Money will do it. It really plays games with
people's brains. You fail to mention that the area around
Abbott is mainly homes where people live and a lot of
marshlands. Of course it is the biggest around there. You
forgot to realize that Chicago is the real big town
around here and there are much bigger companies and
better companies to work for in and around Chicago. If
you haven't been around, the Metra is a great way to
do some of this sightseeing. With 5 bucks you can go
to Chicago and all around and explore these other
companies. We all did and got the hell out of
because it's one of the best companies to work
for in this area and getting better. Yes, there are
employees who are frustrated and leave but I know some who
left and came back. The pharmaceuticals will come back
and with better management Abbott will too.
money isn't everything. I know a lot of people
who were so desperate to leave they took huge pay
cuts for the time being just to get out.
won't see current employees retiring as millionaires,
those days are long gone, unless of course you are a
fat cat at the top.
They must change their
culture in order to survive. Look at all of the smug
companies out there who didn't.
I grew up near Abbott Headquarters and saw about
100 other companies fail and leave a lot of poor
employees. But having several family members who retired
from Abbott as millionaires by saving a small amount
of Abbott stock which over the years multiplied, I
have faith they will regain their respected status as
one of the best companies to work for in America!The
complainers on this board would find fault with any company.
to badmouth my company, luckily I don't work at
Abbott. I understand where you are coming from. After
working there so many years, they (THE BIG BOYZ) have
convinced you that Abbott is just like any other company. I
worked there and work somewhere else now. I am sorry,
but what they have convinced you about is quite
wrong. I am really sorry, but anyway maybe the money
Abbott has can bring some happiness.
but the company ain't going anywhere for now. Enjoy
the rise before the BIG FALL.
quit bad mouthing Abbott and talk about the stock -- which by the way -- is doing quite well today. Abbott is no worse than most big corporations today.
Live Abbott live!!!
that I was fired, no I was not. Nice try though.
I left on my own, and actually received a counter
offer to stay. I have since left other companies for
better opportunities, but none have been of regretful
experience like Abbott provided.
The annual "I am
Glad I am Not There Anymore" barbecue is at my house
this year, we had a ball last year. Burned a few
effigies, had a great time. We may need someone like you to
refill the toilet paper in the bathrooms.
Prozac, keep working there and you will need it,
