    Pros

    Working in a high tech industry that contributes to peoples well being

    Cons

    Domestic US medical device development at Abbott has been in the process of being offshored for the last 10 years. Employees are worried about the longevity of their jobs and it shows in their attitiudes

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and show them that they are more important than pursuing a bottom line labor cost that is a small percentage of the COGS for the medical device being manufactured.


  2. Great benefits ... smaller sites have limited opportunities

    Pros

    Well, we have one of the better benefit and pension packages still around, and it seems to be well funded. It is also not uncommon for people to work here 20-30 years.

    Cons

    They have this amusing habit of repeating history. I've seen it happen several times in my dozen or so years with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Quit going in circles.
