I have been working at Abbott Labs

Pros

profit sharing at the end of the year. There are some good people that work here. able to work from home.

Cons

Lack of opportunities to move out of field service position. Ever changing demands on employees. the adding of work without additional resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to promote from within. Stop trying to stretch your workers anymore then they already are. Give employees feedback on why they were not selected for a job.
