    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Well established, very good benefits, has a pension program

    Cons

    Quickly changing environment, losing it's patriarchal demeanor, benefits eroding over time, no clear leadership position in any market segment. Uses "stack ranking" to evaluate employees, starting to see the results of that impacting culture negatively.

    Advice to Management

    If you attempt to turn a large ship around too quickly, you'll tear the ship apart....

    Former Employee - Associate Systems Analyst in Abbott Park, IL

    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Amazing benefits (3 weeks vacation, profit sharing bonus, 401k match, health/vision/dental, education subsidy up to 7,000 per year, and many more including a pension) - 3% raise or so per year

    Cons

    - The transformation has made everything even more of a mess than it was before - Disorganized - Promotions and pay raises are done on a very specific schedule, and it is nearly impossible to get more than a 5% raise per promotion, which can take 2-3 years as it is
