Thread regarding ABB layoffs

All around lack of good leadership

There is such a distinct lack of leadership qualities in some of the ABB management that I sometimes wonder how they got into the position. Some of the decisions they make are absolutely ridiculous and actually hindered productivity. In the end, we suffer the consequences of it all too often.

Many times we are unsure of which direction to take and what the expectations of our tasks are in that moment. A few of those in leadership roles consistently fail to communicate information needed to to be able to perform adequately due to spur of the moment changes.

It is this lack of strong leadership that makes me feel as if I am hitting my head against a cement wall.

A successful company requires excellent leadership. Bad leadership drives the best away and demoralises those that remain. Steer clear of ABB they are on a path of failure with leadership full of pension hungry dead wood and leftover trash from other failed organisations.

That is true for most companies. Most people go into management not because they have any "leadership" qualities but because they have nothing better or else to do. In many cases they are also the people with average or below average technical skills and know that management offers a way up the ladder.
