Power Systems Senior Engineer (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 10 December 2015
I have worked hydro, thermal and solar power plant projects with substations. The power projects of complex nature demands innovative solution. Engineering of the systems, design, layout, procurement, time schedule require team work with regular interface, coordination and attending many types of issues on daily basis. It is important and a must to assimilate the specifications, contractual scope, owner and consultant expectations in the design, procurement and execution. Not to forget the contract changes for additional cost and time for additional work. Job stress and multi tasking cooperation results in a project which becomes a mile stone and brings smile to all parties working for the project. Job in ABB is challenging as well as interesting and helpful for personal growth of technical knowledge.
In-house and external training, and regular reviews of projects, and lessons learn meetings on project completion are eye opener for team members.
Higher expectations, loss of focus on project management
QC Inspector / Maintenance Electrician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 November 2015
No room for advancement unless you're friends with someone high up. The pay was terrible, they treated their apprentices like garbage, and the working culture was very clique. you never felt secure here, as people who weren't in the "cool" crowd were constantly picked on and belittled. they promoted people with no industrial experience just because they were friends with the construction manager, that made for a lovely time, having someone boss you around and micromanage, that knew absolutely nothing about industrial electrical work.
ABB was a very good company to work for. Skills were reckognized and advancement was awarded.

Business Development/Sales (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 August 2015
Be very careful with this company, in particular which business unit you apply to. In general, I was incredibly surprised at the complete lack of integrity displayed by management and the company in general. They covered just about every type of management transgression I can think of (lying, bullying, berating, manipulation). At some point you have to think that this behaviour is driven from the top down.
Having said the above, there are some good people that work here so obviously everyones experience is not the same. But again, I am a 20 + year professional who has worked for several big corporations and I have never seen or witnessed the type of behaviour displayed by the management of this company.
