    Pros

    A large amount of opportunity and support for career development. Great for those who can take the initiative and manage their own careers - it is a big place. It is very important to have the support of your boss. Fortunately there are a lot of good bosses at Abbott.

    Cons

    Like any large company, there is a lot of bureaucracy - things can take forever to accomplish. Anyone who is not a self-starter could get lost in the crowd.

    Pros

    Good salary and prestige. Very good segment to be in.

    Cons

    customers come last though customers are the whole point. Processes are not followed and middle management is smart but to scattered --they deal with all problems in a very similar manner blame them on employ performance instead of the real fault unclear proceedures and processes. Old world thinking pressure the employee and keep them under your thumb.

    Advice to Management

    Offer clear processes for employees to follow and follow-up on whether processes are working within a reasonable time frame. A company culture is very important not just talk but actual culture.
