    I worked at Abbott as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is really nice. Nice facility. Great to their employees.

    Cons

    My direct manager was never present to see what was going on. She would get a story from the area Supervisor Helper, who received a one-sided story from one or two individuals. Instead of finding out what was really going on (a young man making me look bad to make himself look better). I got along with everyone else there. One or two things from just one or two people shouldn't define a person's entire character. Training materials were minimal. My 2 trainers were very friendly though. Later, other ladies I had the privilege to sit with were awesome. On my last day, the young man went so far as to delete a note on an account that I made to make it appear I didn't do my job properly. He cheats on his "times" for idoc processing. In the end I felt like I was being sabotaged. It turned out I was correct.

    Advice to Management

    Be present and walk the floor once in a while. Only saw you in a few meetings or on the way to the restroom. It's hard to know what is truly going on when you are making decisions based on hearsay. The person you have doing your job, favors people who suck up. I have to admit, her being incredibly fake doesn't help either.

    Pros

    Die Benefits sind recht gut, sollten aber auch als Schmerzensgeld betrachtet werden. Tarif, Zeiterfassung, gute Verkehrsanbindung mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln (Wiesbaden-Delkenheim).

    Cons

    Rücksichts- und respektloser Umgang mit den Mitarbeitern, ständige Reoganisationen ohne positive Entwicklung. Fadenscheinige Unternehmenswerte, die nicht gelebt werden. Ein zahnloser Betriebsrat, auf den sich der Mitarbeiter nicht berufen sollte. Fluten informationsleerer eMails, während die wirklich wichtigen Dinge nicht kommuniziert werden. Druck, Frust, Stress, weinende Kollegen im Großraumbüro. Niemals wieder!

    Advice to Management

    Das Vertrauen der Mitarbeiter gewinnen und dieses nicht missbrauchen. Stabile Strukturen schaffen und das furchtbare Angstregime beenden. Mitarbeitern die Würde wiedergeben.
