Pros

Great management team, great people,

Cons

politics between department, communication between mid level management from different department needs improvement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just look at the numbers and bars on the presentation slide prepared by a bunch of MBAs, understand the problem from a more techanical perspective is the key to continuous improvement

    Pros

    I enjoy working for Abbott Labs. There is plenty of room for advancement. Benefits are good and they are very friendly towards working mothers.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of lay-offs in the last few years in my division (ADD) and an attempt at a sell-off and now at Lake County, IL there is downsizing that threatens my position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While there is significant improvement in the level of communication from management, there is still many people I know that are waiting for the other shoe to drop.
