A very conservative, but professional atmosphere

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
Abbott Park, IL (US)

I worked at Abbott full-time for more than a year

ProsThere are many resources (office equipment, space, technology) that allow you to do your job well. If you go above and beyond and have a strong relationship with upper management, you can get ahead.

ConsIt is common for employees to hold endless amounts of meetings, which in more cases, do not really move us towards a goal. Very conservative (typical of industry) which holds back creativity.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should be more comfortable not having the urge to hold meetings that provide no value.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Nice place to work, for a short time in your career journey

Statistician (Current Employee)

I have been working at Abbott full-time

ProsInteresting work, lots of existing resources to work from, great team environment, good work-life balance, good support from managers and site leadership

ConsA lot of the employees are contract and are paid much lower than they deserve, oftentimes a quick turn around time causing you to work long late hours on short notice, very littler chance for advancement (especially for contractors), you only work on a tiny piece of the "pie" and oftentimes don't see the end product or even know the goal of the project.

Overall the experience at Abbott was a good one. Great co workers, great products, good times. The product launches are

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Albuquerque, NM (US)

I have been working at Abbott full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey keep you up to date with the latest and greatest in technological advances for pharmaceutical sales reps. The products were second to none.

ConsThe company would do and have you say just about anything to convince physicians to use their products. I don't like the idea of pulling the wool over someone's eyes.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave your reps stick to the script and stop the deceitful sales techniques.

It was ok.

Engineer (Current Employee)
Princeton, NJ (US)

I have been working at Abbott full-time for more than a year

ProsThe benefits are reasonable. They encourage employee charitable giving with a generous match (although they only match company designated charitable organizations).

ConsYou will get ahead in this organization by playing the game. Sales and marketing are treated like kings. Other functional areas, not so much.
