I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Good Company name - looks good on resume.

Cons

-Very political. Everything is based on getting an advocate for yourself and networking excessively.
-Your experience will depend on your manager, but that is pretty standard.
-Rather conservative culture

Advice to Management

Focus more on what a person can do, rather than who they know.

    Pros

    Abbott has generous benefits and a good work / life balance. Once you're "in" it's hard to be pushed out. Lots of opportunity for international travel (if that's your thing).

    Cons

    Little movement at the director + level since Sr leadership stay in same roles for a long time. People get comfortable and stop pushing for their best. Most IP has been outsourced so Abbott works more like a large contracting or VAR company.

    Advice to Management

    Better career pathing.
