I worked at Abbott Labs as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Constant work. I was able to learn something new on a daily basis.

Cons

Many of the technologies used are only used at Abbott. When interviewing for positions outside of Abbott companies would ask why Abbott implemented their support desk in the way it is (or was set up during my tenure). Waukegan is a far distance.

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

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good resources, interesting projects. Good mix of biologics and small molecules.

    Cons

    Slow and very cautious to develop drug candidates (i.e., many worthy candidates never progress to clinical trials). Management can be parochial, and seems at times not to understand how to truly nurture a worldwide company.

    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Don't require education to be respected at Abbott and in fact earlier you commence career and remain with Abbott, better off you will be.

    Non base pay benefits exceed many provided by other Massachusetts companies.

    Cons

    Worcester site:
    Tolerant of harassment including physical harassment.
    High turnover rate for Manufacturing.
    Rather than mar PR image, employee bullying prominent to reduce Manufacturing staff.
    Reduction of Manufacturing staff and overtime to show management's ability to reduce labor costs has caused a cessation in cross training outside the plant hindering career growth for those desiring to move outside the plant environment.

    Advice to Management

    May want to take claims of harassment more seriously.
