    Pros

    Abbott has great opportunities to promote from within. If you put in the work and earn it, you can be given a great opportunity.

    Cons

    Long, unpredictable hours. This is par for the course for most sales jobs, but a con nonetheless.

    Pros

    Real sense of community. They seem to really care about there employees and management is willing to work with them in order to create a better work environment.

    Cons

    Medical device manufacturing can often mean plenty of OT. Sometimes it can be a bit much and unbalances the work/life balance.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Abbott full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Abbott is a great company to work for. They offer a great benefit package and they do offer the opportunity to learn and grow and move up in the company. They make a good effort to encourage a happy work environment and they offer overtime.

    Cons

    Abbott cycles managers throughout different areas of the plant so often that the managers never fully get proficient at their role before moving onto another role. Their theory is that you dont need experience in the department you are managing to run it. It does not work because managers set unreal expectations and take time away from employees when the employee needs to explain something basic to management. Abbott's corporate culture makes it impossible to balance work and family.
