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

Pros

Highly organized with policies and procedures. Organizational hierarchy is well defined. Employee performance is reviewed every year. Continued education and certification is supported with company funding and time.

Cons

Hard to make a significant change to policy and procedures due to size of company. Massive layoffs. Used to be a stable place to grow a career but with spinning off pieces of the business and sending some divisions out of the country, many good people have lost their jobs.

Advice to Management

Micro management does prevail. Empower employees, you have some of the best.

    Well organized Pharma Company with opportunities for growth. Large corporate culture but with room for introduction of new ideas.

    Cons

    As a large company, innovation and creativity is stifled a bit.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good Pay Good Benefits, 401k, Pension Plan, vacation plan. Nice group of associates to work with.

    Cons

    Now they are only interested in the bottom dollar. They are outsourcing as much as possible out of the country or bringing in foreign workers. The management no longer cares about the employee's.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your associates. Quit over micromanaging the employee's and blame them for not doing their jobs. 90% or more of the job duties of my direct report were done by those who report to that person. It's no wonder why IT management at this company is so poor.
