    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities for upward mobility when I was employed there except for the last 2 years during downturn of economy. Good people to work with, quality products

    Cons

    I really loved my time at Abbott. I had 2 managers in a 20 year career I did not enjoy working for. Both were demoted. The other leaders I worked for were great.
