ABBOTT ITSELF NAME IS ENOUGH WHERE PEOPLE LOVE TO WORK AT ANY PLACE , AT ANY TIME AND AT ANY LEVEL. WHEN I JOINED ABBOTT IN 2006 AT RAIPUR (CG) IT WAS A TOUGH TIME FOR ME I HAD TO FIND OUT WHOM DOCTORS ARE GIVING BUSINESS SO THAT I HAD TO RETAIN THEM, MAKE RELATIONS WITH THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I WOULD SAY THESE INITIAL DAYS WERE TOUGH FOR ME.
I HAVE LEARNT SO MAY THINGS LIKE HOW TO CONVERT A DOCTOR FOR OUR PRODUCT THROUGH SCIENCE, PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE, BUILDS RELATIONSHIP WITH CUSTOMERS ETC.
OUR SUPERVISORS/MANAGEMENT OUR VERY GOOD DURING WORKING, MEETINGS THEY ALWAYS ENHANCED KNOWLEDGE, CONFIDENCE ETC.
MY TEAM MATES VERY CO -OPERATIVE ,HELPFUL, SHARES SUCCESS AND FAILURES WITH EACH OTHERS, BELIEVE IN EACH OTHERS.
IT IS VERY TOUGH TO SAY WHICH PART IS EASY AND HARD OF THE JOB. WHEN I WAS IN FMCG DURING THAT TIME MY BOSS HAD GIVEN ME ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE THE TASK WITHIN A WEEK. I HAD TO SELL 200 PACKS OF WHEAT FLOOR. IT WAS A TOUGH TIME FOR ME. I ACHIEVED APPROX. 182 PACKS AND MY BOSS AND DEALER WERE HAPPY WITH ME WHAT I DID.
EVERY DAY IS A NEW DAY. I ADMIRE THIS CONCEPT AND I ENJOY WITH MY CUSTOMERS MEETING THEM AND CONVINCE THEM FOR US.

Abbott is a leading global healthcare company having rooted big sales base and trust in indian pharma market. my work starts with meeting cardiology doctors and promoting our brands and generating prescriptions
I learned lot of things in abbott, the MNC culture, what to and how to speak with a customer. right brand promotion for right doctors, conducting CME programmes, Camps.
My co workers are very cooperative, after i became a manager splitup our jobs and collective team work to acheive the targets
Decent amount of politics - hardest part of job
Our team acheived 2 international trips. one is HONG KONG and another trip is Thailand. HK was my first interantional trip. its a big pride for me.
ProsIn company meetings good stay in Big Hotels
Consclaiming meeting amounts are delaying for months
1. Not more than 2-3 hours of work in most roles. Huge pharma industry margins ensure that org and operations are bloated and inefficient compared to FMCGs
2. Slow progress and learning, low salary growth
3. Job rotations are rare, most people stagnate in roles for long periods.
4. Low flexibility- only 2 days/month WFH even after pandemic, even in roles where all meetings are happen teams.
5. Loads of free time for politics by most long timers
6. Senior management hires are almost always external since internally rotations and grooming are slow.
7. Peer learning is very limited.
8. For the first time, company has fired people in non-sales roles in 2023. There is risk of not being relevant as per market standards after getting fired if you stay for too long in one role in this company
In my career of 10 years I learned many new professional insights which would certainly help me reach the pinnacle of excellence in pharmaceutical sales and marketing. Its my responsibility to highlight the efforts of the organization which helps the individuals to transform in to professionals. I would like to share few things which i learned in Abbott.
-Unique methods of sales enhancing strategies and management
techniques that have helped multiply sales and subsequent profits.
-Development of a solid customer base
-KOL management & ROI analysis.
-Getting associated with KOL'S to organize training and educational seminars.
So in short i would say that the leadership is good and a good place to work.

It has been 12 years since I worked for Abbott so things have most likely changed.
I have fond memories of Abbott Laboratories as it was my first real job out of college. I worked for Abbott for almost 15 years beginning in the laboratory and eventually moving to the Legal Department. I had a tremendous sense of pride working for a Fortune 100 company straight our of college as back in the early 90's the job market was not good for college grads. Back then it seemed like the company was near impervious to the bad economy. Stock was strong and I was making more money than my contemporaries. I eventually left realizing that that myth of staying with the same company for so long is good for your resume and shows loyalty. I was wrong. Salary increases are better when you change jobs periodically. For me, I was stuck in the corporate yearly pay raise cycle so my incremental salary increases were nominal over time. The only thing that made it worth while was the 401k and the profit sharing program. This was the only thing that separated Abbott from all of my other jobs during my career. I saw lower middle class people move to the upper middle class riding the share price and growing with the company. Secretaries and janitors would retire with considerable nest eggs. It was amazing. Almost an even trade: you dedicate your life to Abbott and they will take care of you. I have not seen anything like it since. The price was heavy for some though. Bright stars would
Pros401k/profit sharing - on site cafeteria (at HQ)
ConsAll the corporate cliche's perfectly shown in Office Space - Incompetent/Unapproachable management.
Overall, Abbott is an AMAZING company to work for and has amazing pay/benefits. There is NO complaints in this department. They truly take care of you in a number of ways which most places don’t do anymore. You also get a EOY bonus and pay raise per year depending on performance. You’re even allowed to buy an additional week of PTO which I love. I never worry about not having enough PTO to go on vacation or worry about not having enough sick days. You will be handsomely compensated for your work here and I couldn’t be happier.
The Work/Life balance is also ok but could be better as remote or hybrid schedules are HARD to ask for. I, for example, am only allowed one remote day. Anything more has to go through upper management for approval as working in the office is STRONGLY pushed on you. And why is that? Because that’s what “sets us apart”…whatever that means. I Can do the same job at home as I rarely even interact with people in person but this truly reflects the old school style of work in play at Abbott. If it weren’t for COVID, I am convinced we would still be using plug in phones and not know what Microsoft Teams is.
And this leads to my biggest gripe with Abbott which is they’re old school type of management and thinking. If you’re an older professional, you’ll probably fit right in. If you’re a young professional, take caution when applying. I can’t speak for every division, but for mine, it is VERY old school. To the point where it is getting to be too much for me
ProsGreat pay/benefits, Great management, Great bonuses, Great communication
ConsOld school management, Too many older employees

