advice to Management

    Start a good training program. You are wasting money here.

    Pros

    Policies are good to some extent, if you are technical and willing to contribute without recognition and with less salary you have good chance of trying.Good for those beginning career. Good for contracting, contract will get extension for sure.

    Cons

    Management never cars about employee, for this company Human resource is not the main asset. don't join on H1B, they don't want to process GC for good employees.

    Advice to Management

    please remove all you middle management, who are from old school of factory, this is the quick and best solution.

    Pros

    Few good people

    Some WFH

    Pay is competitive

    Interesting domain

    Backed up by strong parent company through ABB

    Cons

    Extremely hostile and toxic work culture

    Company numbers are plummeting

    I am surprised to see none of the directors and VP have been let go who are the real culprits.

    These guys are completely brash and arrogant and un professional folks I have come across.They yell at people and cut people off.Want results but without understanding situation.Totally un-appreciative of the overworked staff.Complete air heads when it comes to processes.Stuck in 80s mode.

    If you are looking for fun work place, this is not it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people who do actual work.

    Get rid of VPs and Directors

    Pros

    Some good people exist in the company.

    Cons

    The company is run by a bunch of idiots. The EVP's rely on information from there VP's who are keeping themselves in power. The teams, clients, and ultimately the bottom line are all hurt by a group of managers that gut the resources of the company.

    Advice to Management

    To the EVP's....Let go of all of your VP's. You are relying on them to get you information and nothing is changing. Cutting costs is obviously one way to save the company, but by letting everyone go that is actually doing the work, you will be left with little to sell in the future, resources to do the work, burned out people who are left who were already stretched too thin.

    Pros

    Benefits are good here. You may have the opportunity to work from home but that depends on what group you're in. Its accepted in some groups others not so much. There are really good talented people here.

    Cons

    ABB Enterprise has a horrible reputation for sugar coating. They are really good at it. This place is the absolute worst. We literally had 3 CEO's in one year and they never addressed it. They laid off a number of employees, never addressed it. People misbehave and are VERY unprofessional, they don't address it. It's a very hostile environment and they allow it. You can't go to the group that should handle those types of issues but please don't waste your time; they will let you down. Trust me, they always "LOOK THE OTHER WAY" Its like they hide behind the parent company expecting all the bad things to go away because they have integrated. Do not be fooled, it's the same place. Same weak leadership and upper management that pride themselves on never addressing issues. They paint a picture of what this place should be and what they believe it to be but it's nothing like that. Employees are underappreciated. They pay well because they have to, no one wants to work here and they know it. If I had to guess I would honestly say majority of the employees here are miserable. This company doesn't know how to treat people nor does it know anything about the industry it's in. Be aware. No policies, no procedures, no morals or ethics. You be the judge.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter they aren't going to address it.

    Pros

    Depending on where you work within the company you can deal with some awesome people and can learn a lot to progress a career.

    Cons

    The con is the opposite of the pro. Depending on which part of the business you work in, you can find our self with negative and challenging people. There is a lot of potential with ABB but doesn't appear to be integrated well enough to drive success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep positive. Be a good communicator. Align with owners, ABB. If the integration of Ventyx with ABB's business and sales matures, that would be cool.

    Pros

    People you work with on a day-to-day basis are very nice and competent.

    Cons

    Long hours. People leaving the company are never replaced. Obsession with an "agile" methodology that is anything but. Dictate the technology first, then try to force the products to fit even when it's not appropriate for the requirements.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't want to lose every customer you have - start hiring enough people to fulfill their support requirements. Also, if you're truly "agile", then start valuing your people over the process.

    Pros

    Great opportunity in the utility industry. We used to have great people appreciated by our customers. With ABB knowledge and credibility we should be able to grow at the next level

    Cons

    No people management, they just want profit. I don't even remembers how many reductions in the work force occurred but probably one a month. It is managed as a private equity just to improve profitability while the revenue is falling

    Advice to Management

    Careful with the morale of your staff. You can not just continue to fire people. If you earn a decent salary they will replace you by another one at half the cost.

    Pros

    Ventyx have some great new products and much to offer in terms of enterprise software for the Power industry.

    Cons

    Because of Ventyx position within the Power business of ABB, they are unsuccessful with any market outside of Power.

    Advice to Management

    Move the Mincom mining business to ABB.

    I worked at Ventyx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was never micro-managed. Introduced to several cultures in the same industry. Working remotely from home when not traveling allowed me family time. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    When the company was bought by a much larger company, many policies changed and the work environment was never the same. Business services were eventually pushed out.

    Advice to Management

    There wasn't a sense of office culture since so many of us worked remotely.
