Abbott is full of top talent and makes great products, but being a leader at this company means that work is always your #1 priority. There is no flexibility and leadership expects you are always available. It's a great place to work if you don't have a family.

There is a very male dominated culture that starts from the very top. There are the right words spoken about diversity, but no actions follow.

Women are treated fairly but Sr. Mgmt. is still dominated by Men.

I have worked here for quite awhile and while the company gets many accolades for being "one of the best companies for a woman to work" I feel that there is a huge disadvantage to working mothers. Maternity policy is subpar (unless you are salaried or have >15 years in service you are only paid 3/4 of your base pay) and there is no on-site childcare (which is difficult to manage seeing as how I am expected to arrive at 0500 and most childcare facilities do not open until 0600). I feel that work/life balance is an afterthought no matter your gender. If you are a workhorse with no outside obligations, this company would be ideal but the potential for growth is minimal and there is very few (if any) programs in place for leadership development.
