No opinion of CEO

I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than a year)

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.

    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!
