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

Pros

Great colleagues, good resources, interesting projects. Good mix of biologics and small molecules.

Cons

Slow and very cautious to develop drug candidates (i.e., many worthy candidates never progress to clinical trials). Management can be parochial, and seems at times not to understand how to truly nurture a worldwide company.

    I worked at Abbott Labs as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work was great; people are really willing to help out and support you. They take really good care of their interns.

    Cons

    Too much networking expected. The internship program is great, but with the split, they don't seem sure on what to do with the full time offers. They also need more consistency across internship experiences in different groups.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent messaging is needed to interns before, during and after the internship.

    Very rewarding career until a reduction in force separated me from the company.

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work. Plenty of opportunities to use your skill set. Good compensation and benefits. Many different venues for potential employees.

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees. Management uses reduction in force to maintain profitability. Employees work in an environment of constant fear of losing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot sustain a business by getting rid of employees to increase profitability. Follow Deming's advice. Concentrate on quality and people and the profits will come.
