Sales Representative (Former Employee), New York StateNovember 25, 2014
It was a great place to begin my sales career. The company invested in employee training & development, but starting salaries were on the low side. Management at that time was predominantly younger & less experienced, but that changed as I moved to different divisions.

Lack of Work Life Balance
engineer (Former Employee), txNovember 21, 2014
Pros: decent pay even though no benefits.
Cons: bossy supervisors who can't watch their language, bad management around company.
Typical day at work as a contractor: exact 40 hrs a week, not a second less.

The task done wasn't even engineering, but mostly data entry. Boring when there is nothing to do.

Severe lack of direction on what needs to be done.

Major age difference. My supervisors stayed at Abbott for over 15 to 30 years, but feels miserable.

Lunch was extremely pricy, – more... as cafeteria lunch people tries to charge you $1.70 for a simple cup of tea. Overpriced, which was why I bring my own lunch. – less

Tax and Accounting Manager (Current Employee), Johannesburg, GPNovember 11, 2014
Pros: networking with international staff.
Cons: long hours.
Typically my day at work is non-stop go. We constantly have deadlines to meet being a multinational company and being in finance. I've learnt to keep calm when under pressure and take one task at a time. Also, learning how to deal with a diverse range of personalities successfully. My management style is informal and approachable. I try to listen to – more... everybodies view before making a decision. Decisions are best made if all facts are available. We work as a team at Abbott, harnessing the strengths and skills of each individual. The hardset part of the job is the long hours, endless deadlines and of recent, the constant changes within the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning, growing and developing new skills. – less
