    I worked at Abbott Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Corporate job with a lot of room to learn and grow,

    Cons

    Whenever competitors change the landscape; Abbott is not one to innovate when it comes to business practices or winning over customers at least in the LATAM market. There are double standards, when it comes to business practices, and there should be guidelines that apply to everyone regardless of market size.

    Advice to Management

    Improve business practices to compete with the other players in the lab ecosystem. Remember it is cheaper to maintain a customer than to win one over.

    I was recommended by a recruiter. I met the hiring manager for about an hour and I was selected to meet with the Regional Manger. I was flown down to LA for my second interview and I was hired shortly afterwards.
