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

Pros

People are generally nice across functions and departments, The company treat the interns very well in term of activities and life and lodging.

Cons

Interns generally don't get any real work or projects, it's more like the managers are creating some easy side projects or works for the interns to experience. So the interns don't learn as much as they should in an intern experience.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn and grow; Employee safety and compliance with policy and procedure is a priority;

    Cons

    Not all managers at this company are good leaders, and a persons success in many instances depends on the leadership of their manager. Timelines are not always realistic but this is not always communicated upwards.

    Advice to Management

    Directors should seek feedback from those persons that are actually doing the work when trying to estimate time lines. Managers do not always provide realistic information.


  2. "A solid Company with product lines that improve people's lives.. Limited career options."

    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working for a company that produces products that can save a life is rewarding. Benefits and Salary are better than average.

    Cons

    Work hours are exhausting, 7 x 24 always on call. Work home balance is a challenge if you want to advance through Sr Leadership. IT Leadership more interested in achieving goals tied to compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Build growth opportunities for Individual Contributors that will enable them to deliver solutions that meet business objectives. Look in the mirror first for a solution to your problem.
