What people are saying about Abbott
Hello, I'm looking forward to ask increase next year. The increase itself is around 30% of my current salary. Is it possible to ask that? I'm in the low range right now and the 30% ask is going to average range. My current role: Data Analyst/Power Platform Developer/ BI Developer Current Pay: 68k per year Abbott

Good benefits and salaries are above market average
Management team too reactive to market performance and making decisions without looking at the long term vision
- 2.0Sep 10, 2008Managing DirectorFormer Employee
a company with high tech products and some high skilled and motivated (but for how long?) middle management
senior management (emea) has no leadership or peoplemanagement skills and this explains why many good but demotivated employees leave for other companies.3

Abbott is a decent company to work for. The majority of the people are very friendly, helpful and good to work with. It seems like all the full time employees have been here for ages so that speaks pretty highly of the place in my view. The full time employees seem happy with their compensation and benefits packages.
It is hard to land a full time position here unless you are abundantly qualified, in good with a manager or have previous contract experience at Abbott. Some employees have been doing contract work here for 5+ years. It seems like certain areas of the company are getting outsourced overseas. Management likes to set lofty goals that are rarely achieved because the timelines are unrealistic.1

Abbott Nutrition is a great stepping stone for any young professional looking to open more job opportunities elsewhere. I would not recommend Abbott as a long-term career. Upper management is clueless and promotions are based more upon how buddy buddy you are with the higher-ups rather than talent and ability. Hard-working employees are often overloaded with tedious, reduntant projects that carry into personal time at home. Communication across management is non-existent, so direction is usually vague, contradictory, and unproductive. Working environment can best be described as judgmental, very conservative, 'don't speak unless spoken to', undiverse, and as being a place where creative collaboration and lower ranking employee input is not welcome. If you are lucky enough to have a non-micromanagerial manager, you will inevitably feel hindered by the unrealistic company expectations and restrictions put in place that limit employee creativity and ownership of your position. Upper management is expected to be treated like kings and queens, and dealing with miscommunication and gossip is just normal part of an average week. I used to love working for Abbott Nutrition, but this department has been moving in the wrong direction for a long time.7

Personal experience, supervisor and coworkers make it a great place to work
Management lacks ability to listen to input from workers in the department and yearly raises are below market value1

Good lateral opportunities if you are willing to relocate. Good benefits
Management is too reactive and not proactive enough and doesn't care about input from anyone under VP level. This causes horrible work life balance as you are constantly asked to provide more and more meaningless projects. This work environment doesn't allow you to look forward and do productive projects. You work for months to develop a budget and forecast with solid, supported backup, however Mgmt does't care or listen. They tell you what your numbers are going to be…defeats the purpose of 'building' a budget. Mgmt could have just said what number they wanted and saved everyone a lot of time and effort. Be prepared to kiss up, or you don't move up in the company. VERY political.5

- Fair compensation - Good benefits - 401k matching, reasonable paid time off, unlimited sick days - Great parent company, Abbott, with innovative products and philanthropic initiatives
- Face time working hours from management - Lean working conditions across all groups (not backfilling those who left or on LoA) - Low employee morale and tense environment - Management tries squeezing every ounce of work out of employees (evenings and weekends included) to meet deadlines2

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

401k and annual bonus structure - but this only helps the less than average wages that are given to people.
NO work life balance. No promotional opportunities come to light that they say they offer. Negative management and directors who constantly change their mind and say they never said that!

The people, benefits and compensation
Upper management doesn't communicate as much as they should and it takes forever to get decisions made
