    I have been working at Abbott Labs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Focus on the bottom line, take swift action to course-correct financially.

    Cons

    Unforgivable long-term tolerance of mediocrity, insane bureaucracy, and legendary hypocrisy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A total transformation is required. Have the courage to become nimble. Get R&D out of the dark ages. Think and act like a biotech if you can pull it off.
