I have worked in several divisions of Abbott and in many positions at a number of locations both in management and non management and have not seen any examples that support your statements. Unless you have specific examples you have very little creditabilty. Sounds to me like a bunch of sour grapes.
Not sour grapes, rather an onion...the more you peel back the layers... Abbott would do well to celebrate and respect her employees. There's a retired Army 3 Star General, like many (I won't mention names), who began his career as a private. He still relates to privates, and cares deeply for the ranks who held him up. If you are still with Abbott, I applaud and encourage you hornmaster6...you might be able to make a difference. The company was Great at one time, and harnesses that potential under it's leadership...with some redirection. It is not a mere coincidence that the company has paid out enormous sums exceeding a $Billion over the past 14 years, for fraudulent activity..where yes men reporting up very well lost their character, and inspired others to follow in the culture they imposed. The culture has much work to be done for trust to be earned. Not seeing it happen currently. BTW...Were you an HR exec?
ABT is ruthless! -- and has been for about the last twenty years. The bigger the corporation, the more ruthless they get. Mother Abbott, as we used to call her, died back in the 80's. Same S*** Different Day
