I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Demanding job that requires patients. The company is driven to ensure experience with its employees and continues to seek their involvement on all levels. They are keen to see how they transition in or out of the company. Truly most people here stay for the long run, 30+ years. It's a family.

Cons

Poor salary, slow professional growth, and absolutely terrible coffee. But they people are great, they have always been kind, people stay for a long time so things are slow to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it easier for people to move it up the professional ladder.

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice and some are good to be friends with. Set hours (and you can pick the set hours), weekends off. The pay.
    That about wraps the "pros" up.

    Cons

    Managers take credit for what their "team" does.
    Micromanaging is absolutely terrible. Its practically babysitting
    The technology there is really out of date. Windows XP? Really... It's 2012...
    Most people there only know how to do *their* job only. They don't know how to do anything else.
    Contractors getting treated very, very, poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with praises or rewards. Also don't forget the contractors, if it wasn't for them, your employees would have a ton more work NOT getting done. Update your technology. It's more efficient that way.
