I worked at Abbott full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Large company with good benefits. Respected in the market place. Emphasis on diversity and academic background. Strategic decision making and fiscally conservative.

Cons

Promotion based on connections. Internally focused. Growth through acquisition. Outsourcing of positions on contract basis and continual layoffs to achieve higher profit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on long-term decision strategies and realize the impact of continual layoffs on employee morale. Focus on organic growth as well as acquisitions.

    I worked at Abbott as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    + Nice people
    +All inclusive living and some meals included
    +One of the best labs in the world for packaging

    Cons

    -Slow to start
    -low work load, although this may be simply an intern thing
    -slow to email back but that seems to be everywhere in the corporate world from what I've heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate more work to interns if possible.
    Organize more community events to get the interns together.
