    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time

    Pros

    Need to learn the business quickly to survive. This forces you to engage with stakeholders and earn their respect. Global presence with strong brand recognition. Slow and steady wins the race. Abbott is a legacy company with strong traditional values. Integrity is excellent. Trust Sr. Management to operate the business in prudent and pragmatic way.

    Cons

    Always chasing quick dollars. Afraid of taking calculated risk to get big rewards. Incremental change and not transformational. Communication from Sr. Management downward is often authoritative or non-existent. Lack of innovation. Focus instead on health care acquisition and M&A to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You only need to be successful 40% off the time to be a great hitter. Take calculated risks and break down division barriers. Operate as a single entity. Rename 'divisions' (implies separation) ... 'business component' (implies a unit of a whole).
