    Pros

    Strong company financially. History of growth. Great products (at least from our view)

    Cons

    New President bringing over upper management people from another division- does not understand our business day to day operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit all the micro-managing of every single task- it's tough out there right now. We are trying to close business in a very tough environment- no new products in years...high priced...

    Pros

    Excellent collaboration and support throughout the organization. Product is well respected and used throughout the healthcare market.

    Cons

    Organization is very reactive, has opted out of IDN and GPO agreements and has no real strategy to gain traction in these areas. Product pipeline is weak and specialists are asked to wear many hats. Not sure the ROI for the average rep is sufficient. Sales cycle is very long and one has to focus the attention of 3-4 different departments, work with a usually hostile lab and prove the benefit of changing their processes by implementing the APOC solution. Lots of PI and PM work, which most are not really trained to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop avoiding the hard conversations with the Lab. Develop an IDN strategy and start building some rapport and relationships. Train more on process improvement methodologies and project management skills. Stop being so reactive and develop an LRP.

    I worked at Abbott Point of Care as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    You don't have anyone micro managing you.
    Company host a lot of charity events and employ workshops.

    Cons

    Working with rude and ignorant women who have been with the company for 10, 15, 20 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want your temp employees that you've spent time training to stick around treat them with respect and teach your staff (in my case yourself as well) to be better host. This is your place of employment we (temps) are guest and already feel like outsiders.

    For a technology company they seem to be unable to launch any new products

    I have been working at Abbott Point of Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many employees are agreeable and help each other out. There is little training so making sure you are in with a good group of senior folks is critical to being successful. Really nice people.

    Cons

    The company just cant seem to meet any of the timelines to launch new products. It's frustrating to keep going around in circles. Management seems to be blindsided. It's great to talk about the future and another to make it happen. Contractors seem to be used as an economical approach to keeping costs down. These folks work twicw as hard and get little in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability is important. Connect with the people.

    Pros

    Ability to work independently, job parties and collaboration amongst employees and co-workers

    Cons

    unappreciated work ethic, unorganized, manager rarely knows what is going on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping on temporary employees instead of using them for temporary assignments only. The economy is hard and being promised a permanent job opportunity is uncalled for and very unprofessional.
