I worked at Abbott Labs as a contractor (more than a 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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on what a person can do, rather than who they know.
