Not a good place for unbiased scientific research

Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Abbott Park, IL

Pros

Realized later that the only good thing was the pay... I am glad I negotiated well at the beginning and then when realized how bad a company it was to work for, I resigned.

Cons

Frequent restructuring; managers treating team members bad; inflexibility in giving time off due to family/leave issues; office politics taking over research...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The higher management should listen to the employees down in the hierarchy. Many things don't reach the upper management, if it does it reaches in a filtered way, so the upper management does not know what is going on in terms of the problems down there.

Doesn't Recommend

    Great experience. However, job security at this point is unstable.

    Pros

    Great benefits and very happy employees. Abbott treats its employees very well and there is fairly frequent communications throughout the company keeping people aware of business issues.

    Cons

    Very specific nature of work and there is a risk of being siloed within a department. Not much exposure beyond one function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve transparency across the entire business and increase communication from senior management. Focus on culture and improving the way employees interact across divisions.
