Competitive landscape, company could be better structured
When I started at ABB it was a top-heavy organization that has been stuck in a reorganization phase for 5+ years. It needs to emphasize local management structure rather than driven from top to bottom in bureaucracy.
Company is innovative, pay structure and benefits are fair.

Poorly managed and stressful
High stress environment, with very little work/life balance, focus was on making money and 60 hour work weeks were the norm.
Was expected to travel to job locations on weekends without compensation or time in lieu.

Possibly the worst HR department I have ever encountered, poorly managed overall with constant management shuffling.

Started off good but got progressively worse as time went on.
Only if you are starving and destitute, maybe not even then. Also should have eyes in the back of your head to watch for those knives. Having thick skin for the boss's belittling comments in front of the clients would help alot.
Pros
Work pretty much alone. Some supervisors are good, but they are the first to go...
Cons
Supervisors are generally only out for themselves, Throw workers under the bus to make themselves look better.

Environement syndiqué , la direction préconise l image à la réalité
Les processus bureaucratiques sont très lent . Les idéaux vantés par l entreprise ne se reflètent pas sur le plancher. La résolution d enjeux en matière de santé-sécurité est très lente est mal orientée .

Worked me till I broke
Management is horrible. They blame you for their mistakes. Toxic environment!!
Didn't care that everyone was leaving because of the new National OPS manager, I had employees tell me directly they would stay if he wasn't their boss.

If you take a sick day, everyone thinks you are faking and they will tell your customers and management

Worked in the field
Not a bad place, not a great place. Keeping us busy with work was not high on there priority list. Best part was working with guys that enjoyed the job and made the day go by fast.

No respect for employees
Possibly one of the worst places I've worked. They would do anything they could to save money. One of my coworkers got frost bite due to inadequate personal protective equipment.

Environnement stressant
Compagnie qui vas dans tout les sens et regroupe trop de mentalités d'entreprises différentes, à cause des acquisitions incessantes. Travail de re-stucturation constant et difficile à suivre.
