Good Company, Many Politics

Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Abbott Park, IL

Pros- Good Company name - looks good on resume.
- Good variability of experiences - management welcomes rotations through the company.

Cons-Very political. Everything is based on getting an advocate for yourself and networking excessively.
-Your experience will depend on your manager, but that is pretty standard.
-Rather conservative culture

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on what a person can do, rather than who they know.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Field Service Representative

    Field Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: Entry level opportunities available. Good non-salary benefits that seem to be above the industry average.… Cons: LOTS of reorganization of the division. Several times we would do a reorg just to do another one six months later when new managers… Advice to Senior Management: Some stability would be nice! No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
