I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lateral moves within Abbott are encouraged. Decent benefits. Many learning and development opportunities within the company. Flexible schedule.

Cons

Some departments are extremely bureaucratic and communications generally show style over substance. There is no empowerment at the grassroots level to improve processes. I question many of the hiring decisions.

Advice to Management

Hire all rounders instead of going for the extremes- e.g. technical specialists who don't work well in teams; or MBA grads who do not get their hands wet.

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits both tangible and intangible. Health and Retirement, of course. Lots of free benefits for family friendly activities like museums and the like.

    Cons

    Depend heavily on their reputation of the benefits package (which is not what it used to be) to be notoriously stingy with the salary.

    Advice to Management

    Working from home is a huge benefit that needs to be considered much more than it is now.


  2. They really spend alot of time developing their employees especially their interns. I love the company's culture!

    I have been working at Abbott Labs as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not too many companies will you be able to sit with executive leaders and be able to add so much value with your summer project as a intern.

    Cons

    Abbott is a great company that could possibly have improvements with systems.
