    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was a real sense of community within the Vision division which made coming to work daily something to look forward to.

    Cons

    Due to the streamlined nature of the company, having to deal with overseas departments was manageable, although it became difficult when they wouldn't accommodate our time zones or help us out as we would help them. The one sided nature of the relationship did brew a bit of resentment, but this never affected our work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, restructure to keep everything in house, having to seek approval from travelling managers overseas can be a bit cumbersome with impending deadlines.
