    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Abbott Park, IL

    I worked at Abbott Labs

    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.

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