While working at Abbott Nutrition, I have realized that I desire a career where my work can not only have a direct effect on people’s lives, but can improve the quality of their lives as well.
Currently, I am a Quality Coordinator for Abbott Nutrition within the Feeding Expert department where I have exceeded expectations in several categories for this department in 2012. My job responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
• Displaying excellent verbal and written communication skills that enhance customer satisfaction with the highest level of customer service they receive.
• Identifying and documenting all Level I, II, and III complaints on all Abbott Nutrition Pediatric formula products, completely and accurately in the RPIC database system for reporting to the Food and Drug Administration and Abbott Nutrition Quality Assurance.
• Exhibiting leadership within the department by serving as a role model through interaction with other departments, supporting management’s direction and daily work responsibilities.
• Functioning as a proactive liaison and provide pertinent feedback to marketing groups, medical departments, field sales representatives, public affairs and quality assurance areas within Abbott Laboratories.
My colleagues are extremely bright, energetic individuals and I feel priveleged to call many of them my friends. We work well together and are always encouraging each other to go above and beyond in everything we do.

ProsMy position is engaging and challenging, I accomplished several goals and achievements in my department, There are terrific people in my department which makes everyday enjoyable, Workforce is incredibly flexible with scheduling, and the job description allows for great flexibility, achievement and growth, for which I have worked with sales, marketing, and several other departments
ConsMorale is not good and several professionals were laid off without being explained exactly why. Also, the environment can be noisy with vacuuming and climate control is not good.
I hired into Abbott Nutrition Columbus plant in June 2022 as an Electrician. The first 2 weeks were in a classroom doing orientation which was very informative. It’s rare for a company to invest as much time, money and effort into new hires as what Abbott does. I was impressed with that. Got a free pair of boots the first week and t-shirts to wear under the uniform. Learned a lot about the company and the process at Columbus plant.
I spent week 3 with other maintenance and electrician new hires going thru maintenance training. The guys doing the maintenance training were great. Week 3 with the maintenance trainers was a good experience for me.
Week 4 I was placed on on the floor. I hired in for the 2-2-3 12 hrs night shift but initially you are on day shift mon-Friday 8 hr days until they feel you are ready to go to your shift I guess. Once I was on the floor is when I started to regret taking this job. I hired in as an Electrician. I found out there were a couple mechanics(who are paid less) who wanted the electrician job. Instead of making a few mechanics electricians they hired me and 2 other guys. I believe this was the main reason behind the toxic atmosphere. These guys were already there and wanted the promotion to Electrician but instead the company hired us new guys and they had to stay as mechanics. I felt unwelcome by probably 80% of the maintenance guys mechanics and electricians. Some wouldn’t speak to me. Myself and other new guys were call
Ambiente de trabajo familiar con cultura de empresa
Abbott ha sido una excelente primera escuela para mi última experiencia, dónde he podido crecer al nivel profesional, teniendo responsabilidades a nivel estratégico y operativo, pero también al nivel personal, desarrollando soft kills y evolucionando en un ambiente de trabajo muy propicio a la mejora.
- un día típico en el trabajo
Lo primero de todo era saludar a todo el mundo y tomarnos un café. Luego se priorizaban las tareas urgentes, de las necesarias pero no urgentes, de las que había que hacer a lo largo de la semana. Todos los días eran diferentes según las necesidades de reuniones que teníamos, o los viajes o congresos planificados.
- lo que aprendí
Aprendí que solo no se llega tan lejos como gracias a un equipo que involucras y te involucra.
También, desarrollé capacidad de multitarea, siempre llegaba un proyecto urgente que no teníamos planificado, por lo cual no tienes otra manera de saber gestionar tu estrés y conseguir que todo salga, sin que afecte a los demás.
Por otro lado, aprendí que la paciencia es necesaria en todos los ámbitos, que sea para tener más proyectos, o tan solamente para observar los resultados de las acciones que hayas puesto en marcha meses anteriores (en este caso era sobre todo así al ser un sector lento, en el cual los prescriptores tardan en cambiar sus hábitos).
- la dirección/gerencia
He tenido la oportunidad de pasar de becaria a empleada, en este sentido solamente puedo agradecer a la dirección por haber reconocido es

