Great benefits. Paternalistic culture. Couldn't change career path.

HR Manager (Former Employee) Abbott Park, IL

ProsTotal compensation was excellent, especially when you factor in retirement benefits. My 401K, after two years of working at Abbott, was better off than expected and in comparison to friends. I had good opportunities to work "above my pay grade" so long as I demonstrated exceptional performance. Got to work in Europe for a year and that experience was very well executed.

ConsI wanted to move from one function to another and despite networking and getting interviews and an offer, I was asked to stay in my current function. This was not aligned with my career interests.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf someone is a high performer, allow them to pursue the passion they identified at your company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    If You Don't Mind Leaving Massachusetts, Abbott Labs Could Be Great For You

    Senior Manufacturer (Former Employee) Worcester, MA

    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Don't require education to be respected at Abbott and in fact earlier you commence career and remain… Cons: Worcester site: Tolerant of harassment including physical harassment. High turnover rate for Manufacturing. Rather than mar PR image, employee bullying prominent to reduce Manufacturing staff. Reduction of Manufacturing… Advice to Senior Management: May want to take claims of harassment more seriously. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
