I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Abbott has generous benefits and a good work / life balance. Once you're "in" it's hard to be pushed out. Lots of opportunity for international travel (if that's your thing).

Cons

Little movement at the director + level since Sr leadership stay in same roles for a long time. People get comfortable and stop pushing for their best. Most IP has been outsourced so Abbott works more like a large contracting or VAR company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better career pathing.

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Abbott Labs as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, if you aren't contracted.

    Cons

    - Contract-to-hire never pans out and you do the same, if not, more work than actual employees.
    - Layoffs are way too frequent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans, we are not as disposable as you treat us.
