I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Provides a lot of employee services; personal and career development. Opportunity for career growth if willing to work hard and in some cases relocate. Some of the best people work there and have for a long time. Quality products.

Cons

Slow to change, and not always to easy to get things done quickly. A policy for everything, makes it hard for people to make decisions on their own. New managers from the outside don't understand the business, long learning curve, making the same mistakes.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees more, the person closet to the problem is the closet to the solution.

    Take care of your people as you always have and you will continue to be held in high regard. Having Abbott in your resume as a previous employer is a big advantage

    I have been working at Abbott Labs as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a full time employee then there are many pros... But if you are a contractor doing the same thing as a full time, you are treated as inferior.

    Cons

    Instability and Inefficiencies in all areas of the business. No systematic processes for even a single department. Contractors are not given benefits or any incentives to try to exceed performance expectations. Not included in any company activities. Not included in quarterly meetings, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a plan of action to address the issue of functional standardization and evaluate core competencies that can be extrapolated.
