    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, well-known name.
    Solid performance, stable if moderate growth.
    Cost of living north of Chicago is modest, a good place to raise a family.

    Cons

    Very large organization can make it hard to be recognized for contributions.
    Conglomerate business model is detracting from some traditional values of the company.

    Advice to Management

    You won't be able to buy all of the innovation for the future product pipeline. Invest in organic growth.

    Pros

    Abbott is a very organized company and has good values. This is a company that knows what they are doing and has the right mindset to succeed. As an intern I was exposed to the quality function of the business and the message was thoroughly relayed that the quality of the product that was being given to patients was of the utmost importance. The internship was a great experience and I enjoyed tremendously and loved the exposure to the healthcare industry.

    Cons

    The types of projects that were given to me were not directly related to my major (Biomedical Engineering) and therefore I found it difficult to become truly passionate about the work.
