    -With the recent Freestyle Libre FDA approval, the company has a very bright future, and ADC has a lot of visibility up to the top of Abbott
    -Strong leadership and growth
    -Plenty of office space between the two buildings in Alameda (which are across the street from each other), with multiple commuting options including BART and the SF Bay Ferry

    Cons

    -Nothing major comes to mind

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Great product in Freestyle Libre
    - some great managers and fellow employees
    - part of Abbott, so options elsewhere

    Cons

    - scapegoating, political, CYA culture
    - low employee morale
    - high workload and little respect for work life balance
    - petty cost cutting whilst wasting millions
    - BS management double speak around "scary good" and "blue ocean strategy" that most people don't understand and is inconsistent with general micro-management
    - most employees increasingly marginalized at the expense of few so called high performers, creating an unjust, uncooperative and resentful atmosphere
    - very little opportunities for career progression
    - management look after themselves well with perks, fancy hotels and unncessary overseas travel
    - disastrous last year versus targets tells you management don't have a clue

    Advice to Management

    Actions need to be consistent with words. Senior leaders need to value the employees more and treat them like adults.
