    I worked at Abbott full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good colleagues and co-workers. - Great environment to learn a lot about the healthcare industry.

    Cons

    - Consistently understaffed for internal operations, especially in Contract Operations. - There's currently a large salary disparity between employees from legacy (recently acquired) companies and legacy Abbott employees with no clear intent to address this discrepancy. - Work/life balance is lacking severely; so is employee appreciation . - When cost of living was brought up as a concern after an annual review..., I was once told "this may not be a priority for the company". - Very little growth opportunities in many parts of the company. - Process-rich workflow with many inefficiencies.
