Technical Administrator in Dartford, Kent
Professional and friendly workplace. Very modern and up to date environment. Would definitely recommend this company as management takes very good care of their staff.
Territory Manager in Maidenhead, Berkshire
No real strategy or direction, coupled with unrealistic expectations and a real arrogance of where they sit within the market. This is a dangerous game to play when our competition are advancing all the time. Muddled, contradictory instruction from Management and demands to breach hospitals’ COVID-19 policies in order to meet with Consultants and sell, regardless of the risks it poses to Abbott employees, Doctors and patients (having previously asked us to adhere to official guidelines and told us not to visit hospitals if we were not comfortable doing so or if it wouldantagonise our customers). All that matters here is sales targets at any cost. Not a great place to work. Managers are the most inspiring and uneducated people I’ve ever worked with during my career thus far. Job hunting for the right role in order to escape this toxic environment and to work for a real market leader.
Medical Affairs Advisor in Maidenhead, Berkshire
I had a great experience at Abbott, my team were lovely and I gained excellent experience across a range of areas. A very collaborative and science based approach.

Great place to work unless you're a specialist
If you're a generalist, or have skills that can be widely applied through multiple departments, it is perfectly possible to advance and have a great and long career at Abbott. If you're a specialist, chances are you'll get pigeon-holed, passed over for promotions, and denied opportunities to work elsewhere in the business if you're too integral to your current department. Can't fault the general day-to-day culture, as while things are generally pretty busy, most people will be happy to support each other.
Project Manager - Exchange Consolidation/Migration in Bedford
I worked at Alere during the acquisition by Abbott. It was not a nice place to work at the time. I do not know how things have changed since I left, so any further comments are pointless.
