Topics regarding layoffs at Abbott Laboratories
In the beginning I enjoyed working for Abbott but after awhile i realized all this company cared about was the end results. It didn’t matter that you worked long hours day in and day out just to fulfill their expectations that most times were very... read more
There are employees at Abbott that do not understand the concept of teamwork. In lieu of succeeding as a team, some would rather let you drown to achieve personal gain. Gossip is rampant, and expect retaliation for any constructive feedback that... read more
I wanted to ask you all present here - if you heard about any possible layoffs in Abbott Park.
IT jobs may go to Wipro or just OUT. With the St. Jude IT staff incoming as well, they will have to shed these skilled workers and keep the H1-B visa staff in India. Wipro is indeed taking over all controls, believing that the more control = better... read more
Abott is shutting down Ibis Biosciences.
Please post if you have more details about redundancies (HBU). Thank you!
To improve moral, honor & reward all employees regularly, bring back our beloved employee bonus program that SJM took away but kept it for the management only. Also, further invest in your employees which are your greatest asset. Or, so you say. And... read more
I know that people are concerned - don’t be - but I heard from someone pretty high up in our corporate office that they planned layoffs but that plan was abandoned, so we are safe here in Abbott Park.

What is the likelihood of Abbot Labs layoffs in Abbott Park in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Abbott Nutrition laid off 20 employees at it's Columbus, OH, Stelzer Road facility. These positions were in the R&D laboratories.
Anybody has more info here?
after the layoffs were announced, management here said practically nothing about them. IT is being outsourced to another company. Can elements of R&D and manufacturing be far behind?
I did not see much talk about Abbott layoffs on Cafe Pharma as well, for whatever reason there is not much folks discussing it - however, 2014 will turn out to be a huge layoff year for us.
Cuts are happening all the time, downsizing is here to stay. Moving jobs overseas and finding efficiency in the process (maybe). Vascular used to be great but now it's all going down hill. I think Abbott had around 5000 employees, now we have less... read more
I heard many rumors about the cuts in Q1 - anyone with Abbott who can confirm this.
there was a "more than 200 people cut" in the vascular group a few months back - this is all the game the execs are playing, they know that the wall street will react positively to the cuts and they are playing it for their own bonuses. abbott is... read more
2K in 2011, 1K in 2012, god-knows-how-many in 2013 --- I am sure 2014 will be as good for Abbott as the previous three years
