    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Abbott as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gave all co-ops a different assignment. Each of us had a different mentor we can reach out to for help. Managers checked in frequently enough but not to an excessive extent.

    Cons

    Have to do a lot of research for your project because instructions were vague. Of course this is also a good thing. It just might be a rough start.

    I have been working at Abbott as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely was a great feature to this position.

    Cons

    Locked into contract rate, after 6 months my contract was extended but no increase in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Your doing wonderful!! I think the external help should have the same size email outlook box. 6mb is insanely small!

    Wonderful company with superior benefits, and a stock that appreciates and good dividend. CEO is excellent.

    Cons

    Huge administrative burdens, excessive PC culture.

    Wonderful company and brands. Lots of managers though more focused on milking their benefits than making hard decisions and taking calculated risks.
