The Abbott brand, is nothing but an illusion. What they say they value and what they actually value is completely different. Quality, safety, innovation, opportunity, loyalty is all trumped by one thing and that's their bottom line and maintaining the status quo. The more profits they make, greedier they get. They value their shareholders more than their own employees. They let go hard working dedicated veterans to hire unexperienced contractors for half the cost and if you are hired through an agency, you will be treated as third class. If you are night shift, you might as well be invisible. They do not value anyones opinion unless you are part of the management team or a highly educated engineer even if you do have the right answers. Half the management team is incompetent and only care about making themselves look good no matter who they have to throw under the bus. The other half have no choice but to follow what is asked of them and spend to much time defending the bad ones. They will never admit fault or take responsibility for their own actions. They like to start new projects but no one ever follows through anything.
If you just want a steady paycheck and and go home after your shift, this might be a good place to work. But if you want to make something of yourself and value integrity and honesty, this isn't for you.
Decent salary, good benefits, stock options and valuable education for those who qualify.
Horrible management, poor moral, and very greedy.
