I worked at Abbott Medical Optics full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good salary
Very good benefits
Excellent resources through Abbott Laboratories

Cons

Very politically complicated, even at non-management levels
Executive management too comfortable with status quo to encourage real change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time to hire new executive management, the existing old guard are too busy protecting their own personal interests to do what's best for the business. Change must be top down...

    Pros

    Competative salary and good benefits

    Cons

    There is a serious issue at the Senior management level that continue to result in the high employee turnover rate. Senior management has no experience in managing people, their staff or projects. They display very poor communication, no recognition for employee achievements or hard work and provide no support for their staff. Senior management here is known to have bad intentions, do not support their staff, and uses primative tactics that continue to demotivate, discourage and disrespect their employees which result in employees constantly looking for employment elsewhere and high turn over rate. They have high demands but have no clue to what is needed to sucessfully execute or complete priority projects. They are only out for themselves and are too busy playing the political game and will not hesitate to blame others when issues arises in efforts to deflect blame from themselves. They will make empty promises upon hire to reel you in the company such as balance of work and family life and flexible work hours however once you are there, everything changes. They openly display favortism, do not treat all their employees fairly, are not at all flexible with all of their staff and some are expected to work unreasonable work hours away from their family while others are not. Even then, you will not receive any appreciation or acknowledgement for your dilegence and commitment. The all around bad management here (at manager level & above) results in unhappy, highly stressed, frustrated, disgruntal employees which result in a lack of team efforts and many environmental issues. If you are thinking of joining their Quality Assurance department, please do your research and think twice. There are many good companies out there, unfortunately this is not one of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should all resign immediately to make room for more experienced, competent leaders who know how to motivate and manage people. Respect is earned not given based on your ranking or position title. Learn to treat your employees the way you would want to be treated.
