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

Pros

The work was great; people are really willing to help out and support you. They take really good care of their interns.

Cons

Too much networking expected. The internship program is great, but with the split, they don't seem sure on what to do with the full time offers. They also need more consistency across internship experiences in different groups.

Advice to Management

Consistent messaging is needed to interns before, during and after the internship.

    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.
