    I worked at Abbott full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Have your reps stick to the script and stop the deceitful sales techniques.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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