very good working place with stimulating enviornment
It was amazing experience being a part of ABB student intern program ! I completely enjoyed the learning at India Corporate Research Center. Here I experienced, how scientists are putting their extra ordinary efforts to establish next generation technology which is not only most effective but also most advanced in terms of reduction in environmental impact.
I must admit that at ABB, the work culture is too good & people are very much helpful to solve any problem which an intern might face. Even during the project, conversation with other corporate research center (Switzerland,Germany) and valuable guidance of scientist working there has motivated me a lot for Research & Development. Within ABB GISL also, i interacted with different department people and got very good and helpful response. I attended 2 ABB talk at INCRC in which researchers used to give overall idea of their research and there will be a discussion on some topic. I would say it was one of the best experience at ABB. I liked library resources as well, i used to go with what are current trends in technology and how ABB is contributing in various areas. Along with ABB reviews, library is full worthy for subject books and technology magazines.
As an research intern, one can get all the resources needed to experiment, explore, enhance the cutting edge technology. The research team really creates best learning environment to contribute for state of the art technology, as well as motivates students in the res

A typical day starts at 8.30 am with meeting collegues whoo report to me and I assign the tasks to them with targets.Then I join production and Project Management meeting to check the tasks required by customers so that material required for those projects can be planned accordingly.Then is the meeting with SCM head of location to update him the activities that are done and will be achieved.After that meeting then it is time to meet the suppliers and understand the issus with them.After this is lunch time and then preparing SCM reports to be given to top Management.After this ,it is time to deal with coomodities,Negotiations ,completing urgent tasks and answeing to mails.The day ends at 6.00 pm,but usually I leave office by 8.00 p.m
Day to day thier is some thing new to learn out of these activities and some ideas spring up.
It is good to get guidance from management and get the work accomplished with co-workers.
The hardest part out of this is ending the days work.
All the work and each day isenjoyable part of life.
The day when a flash-over occurred in the FCMA(Flux compensating magnetic amplifier) panel, during the 7th trial run of HT motor. The most difficult part was to find the fault why it happened. The bypass vacuum cont actor was totally damaged. As a supervision trip relay was been provided then why it occurred. We inspected very well and lastly we found a bolt loose not well tightened in Y-phase. Thus the motor is of 280 kw so FCMA is provided. While starting the motor , the motor normally takes 6 or 7 times full load current when started directly on line, such high values of current have many implications. So,to eliminate harmful effects soft starters(FCMA) has been provided which reduces the starting current considerably and allow the motor to accelerate gradually. The soft starters provide gradual increase in voltage up to rated voltage ensuring even acceleration. It makes a sound and also vibrate. We assumed due to this vibration the bolt may have got loose. On that day i got a lesson,that any equipment needs maintenance after certain time and while maintenance it should be checked thoroughly.
A great name and a good brand to work under, ABB truly encourages talent. As a company it is good, but unfortunately I can't say the same for the work culture In India. It is a culture which is similar to a government organisation, where everybody addresses people above them as Sir or Madam. They believe that if you need some work done you will need to beg and beg and be at their beck and call, even if it is exactly what they are paid to do. More time is spent on politics and how to antagonize somebody or to get to the top. Most people are two-faced where they change their take on matters when the boss is present. There is zero tolerance for women and the men come from the mind-set that women are best suited for the kitchen and should not move up in their career.
However there are opportunities that come up to showcase your talent and great employee mobility, but it really depends on how well you network and being at the right time at the right place.
ConsToo much protocol, government hierarchy, zero tolerance to women
This particular division of ABB catered to the communication and protection of Electrical utilities over Power lines and also through Fiber Optic or Microwave based networks.
Communication systems were established between, say two distribution substations, making use of the connecting Power Line. A network using the power lines is thus established. ABB supplies state of art equipment for this purpose. Also the equipment were additionally providing protection of the lines, against say overload / underload and other different conditions.
This company having a total staff of around 150, comprising management and non management staff was a great place to work with. It was an extended family. Being from service department, the hardest part was to keep up to the customer demands for commissioning of their equipment, as it involved making visit all over the country. However visiting these places, also was fun, as you get to meet new people and also visit nearby places of interests.
Remaining away from family is one of the issue.

The duties of my most recent role as Strategic Business Development Manager varied in nature and focus throughout the course of each month. While researching and developing ways to ever increase sales of our electrical utility products for the renewable energy generation market was a prime responsibility, I also devoted considerable production to analyzing and presenting numerous marketing and engineering performance indicators to all functional departments within the Division. I also routinely made presentations, supplied reports, trained and evaluated personnel, and attended trade conferences.
Inasmuch as my in-house, as well as external, customers varied extensively in terms of personnel, requirements, and preferences, I'd learned to become very flexible in my work manner and perspectives to optimally accommodate individuals’ needs.
While it was the responsibility of my managers to call directions and thereby 'lead the way' toward particular goals, I quickly discovered that their effectiveness significantly improved as I became more adept at proactively interpreting their unspoken requests and consequently deliver more strategic results.
Many of my co-workers were new to their assignments, a situation often repeating throughout each year. Having served a number of varied roles in the past, I was generally able to supplement their training and develop tools and procedures to help them more quickly assimilate their responsibilities.

