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

Pros

Working in a high tech industry that contributes to peoples well being

Cons

Domestic US medical device development at Abbott has been in the process of being offshored for the last 10 years. Employees are worried about the longevity of their jobs and it shows in their attitiudes

Advice to Management

Invest in your people and show them that they are more important than pursuing a bottom line labor cost that is a small percentage of the COGS for the medical device being manufactured.

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

    Pros

    Focus on the bottom line, take swift action to course-correct financially.

    Cons

    Unforgivable long-term tolerance of mediocrity, insane bureaucracy, and legendary hypocrisy.

    Advice to Management

    A total transformation is required. Have the courage to become nimble. Get R&D out of the dark ages. Think and act like a biotech if you can pull it off.

    I worked at Abbott Labs as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, if you aren't contracted.

    Cons

    - Contract-to-hire never pans out and you do the same, if not, more work than actual employees.
    - Layoffs are way too frequent

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like humans, we are not as disposable as you treat us.