Day to day is repetitive and unfulfilling. Unless something breaks or something new happens, its the same old same old. I had to have an extensive resume and apply many many times to get my job here, and its severely underwhelming for the experience they require.
Management is the worst I've had in all my years in the workforce. There is a clearly defined line in the sand between salary and non-salary people. It is us against them, and they feed you a crock about how they "appreciate" you as a team, and then turn around and make every individual feel unimportant and unacknowledged unless you're a favorite. Policies seem to only apply to hourly or "non-exempt" employees. If you're salaried you can basically do as you please. Biggest example is holidays and the hypocrisy surrounding them. They act like they care about the individual but if you meet with them one-on-one, they talk around answers, or give you promises they can't keep or just don't bother pursuing.
Pay and raises are unfair and is the current topic of grief amongst everyone. New or old, experienced or not, it doesn't matter and there is no clear system or fair way they review you and increase your pay. People are job hunting and talking of leaving en masse, at this time. It all comes down to favorites. This place feels like its about to riot due to the recent raise/reviews.
It's like pulling teeth around here to try and advance or try to get your foot in the next door you wanna move to. Unless upper management
Good old boys club. Don't complain because they make your life worse and do nothing about the situation, this includes management.
To Whom This May Concern,
Per our conversation that we had last week on Tuesday where you stated that if I am unhappy about the way that Alere does things than I can just leave. And that I can forget about getting the day after Christmas off for Kwanzaa. It seems as though Ledgent and Alere want to replace me. Being denied a religious/cultural holiday off is against the law.
At the meeting that we all had together on Tuesday, November 26, 2013, the HR Director at Alere asked me to stay with Alere and work with the company through the transition to March 1, 2013. The Revenue Cycle Director also stated, “I will not fire you. You will fire yourself.”
I work very hard and do not take my breaks as I am anxious about leaving my desk or anything that I do. I get accounts paid, that if you work in the medical field, you know that is a huge accomplishment to have those companies pay claims. I can’t sleep at night and barely eat anymore because of the stress. My doctor noted by heart beat at 100BPM. He asked me why my heart was racing and I told him about work, being micromanaged and worried about getting days off of work. At the lunch last week on Wednesday, while talking with other team members, they were astonished by what I have to do stating that they do not get that type of treatment. As I am being honed in on it proves my previous concern that I voiced to you about being harassed. Being singled out, having things only apply to you and not everyone else is harassment.
Great Coworkers, Interesting Work, Slimy/Two-faced Management
The coworkers are the best part of the company, they are generally friendly, helpful, and cooperative. The work was mainly data analysis, protocol authorization and execution, experiment troubleshooting, data integrity checks, blood requisition, and bench studies. The job hours were 8am-5pm with a 1 hour lunch (unpaid) and two 15 minute breaks (paid).
The workload is fairly intense, there's stuff you'll have to do at home to finish on time. They'll tell you not to but realistically you have to for certain projects to stay on schedule. The salary was paid by a temporary agency and was ~$32/hour. Abbott doesn't really have an HR department so most of that of work is contracted out to temp agencies.
Word of warning: IF YOU ARE CONTRACT YOU CAN BE LAID OFF AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE AND ABBOTT IS NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REASON. I moved across the province to start work with the company at its Ottawa location. bout 3 months in I received a phone call after one of my shifts that I had been terminated. I was offered no explanation besides "it just doesn't seem like the right fit". I'm open to all kinds of criticism, I relish it because it is a learning opportunity and a chance to improve. However, at no point during my tenure was I ever informed about any dissatisfaction with my performance. Literally none. I worked my hardest for them, often during my own time at home and on weekends, in order to help the company achieve its goals as efficiently as possible. Not once was I ever
I can't speak about the laboratory sites outside of Santa Rosa, CA because I did not work at them. My review is about the Santa Rosa site called Redwood Toxicology. I was a temporary employee so I got paid more than the company employees. I don't recommend working at the Santa Rosa site because they are understaffed and because of that they overwork you. I would always work 12+ hours. The most I have worked was 15 hours. Every shift is bad but the first and second shift is run a lot smoother. Graveyard shift is the worst because we aren't just understaffed with laboratory technicians, we are understaffed in every department especially the data entry department which is the most important department because we can't start our work until they are done with theirs. I would come in at 10pm and I won't start until 3:00am because I have to wait for the data entry department. In the morning shift, we were told to only do 3 batches, but I was doing 5 or 6 in the graveyard shift and management knows about this, but they do not care. Lister the manager is the worst because if you tell her about the issues that you are having, she acts like she doesn't care. I went to go talk to her about the problems on the graveyard shift, everyone warned me about her, but I did not believe them until I told her the problems we were having during the night, and she just told me that my work was easy, so I just quit. I can't believe she said our work is easy, but yet she does not want to show up during
