    Pros

    Abbott is a great company that values their ability to retain their own employees and to promote from within

    Cons

    This division is struggling, not unlike a lot of vendors in this space, to maintain their market presence after a fast run up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deliver some innovation. Abbott has the gold standard platform for delivering real-time results...no new offerings on the test menu since 2006. Too long.

  11.  

    Abbott strives for continuous improvement and innovation.
