    Pros

    The benefits and pay for managers is outstanding. The work is rewarding and you can develop lasting skills that are transferable.

    Cons

    Senior Management is all in for their own careers if you get in the way you are eliminated. They are not interested in anything but making themselves look good

    Advice to Management

    They should take a long look at some of the senior management and determine if this is what they want the face of Abbott to be.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are good. Company is diversified and healthy financially contributing to overall strength. Abbott has a lot of talented and good people to work with.

    Cons

    New product pipeline in pharmaceuticals is not good, and communication from Senior Management is not good. While development is good, opportunities for growth and advancement are not. Sales reps and managers spend lots of time on paperwork as opposed to selling products. Additionally, Abbott is very regulated and discourages creativeness and innovation. Motivation & morale are low which has created an environment of mediocrity.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better to employees on future development and products and allow representatives to spend more time selling, rather than shuffling paperwork which has caused reduction in motivation and productivity.
