    Pros

    Part of Abbott umbrella, potential for growth
    Good co workers

    Cons

    Hectic environment
    Revolving door mentality
    70% travel = 100% travel and when not traveling, you are stuck in the phone bank, answering panicked phone calls, no time for office work, expense reports, etc
    Long hours, low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employee more, think of them as resources to grow - not warm bodies to replace

    Pros

    Benefits are really good and employees are well taken care of through competitive benefits and excellent pension plan

    Cons

    Financially run company that makes decisions on numbers that do not align with operational objectives. Very risk adverse, behind competition in products/capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is not just providing vision and direction, but having expertise in areas that you lead and, if you don't do to career growth assignments, respecting expertise in your team and providing resources/ support to achieve the objectives
