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 Management

May want to take claims of harassment more seriously.

    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 Management

    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.
