    I worked at Abbott as a contractor

    Pros

    -The next generation technology for the hematology instruments seems interesting and has a lot of potential.
    -The company, in general, seems to be excited for the launch of the next generation platform, Alinity, for Abbott Diagnostics.
    -The company does compensate their employees really well in terms of salary.

    Cons

    -There are a lot of engineers who prefer to hide issues instead of finding engineering solutions. I found that to be pretty unethical and impactful for others in the company trying to right the ship.
    -The company was hemorrhaging good workers left and right putting more pressure on the employees already there.
    -Despite having extremely aggressive deadlines, there seems to be no planning at all on day to day activity. Something always seemed to come up, forcing me to work overtime on a daily basis.
    -Instrument allocation between groups is horrendous. For some groups, the only time they would get access to get work done is on the weekend, as other groups would get priority.

    Advice to Management

    -Cut the fat. There are definitely a few employees who do not belong there and are hurting the development instead of helping.
    -Create a plan for the lab for the week and stick with it. This will make it a little less chaotic for the people who don't go to the daily Obeya (i.e. the worker bees) and provide a little less chaos in the lab.
