Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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.

    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.

    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Out of office all day. The friends you make during training become lifelong friends. Car allowance.

    Cons

    MICROMANAGEMENT. No future. Never know when you will be let go. No more access in doctors offices. Most doctors do not want you around. Busy work that has nothing to do with selling. Waiting in drug closets for an hour for a signature. Obamacare.

    Advice to Management

    You have already killed this career.
