Heard and know for sure that Abbott just executed another round of layoffs - called restructuring - what? They are flipping printing $$ from that place - seriously? Smells like a way to rid order workers just before they are eligible for their... — read more

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

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.

NY Times highlighted Abbott downsized... — read more

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
