    It is great Company to work.

    Business Manager (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsIt is very transparent organization and has good healthy atmosphere for working.
    Mutual respect is very high for colleagues who work for Abbott.

    ConsThe undue pressure for performance is very for the Indian employees. The newly hired bosses from other Companies or executives are spoiling the atmosphere in the Abbott which is a great organization. This should be stopped immediately or else nobody will be willing to join Abbott in India. It will loose its valued employees of this policy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe upper management should be more transparent and the HR should function without bias. Due to the bias management activities in the recent years Abbott has lost lot of good employees who worked with dedication for this Organisation for years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Experience of working at Abbott Labs

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is a solid performer that is very financially or numbers driven and provides good benefits. It is more a company to retire in rather than start a fast-paced career with (although different divisions have their own personalities). But, then that is no secret.

    ConsThe decision making can be slow and bureaucratic at times. Senior management does not follow a hands-off approach and will try and impose US-think to other parts of the world (even though it does not work the same). I was surprised by how little direct exposure top management has to international markets particularly in the emerging markets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore international people should be seen in top management positions. Almost all top managers are wasp with narrow thinking and a restricted worldview. Greater customer focus.
    What works in the US or Europe does not necessarily work in the developing markets, yet same templates and expensive American expat managers are imposed in geographies where they take a year to find out what is happening, another year to blame their predecessor and the last one to find something new to do back home!
    Strategic thinking about business during reviews. My experience has shown only numbers and more numbers being discussed almost to the exclusion of business issues or market or customer.
