    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time for 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.
