    I worked at Abbott Vascular full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    co workers were great, awesome benefits, location

    Cons

    layoffs and outsourcing every year. a shell of itself now. the site will be closed shortly as building G and F are being sold off and all employees moving back to the main campus for now.

    Advice to Management

    outsourcing only saves $ in the short term, you're losing a lot more $ due to down time and knowledge. workers take pride in the company. contractors are there just for the paycheck.

    Pros

    Culture in very good and the company takes care of its employees. Salaries are competitive. Yearly Christmas shut down for Santa Clara employees is a plus. Paid time off is generous.

    Cons

    Not a typical Silicon Valley company. It is more formal than IT/infotech companies.

    Pros

    Generous benefits, genuine and caring people, and flexible work-life balance programs.

    Cons

    Working in a large conglomerate such as Abbott requires certain political know-how in order to be an influential person in the organization

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the current benefits of the culture aren't lost, but try to engage teams in the organization, as opposed to individuals

    Pros

    With responsibility right out of the gate and a learning curve that never ends, Abbott is an incredible place to join the business world. There are many rotational programs available that allow you to move to different functional areas to increase your depth of learning.

    Cons

    The work-life balance that Abbott preaches is sometimes ignored when projects get busy. Stick to your cultural backbone!

    Advice to Management

    Don't make it mandatory for high performers to leave the country in order to advance in the organization.

    I have been working at Abbott Vascular full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved interning at Abbott Vascular over the summer. The leadership was eager to have all the interns there, and from day one, we were immersed in all the happenings of the company. We immediately got placed into important strategic initiatives and never looked back. I will be accepting my offer to return after graduation!

    Cons

    I literally have nothing bad to say about Abbott. I was supported every step of the way. If I had to complain about something, it would be that the food isn't free like most Silicon Valley companies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop hiring and developing young people! As long as Abbott continues being Abbott, this 100+ year old company will flourish.

    Easy to move to different job titles and functions within the company.

    Cons

    Since company is so large, can be hard to get things done quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work with employees to reach their career goals.
