    I worked at Abbott Laboratories full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good company name, innovative products and the pipeline.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, upper management team is not doing good for the name of the company. There is no support from the management team, when it is required. They turn their heads away, as soon as you ask for help. There are lots of talking behind ones back with politics. I have heard comments like, "it is your job and you should figure out" or "you are as good as your last quarter". Targets are never discussed with field team and more of it is quite stretched and unrealistic. There was a year the whole entire field team of the division couldn't hit their individual numbers. There are stories about people have been asked to keep quiet by paying them lump sums.
