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

Pros

My boss was very supportive and gave me freedom to get my work done.

Cons

Internal computer support was always a challenge and needed to streamline how employees got assistance with getting computer basics set up as new employee. It took over 2 weeks to get access to my email and other necessary applications.

    I worked at Abbott Labs as an intern

    Pros

    Abbott has great benefits and a friendly culture. For this 12 week internship, one week was spent in Chicago meeting all the other interns and participating in a case competition while meeting important senior members at the company. It also has a large internship pool, and thus is a great place to look at when trying to gain some experience.

    Cons

    Despite having the title of "Engineering Intern", it really was more of a business internship. Thus it was hard to gain experience that was related to my major and I spent my time working in more of a supply chain role.

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great starter job and place to see politics in action. Decent benefits. Average vacation time.

    Cons

    Micro managed to the hilt by people who lack leadership and management skills. Management has no idea what they want but if your in the political circle you can do no wrong even if your a poor manager.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with the poor manager and non=productive people.
