I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time

Pros

Co-workers are nice and some are good to be friends with. Set hours (and you can pick the set hours), weekends off. The pay.
That about wraps the "pros" up.

Cons

Managers take credit for what their "team" does.
Micromanaging is absolutely terrible. Its practically babysitting
The technology there is really out of date. Windows XP? Really... It's 2012...
Most people there only know how to do *their* job only. They don't know how to do anything else.
Contractors getting treated very, very, poorly.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with praises or rewards. Also don't forget the contractors, if it wasn't for them, your employees would have a ton more work NOT getting done. Update your technology. It's more efficient that way.

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

    Pros

    Great career for students and contractors seeing long term employment

    Cons

    Some departments are not straight across the board. And for Contingents may have to really work hard and prepare to remain contract for a period of 3 years or more

    Advice to Management

    ask employees what they want rather applying them to duties that are not within the job description
