Assembly Line Operator (Former Employee), Temecula, CAMay 23, 2014
Pros: annual bonus, great benefits
Cons: not much room for advancement
Very fast paced job, quite stressful, very repetitive, there was very little line rotation. I did like the fact that I was building a product that was saving many lives and I did take great pride in that. My Supervisors were great people and I really enjoyed my co-workers. I just felt that they pushed quantity more so than quality. It really became – more... stressful when we found out the company was moving the product out of country. – less

Great Place To Work
Business and Finance Technician (Former Employee), Abbott Park, ILMay 15, 2014
I worked for Abbott Laboratories for approx. 30 years, and couldn't have asked for a better place to work. I had great managers and loved my many jobs. I had many jobs because if you work hard and continue to learn, you will be promoted. The only drawback is they limit promotions for non-exempts once you have reached the highest level. You need to go – more... to college for continue moving up, but they have excellent tuition reimbursement and are extremely supportive of your continuing education. It is a wonderful place for working mother's - one of the top companies according to Working Mother Magazine. – less

Assistant Chemist (Former Employee), Sturgis, MIMay 5, 2014
Pros: very affordable, healthy food. relaxed work space.
At Abbott, I worked as a contract chemist, full time, third shift. A typical night involved testing powder and liquid products to ensure proper production and safety for packaging. I learned many things about factory production, chemistry, and teamwork. The management was fantastic. They were very relaxed and enjoyable to work with, as well as all of – more... my coworkers. The hardest part of the job was when production was stopped, as in around holidays, and there would be nothing to do all night. Finding things to do, such as cleaning, could become challenging after a couple nights of downtime. The most enjoyable part was working with chemicals. – less
