"This was a fast paced environment with high turnover. It was challenging to get work done on time. You were constantly under the microscope of management."
"Abbott Laboratories has a friendly work environment with good chance of advancement within the R&D group of the company. New hires are usually brought in as contractors and converted to full time employees within 6 months. They have a cafeteria on-site with free coffee in the morning. Some of the contractors, like me, never get converted, this is usually within the operations group, if you don't get hired within a year, move on!"

"Good company to work for. Not much career advancement opportunities."
"I worked for Abbott for 6 years and it was a good experience and had plenty of challenges if it wasn't for the split I might still be there longer otherwise it had good people working there and was a rewarding job and i would probably do it again if I had the chance."
