    I have been working at Abbott Laboratories full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Above market compensation for mid level management+ and senior level professionals

    Cons

    Has some work left to do to fully integrate st Jude medical into the culture. Has little trust in legacy st Jude employees, very slow to react to market trends, challenges with overall employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Abbott must get the cultural issues under control or Abbott is at risk of losing its key talent in the med device product development division

    I have been working at Abbott Laboratories full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are really good and cheap. Good pay. Eventhough it's a big company it still has that small family like environment. Very knowledgeable individuals that pass down their knowledge.

    Cons

    Nothing new. Just like every company there is a battle between shifts. Finger pointing on who did this and who did that.

    I have been working at Abbott Laboratories full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good discounts for Pedialyte and protein shakes.

    Cons

    The St. Jude to Abbott transition has been chaos - no new products on the horizon... 2020 really?

    Advice to Management

    Get your acts together. You have some poor RSD's in the CRM world.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Abbott Laboratories full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will gain great experience.

    Cons

    There are few growth opportunities within the department; professional development of employees never seemed to be a priority. To-date (8/2019), more than three years after Abbott's acquisition of St. Jude Medical, legacy St. Jude Medical employees do not the same pay/benefits of their Abbott counterparts. There has been no word from management of aligning pay/benefits, either.

    Advice to Management

    A team can only be a team when everybody is treated equally. Align pay/benefits between Abbott and legacy SJM employees. Retention within an organization occurs when growth opportunities are present and encouraged by management.
