    A very conservative, but professional atmosphere

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Abbott Park, IL

    ProsThere are many resources (office equipment, space, technology) that allow you to do your job well. If you go above and beyond and have a strong relationship with upper management, you can get ahead.

    ConsIt is common for employees to hold endless amounts of meetings, which in more cases, do not really move us towards a goal. Very conservative (typical of industry) which holds back creativity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should be more comfortable not having the urge to hold meetings that provide no value.

    Overall the experience at Abbott was a good one. Great co workers, great products, good times. The product launches are

    Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Current Employee) Albuquerque, NM

    ProsThey keep you up to date with the latest and greatest in technological advances for pharmaceutical sales reps. The products were second to none.

    ConsThe company would do and have you say just about anything to convince physicians to use their products. I don't like the idea of pulling the wool over someone's eyes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave your reps stick to the script and stop the deceitful sales techniques.

    It was ok.

    Engineer (Current Employee) Princeton, NJ

    ProsThe benefits are reasonable. They encourage employee charitable giving with a generous match (although they only match company designated charitable organizations).

    ConsYou will get ahead in this organization by playing the game. Sales and marketing are treated like kings. Other functional areas, not so much.
