Overall Reviews at Abbott Laboratories

3d Modeler | Dallas-Fort Worth, TX | Nov 1, 2019
abysmal upper management
After working there 4 years I was transferred to a new group with no notice and placed under supervisors who knew absolutely nothing about what I was doing for the company.
Product Consultant | Minneapolis, MN | Jan 27, 2020
Enjoyable Consulting Experience
Great Consulting Project. Worked as member of global team charged with product life cycle rationalization activities. In the end, project champion was severed and team disbanded.
Customer Service Representative | Temecula, CA | Jan 15, 2020
Great place to work
I had obtained the job through ManPower, and the overall job was great. What was a downside about the job was once I was trained and hired on the people were not as welcoming due to rumors from a female employee who has been working there for a long time and is the boss's favorite. I tried to accommodate to all the employees but was let go due to multiple circumstances that were not my fault. I am still employable through ManPower because I was communicative with them and how they were treating me.
Senior Software Engineer | Santa Clara, CA | Mar 19, 2020
Ok place to work
People are nice and good work/life balance. For a medical device company, Abbott is par for the course. As a software engineer, you may be a little bored with the pace.

Senior Brand Manager | Columbus, OH | Mar 3, 2020
Great company, poor leadership
Great company with great brands, but leadership takes a "financials are the only thing that matters" mentality and it drives a pretty toxic culture. I learned a lot there, but am glad I'm no longer there.
