Great company to work for
Director GCC Service Suite (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC3 December 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed my time working at ABB. The people were focused and professional, the workplace pleasant and comfortable and the management committed to the success of the company with a good balance of "people" care.

For me the commute to the workplace became a burden and the hardest part of the job was being on-call 24x7.
Pros
Great people and flexible hours
Cons
Work life balance in my position was a concern

Answering phones and emails and at the same time meeting your project commitments is a big challenge. Add to this the pressure from production of any clarifications which you have to decide quickly.
Pros
Free gym
Cons
Long hours not encouraged but there are times you have to in order to meet your responsibilities.
