INTERNSHIP (Former Employee), Shanghai, ChinaNovember 13, 2014
Successfully identified the high risks for re-branding in the China market. Required talking to people about their experiences, working closely with the Regulatory Affairs team, applying what I know about the culture and the Language.

Loved the people, loved the intensity!

Productive and enjoy life.
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

Good pay but poor structure
Senior Analyst (Current Employee), CaliforniaNovember 3, 2014
Abbott rewards employees for hard work through promotion and pay increases.

However, the work/life balance and employee development could use improvement. Extended hours are the norm at Abbott and expected from all employee levels. The internal structure is lacking and employees responsibilities are consistently changing with little to no training. – more... Management does provide support to employees but development is often done through sink-or-swim methodology. – less

respected neuroscience company with awesome culture
Neuroscience Specialty Sales Representative (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 20, 2014
Pros: company culture, compensation, contests, benefits, colleagues
Cons: nothing other than being downsized
My typical work day included calling on neuro/psych's in Phoenix, AZ, the river run, and Las Vegas Nevada.

I learned a great deal about seizure syndromes in adults and children, along with psychiatric disorders.

I had superior training and management with Abbott, and learned from all fellow abbott colleagues throughout my tenure.

The hardest part – more... of my job....being downsized

The most enjoyable part of my job was my clients, the products, the geography – less
