Regional Service Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 10, 2018
Allows you to do your job with autonomy. Currently going through changes since the acquisition of St. Jude Medical, lots of lay offs and changes. Once acquisition is final, should be a great place to work.
Intern (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – December 5, 2018
went in to work on the same thing everyday it became boring after a while if you're not an engineer developing new software or products then i would suggest you to find something else, the work was too redundant.
Statistician (Current Employee) – Abbott Park, IL – December 4, 2018
Well-known and liked company, which is able to achieve a cult-like loyalty from many of its employees. Very good benefits. They tout a good work-life balance, but I did not feel like I was able to have that there in recent years.
Had mostly positive experiences with coworkers. Made many friends there and felt like an important part of the team.
Medical device QC Inspector (Former Employee) – Redwood City, CA – December 4, 2018
Great place to work if you are fresh out of high school and looking for steady stable work. But if you have a family and mortgage, or if your living by yourself anywhere in the bay area, the opportunities for growth and advancement are limited. The only way to move up without a formal degree, you have to have been with the company 5+ years and have passed the contracted agencies and actually got hired permanent. Then there may be career advancement. Other than that, it was a great place to work and learn about medical device assemblies and manufacturing.
Contractor (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – December 2, 2018
The company seems like a quiet and productive place to work. I feel that focus is very important. Managers and constituents have helped train me. The hardest part of the position is doing the same thing all of the time. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a place to work and knowing that this might lead to a permanent opportunity there.
Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 1, 2018
I mostly enjoyed working for Abbott as a field engineer. They were a little bit over managing (the semi-annual manager visits that required a car ride along to see how well you drive got a little annoying). My greatest dissatisfaction was the 24/7 on-call rotation when customers often requested mid-night visits. My greatest satisfaction is how they reward good results (my wife and I enjoyed a company paid vacation to Bora Bora). Overall, a great company to work for.
Contingent worker for IT operations (Former Employee) – Lake Bluff, IL – November 30, 2018
Management came off as unfair and favoring certain employees. overall workplace culture was very professional but felt like i was terminated for no reason and to this day never really got an answer as to why i was let go.
Senior Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – November 28, 2018
Abbott was a wonderful place to work. I miss the company and my Abbott coworkers and friends very much. I would work there again in a heartbeat. We were were sold to Johnson & Johnson, otherwise I would still be with the company and I would go back without hesitation.
Flexible work hours, wonderful work culture, work remote options, work/life balance, amazing benefits, incredible professionals
I have worked for AbbVie for the past 6 years. AbbVie split from Abbott at that time
Treasury Operations Technician (Former Employee) – North Chicago, IL – November 28, 2018
Both are great companies to work for. AbbVie gives lots of opportunity for advancement. I enjoy working in the Payroll department. I have also held the Jr Financial Analyst position in Treasury for six years.
