    Pros

    Career growth path is very promising.It is providing industry best compensation n benefit package to their employees.It has astounding past history and has a futuristic visionary which makes it best workplace.

    Cons

    Getting promotions is tough. Process is being filtered through various skill parameters so that the best guy may get promotions which sometimes get disrupted by some strong lobbying. Which can be demoralizing at times.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing as such.

  2. Mediocre Place to work

    I worked at Abbott Labs

    Pros

    I was a contractor, but I heard there were good benefits
    Pay is reasonable

    Cons

    Horrible and biased middle management
    In the name of promoting women they make women managers compete with other women managers and other women employees and show bias
    The funniest thing was the management itself is so tired of its employees that I suspect they release virus into their computers to frustrate them and drive them out. I was there for 11 months and was really bored.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the bias shown by managers when they allow different working arrangements for different employees. Its not good for morale and the manager loses all respect.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    The 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.
