    I have been working at Abbott as a contractor

    Pros

    Lots of perks if you get hired.

    Cons

    Unless your parents or grandparents worked here the chance of getting hired is slim to none. Almost everyone I know that works here is the son/daughter of someone who used to work here and knows the bosses. Us mere contractors don't really stand a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Please be aware how much pride do contractors take in their work all in the hopes of being hired and be a part of something greater than themselves.