My work as technical support in ABB is balanced between office work and site work. I have learnt theory and practical of electrical power system in ABB. I appreciate the accessibility to the substation and panel builder factory to experience the real system of electrical power. The knowledge is enhanced with the theory of it which is vast in ABB intranet plus online training, webinar and online support which is available and updated from time to time. Being technical support, I also get the opportunity to have direct contact with protection relay specialist in ABB headquarters in Finland. This broadens my horizons and view on the work scope as a whole. ABB dedicates a specific role to a person so I focus only on protection relay at ABB. This gives me ample space to dig and deepen my knowledge in this area. ABB also comprise the whole scope of electrical power e.g automation, switchgear, LV product where I can always get in contact with peers who works in that team in ABB so I can know the inter-relation of my field to theirs. The hardest part of the job is to get approval of relay with utility like TNB and SEB which require a lots of things to do including documentations in such a long period of time. This will incur a lot of cost before we can actually start selling our product to the utility to earn profit.

ABB is a good company to work for - not a great one!
ABB is a large engineering and technical services company with world headquarters based in Zurich, Switzerland. ABB operates in most countries on Earth and employees about 150,000 employees. Even though ABB has significant operations in North America, there is a heavy European flavour to their corporate culture, so please be aware of this. When I worked in Canada, there was a marked downside to the Canadian leadership and it was because of this, I resigned. Most of that leadership ladder has since been fired or has resigned (mostly fired), so things have improved so I am told.
ABB had a matrix management structure which is typical of European companies, which means, in simple terms, that you can have two or more bosses, who can have conflicting agendas putting you in the middle to try to figure out who you want to please the most (you can never win with this deal, believe me). In my case, I had 14 Division Managers to report to across the top of the grid and a national executive on the vertical. Writing a strategic plan and trying to get buy-in from all stakeholders will try your patience to the max because most of these Divisional people will be a complete stranger to you when you start and will be an almost-complete stranger to you when you leave because you probably will never meet them in person (other than through electronic media). It can be a very lonely professional existence.
Because of poor decisions in the 1980's and 90's, ABB almost became insolvent. As such
The firsts thing you’ll notice when you start working here is the conditions of the inside.
Floors are a wreck, if you operate an order picker or reach truck you might as well go run a jackhammer. Sections of floor are busted down to the sand.
Rollers on modules were never repaired, racks are busted daily, every single rack leg is damaged, conveyor belts or ripped, dock doors left wide open.
Maintenance does absolutely nothing for 90% of the day. If you want to work maintenance this IS for you, you can sleep, play on your phone, eat snacks and get away with doing only the most trivial work for a day, maintenance has been moved to a back corner far away from everyone else now so it’s even better for them to catch sleep.
Management is a joke. Their only concern is orders going out, no matter how difficult it becomes to push them out. Their backwards ideas consistently delay other areas which later causes another delay in orders going out. They cannot keep employees at the shipping dock, if you go in as a order filler you are likely to end up on the shipping dock because everyone walked out. Shipping is back breaking because you HAVE to go fast and bend from line to floor, there is no way to ergonomically move product at that speed. They have NO pallet stands to relieve any strain. They exhaust you with no weekends off ever.
Supervisors and leads sit and stare at a monitor and their phones all day and their highest degree of work is getting on the radio to let you know it’s
Buena empresa que cuidava a sus trabajadores, en donde aprendí mucho más a trabajar en cadena de producción y en los almacenes de la fabrica.
ABB MOTORS era una multinacional de ámbito mundial, que en comparación con otras empresas, cuidaba aun más a sus trabajadores.
En ABB MOTORS, es donde completé bastante mi formación como operario de producción y sobretodo como operador logístico. Donde aprendí a manejar todos los tipos de carretillas, el puente grúa, el sistema de gestión erp sap, y la planificación de trabajo de los almacenes de ABB motors. ABB a mí me ha aportado mucho. El día a día en el trabajo era empezar a las 6h, ya a primera hora te venían los peones de las diferentes secciones de fabricación para pedir material, así durante toda la jornada. A las 8h de la mañana, ya empezaban a llegar los transportistas trayendo material para descargar. Se descargaba el material y se dejaba apilado en espera para verificar la calidad y posteriormente ubicarlo y plasmar la ubicación informáticamente.
Con la dirección y gerencia no había mucho contacto, cosa normal en una gran multinacional. De vez en cuando nos hacían charlas de como marchaba económicamente ABB motors.
Hice muchos amigos en esta empresa pero sobretodo estaba centrado en el trabajo.
La parte más difícil del trabajo era cuando había exceso de faena, ya que al estar en el turno de la mañana, se descargaba muchos camiones y había que alternarlo con las faenas de realización de pickings, material extra que pedían los peones de las secciones de producción, plasmar datos en SAP, ectra, aunque me adapte bastante bien a este ritmo de trabajo.
Lo que más
ProsHabía buena coordinación entre las diferentes secciones.
ConsLas instalaciones eran antiguas y estava pendiente de modernizarlas. El menú comedor era barato.
Loved the benefits, management caused a high turn over rate
Thomas & Betts is a plastic injection molding factory, I worked in an area refereed to as L cell, where we primarily made plastic electrical boxes. I would come into work, the team lead would tell me my assigned press and you get straight to work. With how they strive for a consistent quality of plastic, they only shut the press down when they absolutely need to, and you must thoroughly check the quality of every part. That didn't necessarily make the job difficult, just made it have a higher learning curve than most, being that we would rotate to a different press everyday, and they all have unique operations. Some presses were parts going straight out of the press, adding a upc, and boxing. Most involved the parts going into a screw setter, where different components are added to the parts. The screw setter added a lot of more complications to how quality can be sub par. I started the job with it having a high turn over rate, and it was that way throughout my experience there. Meaning, new people were constantly coming in and learning these presses, while being switched to a new one everyday they came in, to them eventually quitting out of frustration of constantly being criticized by management for not keeping up with regular employees. With me gaining knowledge of the various presses, and the high turn over rate, I became a permanent trainer. I enjoyed every aspect of training, specifically motivating new employees to not give up and always believe in themselves. Noticing
