    I worked at Abbott full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Resources are good, great training

    Cons

    Results are demanded at the cost of the customer. Often following company initiatives get an employees in trouble due to the message sent to the customer. A "Machavellian Society" where everyone wants to take the credit for others efforts. Often people are put in place because who they know or do, not what they know. Management is ready to label a person and falsely offer help to perpetuate their career.

    Pros

    Part of Abbott umbrella, potential for growth
    Good co workers

    Cons

    Hectic environment
    Revolving door mentality
    70% travel = 100% travel and when not traveling, you are stuck in the phone bank, answering panicked phone calls, no time for office work, expense reports, etc
    Long hours, low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employee more, think of them as resources to grow - not warm bodies to replace

    I worked at Abbott

    Pros

    It is an extremely warm place with few very good people around. Also, being an MNC, salaries may be reasonable.

    Cons

    Very few growth opportunities. Often gets lost in the MNC culture of pleasing global and regional bosses instead of focusing on the right set of areas which will help drive business.
