    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with, pretty good flexibility with working from home, management seems to care about promoting from within, a lot of variation in study opportunities and room for growth.

    Cons

    Communication could be improved. Processes and instructions are constantly changing--especially with Abbott's acquisition of SJM still. It's kind of the norm that things aren't constant.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more--new hires, study team changes, process changes, restructuring, etc. There seems to be a lot of mixed messages with people not being on the same page about processes, and also rumors about restructuring that can be unsettling.
