    I worked at Abbott Nutrition full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health care benefits, company car,

    Cons

    Don’t value experience, Ra-ra culture, favoritism, unrealistic goals, the work you do doesn’t relate necessarily to what you are going to get bonuses on and depending on what area you work you may or may not make bonus even though you might work very hard. Goals are always changing every six months or so. Corporate culture is changing- they’re only hiring young inexperienced people. Burn through the job within 1 to 2 years. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Make Bonuses in line with what is in the reps control.

  3. "Zero Transparency."

    Upper management has ruined company culture. Employees are treated horribly. Requirements are unrealistic and antiquated. Sales direction changes on a whim.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the cost of replacing the exodus of employees from AN. The turnover should be a clue.
