I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Entry level opportunities available. Good non-salary benefits that seem to be above the industry average. Lots of opportunity for over-time so was able to make almost double my base salary.

Cons

LOTS of reorganization of the division. Several times we would do a reorg just to do another one six months later when new managers were put in place in HQ. People are not encouraged to speak their mind, those that are outspoken are usually the first let go when it's reorg time. This was a shrinking company. We went from 16 service reps in our city to only 5 in only 7 years. At one time I was assigned 270+ accounts, when I switched companies I make much more money with only 35 accounts.

Advice to Management

Some stability would be nice!

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Demanding job that requires patients. The company is driven to ensure experience with its employees and continues to seek their involvement on all levels. They are keen to see how they transition in or out of the company. Truly most people here stay for the long run, 30+ years. It's a family.

    Cons

    Poor salary, slow professional growth, and absolutely terrible coffee. But they people are great, they have always been kind, people stay for a long time so things are slow to change.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for people to move it up the professional ladder.
