It was more about management reaching their goals than anything else. Pressure on employees to get what management promised the business without discussing with employees

None

The Basics

I am not sure the management knew how to handle a quick expansion to generate revenue. The structures they put in place, especially in Africa, did not make sense to me. Abbott in general has very good packages and they support staff very well.

Bad culture

The company was badly run and had a very closed culture where no body new was allowed to get into the inner circle. Thus hampering performance and growth.

Productive and enjoy life.

Typically my day at work is non-stop go. We constantly have deadlines to meet being a multinational company and being in finance. I've learnt to keep calm when under pressure and take one task at a time. Also, learning how to deal with a diverse range of personalities successfully. My management style is informal and approachable. I try to listen to everybodies view before making a decision. Decisions are best made if all facts are available. We work as a team at Abbott, harnessing the strengths and skills of each individual. The hardset part of the job is the long hours, endless deadlines and of recent, the constant changes within the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning, growing and developing new skills.

Pros

Networking with international staff.

Cons

Long hours.

Deadline driven organisation

Being a multinational organisation, the environment was hugely deadline driven and highly stressful. There was not much time for fun but the employees were like a big happy family. The hardest part of my job was figuring out how the deadlines would be met with the limited resources that we had. I learned that staying committed and motivated , that anything could be achieved.

Pros

no micromanagement, free parking

Cons

long hours

Worst company to work for

The only good thing about working this division is the training. Other than that, management changes every year and they never promote from within. You are expected to work 24/7. Even if employees exceed their targets, they are given poor increases. Management fires at least 2 people per year and at least 3 leave as the stress is too high. I am really glad to have escaped unharmed but my heart goes out to those I left behind.

Pros

Good Training
