    I can not stand these kind of rumors. Lay offs can't happen in sales. There are only 83 reps left.

    I agree but we can't get any more lean on the sales side. Maybe molecular could but not bread and butter diagnostics. The only thing left to do now is combine all groups with one key account rep and make territories smaller. That would be great and we would stop getting phone calls because our counter parts in other groups do not call people back.

    Everyone in Abbott is wasting money trying to look busy and therefore, I presume trying to look valuable. Tens of millions of dollars have been wasted on worthless travel activities over the past 5 years. Everyone travels to look like they are doing something. These are learned behaviors taught by Abbott lifers and passed down through the years. It all starts at the Top and trickles down to lower management whose behavior is tolerated out of fear for losing their job or getting PA or worse on annual reviews. Its in every division of Abbott.

    Sick culture...and you're right, it all does start at top. And all the customers know it too...I've never seen a company hated more by customers than Abbott...

    Tens of millions of dollars "wasted" on worthless travel?

    I don't think so. I have many hundreds of thousands of airline miles on 2 different carriers... one for regional and one for global. I would hardly call that "wasted". Best thing ABT ever did was allow travelers to (finally) collect their own airline miles... it took them YEARS to do so...
    I really love this company. It has been a wonderful career, with many, many opportunities to change jobs, yet keep the benefits intact. And as I look forward to a retirement at the end of this year, I am feeling pretty good that I can travel around the world multiple times on the miles that I have managed to accumulate through careful planning of my travel schedule! Did I mention upgrades?
