I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Competitive salary and great benefits combined with a caring attitude. The atmosphere appears to be one of promise and that you are a part of something great. That what this company does matters.

Cons

After all is said and done, employees just become a number when it comes to whether the company is competitive on a global scale. An American company that would outsource American jobs in a minute if it means being more profittable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Destroying American jobs to be more competitive is wrong. The company appears to be greedy when it comes to the profit margins. Asian markets are underinflated to get American companies to invest in the lower lifestyle to make higher profits.

    I worked at Abbott Labs as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Constant work. I was able to learn something new on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Many of the technologies used are only used at Abbott. When interviewing for positions outside of Abbott companies would ask why Abbott implemented their support desk in the way it is (or was set up during my tenure). Waukegan is a far distance.

    Pros

    Abbott is a great place work if you enjoy working on new technologies that will make a difference in people's lives. Abbott is full of top-notch talent, so there is plenty of opportunity to learn from your peers. The benefits and compensation are extremely generous as well.

    Cons

    Sometimes the shear size of Abbott gets in the way of progress due to the bureaucratic hoops one must jump through to accomplish certain tasks that should be trivial.
