Former Employee - Sales Representative in Greensboro, NC
Former Employee - Sales Representative in Greensboro, NC

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.
