    I have been working at Abbott

    Pros

    I think one gets a very good exposure to sales and marketing in India. The management is very friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    No con in particular. Expect things to be a bit bureaucratic. Other than that I dont see any con.

    Pros

    Company pays well for what is expected of you. They have excellent benefits. Have free fitness center at various locations which is a nice perk. Clean working environment.

    Cons

    Company is having some challenges recently so a lot of downsizing is going on. It's difficult to be promoted due to management that never moves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less outsourcing and more insourcing.
