Overall reviews at Abbott Laboratories
I was responsible for all the product testing and keeping the necessary records. I learned a lot about Quality Management,also Health and Safety was of major importance as part of a Healthcare Company. I got on very well with my co-workers I was always a very good team player. There was a lot of pressure due to to the fact that there was a high volume of product been manufactured.
ProsManagement treated the employees very well
ConsI worked evening shift and it was late at night when I got home

Fun place to work in if you have masochistic tendencies.
If you are unemployed and are desperate for a job I would seriously ask you to think about working for this company. It is a large building , built with structural steel and glass, and it is within this building that the work is done. I learned that manners and common courtesy are foreign concepts amoung Irish people, and I learned that amoung factory workers there are a remarkable number of gosfords.The hardest part of the job was listening to the inane conversations about football or the filthy talk about s.. during eight hour shifts. Management were a total bunch of ticks, the most enjoyable memory of the job for me was the night a water pipe burst in the ceiling above the clean room and we all had to be sent home.
ProsGood Car Park.
ConsMonday thru Friday.
Excellent intra and inter cross-functional team(s)
Appreciated for the work an individual puts in.
In-house canteen, reduced prices.
Good Team Leadership.
Colleagues always willing to help if necessary.
A typical day at work began between 8am and 10am (flexi-time). Coffee and water were available to drink as required. There is a subsidised canteen. I enhanced my knowledge in ISO13485, Validation and QA. Management treated me as a person. Excellent work culture. The most enjoyable part of the job was problem solving. I liked working for Abbott due to it's openness and good work / life balance. If any difficulties arose there was always someone there to help.
Excellent Learning Opportunity with IVDR Medical Devices

Work-life balance at Abbott Laboratories is non existant
Pay & benefits
My pay and benefits at Abbott Laboratories are great, but not worth being there
My experience working at Abbott Laboratories awful
Great place to work for
Really positive Place to work for Love the Hours and the company The managers are Great With a Positive Ititude Most of the time Great Place to work for
Great company with wonderful employees to work with
I enjoyed working at Abbott. The legal department did not turn out to be where i wanted to grow. The workplace culture was great. The company encourages growth and advancement within most departments. My job changed when there was a reconstruction of the legal department and the requirements for my position changed. The division counsel whom I reported to needed someone who could work with litigation matters. I was hired to support commercial legal. I was no longer able to meet the qualifications.
Prosonsite cafe with great food options; encouraged women to excel
Consdepartment changes put me in tough spot
I appreciated Abbott more when I left after a few years, after working elsewhere. I think I was just burnt out in what I was doing and lack of a career path.

They use mostly contractors to fill their positions
They use mostly contractors to fill their positions.
It's very hard to get a permanent role within the company.
They make you work overtime and they don't pay you for your overtime hours worked.
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.
Chance to work on interesting projects
Had a variety of R&D roles in two Divisions. Worked with some bright and talented people on interesting projects. Sometimes bureaucracy slowed things down, depending on department, manager. But overall, the scientists, engineers and managers were very bright and capable. Abbott does offer quite a bit of internal training.
ProsHigh quality employees.
PoActive and something you can be proud of. Feel a sense of accomplishment
I respected management. They were personal they would talk to you and genuinely saw what you were doing and often rewarded you with back pay. I remember i was doing a job that I was not being paid for and one of the management gave me back pay to make up for it. They never made a mention of it. My supervisor was my mentor that helped me many ways when I worked under him.
ProsAssociations with different people
ConsBreaks are short
