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

    Pros

    Abbott provides competitive salary, exceptionally generous benefits, a positive "team" ethos for sales reps, and a myriad of opportunities for personal growth and advancement.

    Cons

    Highly analytics-driven and frequent directional changes lead to inevitable miscommunication which can become demotivating. Promotion relies as much on playing company politics and navigating personality minefields as it does on actual competencies.

    I have been working at Abbott Nutrition full-time

    Pros

    You don't want to work here, is a mafia, shut up and do what I say is the policy. The problem is that bad decisions are made at top management and you get screwed with no bonus. Seriously you are going to waste your time working here; we have had 3 presidents in 4 years. Is a pathetic company

    Cons

    If you are looking for a short time job this is the place to be, if you are the kind of person with no drive this is the place to be, if you don't want to make friends this is the place to be.

    Pros

    They have a pension plan, 401k, dental, vision, etc

    There's tuition assistance opportunities after 1 year within the company

    There are scholarship and grants available for employed parents who have students in school

    There are career options, room for advancement, and they have a variety of products and branches throughout the world

    Cons

    Production can be SLOW-a lot of downtime-machinery needs updating

    Not a lot of open diversity and good communication at the Fairfield branch

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees- not everything should be based on numbers

    Pros

    none. Period - if you value your career as a marketing manager stay as far away from this company as possible. Don't be persuaded by the potential salary or LTI. You're personal life will be horrific and the leadership will leave you questioning what made you even consider this an option in the first place. All managers who come say the same thing - 'this was a HUGE mistake'

    Cons

    1. Leadership is more political than congress and slower than the most infamous of any bureaucracy
    2. HR can not be trusted - with anything. I've literally seen HR lie to employees face, than turn around fire them in order to not be caught.
    3. Zero creative thinking within the organization and if you aim to be disruptive you will be met with folks who have mastered 'the game' and will use you to bolster themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your whole system - HR, senior leadership, long term and short term strategy. Your culture is broken and the people who exist within the culture strive on it. The business is dying because of it.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, great job security, pleasant work environment, low turnover from a national perspective. Solid corporation with a strong leadership team.

    Cons

    Unlike Pharma, there is very little clarity for territory data analysis. Fair amount of Administrative work that takes time away from the field/family. Work-life balance not perfect, but not terrible.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job, but continue to consult with Field Sales Force to understand needs of customers.
