Former Employee - Senior Manufacturer  in  Worcester, MA
Former Employee - Senior Manufacturer in Worcester, MA

Pros

Don't require education to be respected at Abbott and in fact earlier you commence career and remain with Abbott, better off you will be.

Non base pay benefits exceed many provided by other Massachusetts companies.

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 staff and overtime to show management's ability to reduce labor costs has caused a cessation in cross training outside the plant hindering career growth for those desiring to move outside the plant environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

May want to take claims of harassment more seriously.

    seek advise of field leardership and market participants. those closest to customer have good advice to share.
