I worked at Abbott Vascular

Pros

Fairly easy work/life balance
Management is fairly easy to work with personality wise
Culture is fairly family oriented
Company is more stable than competitors

Cons

Professional development is extremely weak
Ability to move positions is restricted intentionally to maintain stability
Promotions happen far and few between

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve career development and opportunities to move to new roles. Many employees are looking to vacate the company in search of companies with more upward momentum or ability to rotate positions.

    Pros

    As a Temp:

    Competent peers (overall)
    (Some) very good people

    Ability to expand your horizons / pick up other projects

    Cons

    As a Temp:
    Treated as a temp / second class
    Undesirable people are kept rather than switched out
