Abbot EPD offers good salary conditions to compete against other large pharma companies in the Basel area. Abbott, in general, offers good social benefits as add-ons. I am glad I do no longer work in this company.
The vision and mission of the division are clear but no one is following it or apply it to their work. Abbott EPD has a culture of "push your own personal agenda and step on everyone along the way". There is little "team" effort culture. The working environment is bad. There is always talk about innovation and agility but the few initiatives that embrace these attributes are quickly dismissed and cancel.2

Nice atmosphere though it depends on the individual group
Salaries are not always very competitive so one has to negotiate for a really good package

I was intellectually stretched at Abbott and grew tremendously professionally. During my 5 years, I worked with high caliber, talented people as I advanced to different management positions in Abbott International, Global Pharmaceutical Research and US Marketing. Abbott presented a wealth of opportunities for me to perform at my peak.
The environment was very competitive due to the high level of talent among employees. Like many middle management jobs, long hours often prevailed and work-life balance was a struggle. I was low-balled with my starting salary (but I also accept responsibility for not negotiating more aggressively). My salary and bonuses grew over the years as I was promoted to different positions.
- 3.0Aug 5, 2015MBA Management DevelopmentFormer Intern, less than 1 yearAbbott Park, IL
The pay is very good and the perks are good. As an MBA intern, I was treated very well. I had an inspiring cohort of fellow interns, and there were numerous social and professional development events planned for us throughout the summer. Some of us had more direction and support in our internships than others. I did not even receive a performance evaluation at the end of the summer, even though I was told initially that there would be one.
I received some strange feedback while there, from upper management. One told me that it would be the 'personal brand' that I cultivated that would ultimately determine my salary and professional advancement at the company. Quality of work and ethics were strangely omitted as factors in that. Another told me that it was not a gay-friendly environment, and that, if you were lgbt friendly, being closeted was also necessary for advancement.

Friendly people for the most part. The company takes good care of its employees in terms of offering competitive salaries and benefits. Additionally it builds great innovative products and has an exciting pipeline as well.
The company culture is rigid and inflexible. Career advancement is very very slow here, regardless of how much you excel in your role, the culture seems to be geared towards keeping people in the same roles forever, which is pretty terrible especially in competitive markets like the bay area2

If you are willing to do what you are told and not question anything, this could be a great job/company. The people are great, but the environment has changed. Lots of room for advancement if you follow the exact guidelines they set up and don't think independently.
Pay not great - salary for sales reps average 60K with 20K in bonus IF you are at plan. All about bottom line and not customer or patient focused at all anymore. Which is just how the world is now, anyway.1
