    I worked at Abbott Labs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good Company name - looks good on resume.
    - Good variability of experiences - management welcomes rotations through the company.

    Cons

    -Very political. Everything is based on getting an advocate for yourself and networking excessively.
    -Your experience will depend on your manager, but that is pretty standard.
    -Rather conservative culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on what a person can do, rather than who they know.
