Decent company, management needs to keep younger talent

I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Abbott in general has good benefits. Compensation is relatively competitive... However, being in the SF Bay area their compensation is not nearly as competitive as it should be.

Cons

The culture at AH is very conservative. Young employees do not feel like they are being maximized to the fullest potential.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is very dissatisfying that upper management keeps outsourcing talent when great talent shines in Abbott. Management better start adapting to the new methodology or else this site will go down hill. You need to hire a lot more young professionals before everyone from retires.

    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.
