I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Big company with many outstanding benefits, good healthcare, 401K, profit sharing, pension plan, many minority programs.

Cons

often very political, slow moving, bureaucratic

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not to hit quotas when hiring, let the best person get the job. A few less VP's and some faster decisions for internal projects that require significant funding. Embrace IT solutions but don't leave buying decisions to IT and avoid creating solution islands.

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

    Pros

    Out of office all day. The friends you make during training become lifelong friends. Car allowance.

    Cons

    MICROMANAGEMENT. No future. Never know when you will be let go. No more access in doctors offices. Most doctors do not want you around. Busy work that has nothing to do with selling. Waiting in drug closets for an hour for a signature. Obamacare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have already killed this career.
