    Pros

    Salary & benefits are competiitive

    Cons

    Management tries to manage people by fear and intimidation. Very little communication from management. Management doesn't listen to ideas from employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to people. Good people have left because of the harsh management styles.

    I have been working at Abbott Labs (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Abbott is a great company that values their ability to retain their own employees and to promote from within

    Cons

    This division is struggling, not unlike a lot of vendors in this space, to maintain their market presence after a fast run up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deliver some innovation. Abbott has the gold standard platform for delivering real-time results...no new offerings on the test menu since 2006. Too long.
