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

    Pros

    They have lots of money to spend on R&D.
    The QMS is mature and robust.

    Cons

    A bit of red-tape.
    Risk management processes arent always employed for issue management meaning that there are often knee-jerk reactions to get otherwise low risk and trivial things fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your risk management processes. Reduce the number of configurations you support in the field.

    Pros

    This is a very competitive company great perks and benefit. They give you a lot of training. They are very community helpful in so many area's outgoing to help other community projects. Fellow employee's are very outgoing. Company very high on Health of its employee's and getting them healthy. Very high standards on the safety and wellness of their staff and the products they produce.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired here took over 3 years as a contractor to be hired. The applications you put in are over looked many times and people are passed up in many job area's. Much of the hiring is based off of selective favoritism or friendships.

    Advice to Management

    Contractors should not have to work years to get hired and Job fairs held outside the city is odd. then to hire outside people for jobs that there are trained people doing is not logical. Wasted money to train people and they are not hired for the job.
