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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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.
