I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Provides a lot of employee services; personal and career development. Opportunity for career growth if willing to work hard and in some cases relocate. Some of the best people work there and have for a long time. Quality products.

Cons

Slow to change, and not always to easy to get things done quickly. A policy for everything, makes it hard for people to make decisions on their own. New managers from the outside don't understand the business, long learning curve, making the same mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees more, the person closet to the problem is the closet to the solution.
