Do not work for AMO

Associate Medical Compliance Analyst (Former Employee)
Santa Ana, CA

I worked at Abbott Medical Optics

Prosit is a job, good benefits, other than that, I cannot think of any other reasons to work for AMO

ConsUnethical behavior by superiors, rude co-workers, selfish attitude of management, does not like giving you time off; Worked in the RA/Medical Compliance department and people are rude, and do not take responsibility for their work. Dominating attitude of do not take responsibility for your own self, but blame someone else. Had a supervisor who harassed me at home, and co-workers who were friendly one minute, but rude the next. I had ideas for workflow improvement and wanted to present my ideas to the VP of my group/department. Supervisor would not allow me to submit my thoughts to the VP. Employees seem more interested in their bonuses and merit increases than ethics. You are expected to work overtime, no questions asked. You are expected not to use your sick/vacation time. Around the holidays it becomes a race for who can get to their boss first to get the best days off. Then, you get the days you want off, but your co-workers do not, and they are rude to you for it because they have to take alternate days off. You should not have to compete for time off, nor be made to feel bad because you take time off. AMO quickly became an atmosphere of backstabbing, manipulative, people only interested in themselves. Stay away from AMO. Will never work there again. Salary was $40k/year

Advice to Senior Managementlisten to subordinates, give praise where it is due, stop blaming others for your own mistakes and incompetence, allow employees time off when they need it

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
