If you are a male or female who enjoys harassing women of color, then is the right place for you. If you enjoy spending your team's budget without measuring ROI because you lack experience and skills, then this is the right place for you. To excel here you must be a proficient liar and exceptional at posturing. Directors and VPs abuse their employees because the culture encourages and HR supports such behavior.
If you are a woman of color, do not dare to ask for growth you will be labelled rude by the male manager. If you are a woman of color, your male manager will take credit for your work and label you unprofessional if you ask him any questions. Women who have survived here embody the abusive trait of their male counter part. Discrimination of women of color is everyday busy, ER and HR support harassment of women with color and instead of addressing the issue they ask the women of color to leave the company. If you report harassment, you will be let go without reason.12

Very good salary and benefits
After multiple rounds of layoffs remaining workforce is stretched to get work done (e.g. not good for work/life balance.) Culture of fear in that if you don't put out over and above effort your job may be cut. Strategy changes often so must be willing and able to change gears and not get to see the fruits of your labors of implementing last month's strategy. Very hard to get things done due to legal, regulatory, and funding approvals and understaffing in support groups. Lots of employees end up going out on medical leave…..stress-related?5

The job itself was great, lots to learn for a new graduate and always busy.
The culture was so toxic and the turnover so high because employees were treated as disposable. Growing professionally from there is almost impossible and they drown you in an impossible amount of complaints to handle without enough support.
- 2.0Mar 17, 2014Executive AssistantFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsWashington, DC
Decent Pay, and Great Benefits and discounted perks with partnering company!
Condescending exchange with Executive level staff, and little room for Advancement. Outright preferential treatment of staff. Overall horrible morale and culture of DC Federal Government Affairs Office; other aspects of Abbott may be different.1
- 5.0Apr 8, 2021Technical SupportFormer Employee, more than 1 year
Field-based career with cutting-edge technology Solid management team Good corporate culture with coworkers who are there to assist you and teach you new things
Steep learning curve, but not a con if you have the aptitude for it. Not a career for everyone as it is highly complex and hiring profile is engineering mindset, not pharma mindset (also not a con, just reality for this great company hiring profile)

Large global brand that makes life-changing technologies. Pay, work/life balance and benefits fairly good.
Depends on who you work with and your environment but I will say the Mississauga office dynamics and culture is toxic and depressing. High turnover. Lots of contract workers. I would avoid if possible.

Great share scheme, A real pride in the products made, Some great people who are passionate about their jobs and company.
The company varies from site to site and the culture is very different at times. some environments and plants are high tempo and stressful. Sometimes work life balance isn't good depending on the role. Salary increases can be slow if you don't gain promotions1

The company is a good MNC PHARMA. The products of the company are among some of the top brands. The company has almost all products for all therapies and is a complete health solution.
Being a large organisation, and having acquired Piramal Healthcare there are different processes and policies which are not yet aligned and working gets a bit difficult. Most of the top management are from Piramal Healthcare and hence working culture is not very good today. The difference of working with an MNC and the current management is far different and not very conducive.1

Remote work possible. Flexible scheduling
Corporate politics/culture Pay could be better Seems like all employees that have been there for a short time (0-5 years are contract workers)
