Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Abbott's mentality is that in order to grow, you must have worn every hat. Not every person is cut out for every role. Tap into your employees' strengths and take advantage of what they can do best and bring to the table
-Offer better chances for promotion outside of Headquarters

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with in the field

    Cons

    Not sure what happened in the home office. Big time lawsuit that they didn't divulge until after accepting offer. Charges were eventually cleared and then bought by co-sponsor Takeda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a plan.
