Approves of CEO

I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lateral moves within Abbott are encouraged. Decent benefits. Many learning and development opportunities within the company. Flexible schedule.

Cons

Some departments are extremely bureaucratic and communications generally show style over substance. There is no empowerment at the grassroots level to improve processes. I question many of the hiring decisions.

Advice to Management

Hire all rounders instead of going for the extremes- e.g. technical specialists who don't work well in teams; or MBA grads who do not get their hands wet.

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits both tangible and intangible. Health and Retirement, of course. Lots of free benefits for family friendly activities like museums and the like.

    Cons

    Depend heavily on their reputation of the benefits package (which is not what it used to be) to be notoriously stingy with the salary.

    Advice to Management

    Working from home is a huge benefit that needs to be considered much more than it is now.


  2. "Great Opportunity"

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Abbott has a great childcare facility, career life balance, great atmosphere to work in, great benefits, and they push you for career growth opportunities. Management can be very supportive as well.

    Cons

    It is hard to change careers within, and it takes alot of hard work and determination in order to do so.
    As with any company, they go through changes and must be able to adapt to change fairly quickly.
