    I worked at Abbott Labs

    Pros

    Good salary and prestige. Very good segment to be in.

    Cons

    customers come last though customers are the whole point. Processes are not followed and middle management is smart but to scattered --they deal with all problems in a very similar manner blame them on employ performance instead of the real fault unclear proceedures and processes. Old world thinking pressure the employee and keep them under your thumb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer clear processes for employees to follow and follow-up on whether processes are working within a reasonable time frame. A company culture is very important not just talk but actual culture.

    Pros

    Competitive benefits; in line with many pharmaceutical companies

    Abbott Park, Chicago seems to be the "only" place to work.

    Consider more virtual positions across U.S. to complement Chicago-based staff.
