Achievement begins with you because, at ABB, you are encouraged to move ahead.
I always wanted to work for a big international company. After getting my master’s, I looked for opportunities in the business-to-business environment because I thought it would be more interesting, more of a challenge. I really liked ABB from the start – not just the way it was set up and its products, but the bigger challenges the company was tackling – so I was very happy to get accepted as a graduate trainee.
That was less than two years ago, and now I’m a full-time product manager. The fact I have already had assignments in Japan and Norway says a lot about what’s important here: getting exposed to and learning about daily operations and customers, and of course building relationships that strengthen our business and drive our success. I work closely with a service network that consists of 100 service stations in 50 countries. My job stands or falls with teamwork. The work is much easier when I have a personal connection with my colleagues, no matter where they are. Turbocharging has a special environment, too, because a lot of people have worked here for quite some time. You really rely on everyone to share their personal insight and experience, and they do.
I enjoy the contact with our network, knowing we all have the same goal.
“Even at this level I can directly influence the products we offer customers.”
“The job is fast-paced, results-oriented and rewarding.”
