Terrible leadership. No products. Poor Commision structure. Revolving door of senior leaders that went from fantastic to ignorant to lying bullies to micromanagement to clueless. Terrible product pipeline. Abbott has also become a place this gets rid of middle managers and directors prior to them being able to hit age 50 so the pension value is suppressed.
The work is cool but sales management do not know what they are doing. We haven't been able to make ANY out reaches in 5 weeks. Last end of quarter, they changed bonus standards and applied retro on work already done, lots lost lots of bonus and several got none because of it.
Acctually my job is meaningful but the work enviroment sucks! People at all levels are mostly malicious and condescending in order to advance. People are getting hired and promoted especially the managerial roles without the right skillsets as long as the hiring manangers and they are of the same breed. Most superiors are only confident professional speakers that many of the gullible people mistake it as real talent and thus being taken advantage of.
Before everyone had to merge into ABA site (south SF), it wasn't so bad. But the new employees started coming from other toxic companies; they brought over their toxicity! However they operated at their former company, they brought their laziness, sneakiness, backstabbing and brown nosing behaviours.
Good company mission and change is usually good, but…no access/feedback from field leader until review. 1 boss encouraged divisiveness. Sales is appreciated. High turnover. Half of 1 field team left in <6 months.
Technical associates are not valued as much as management people and having to report to this superiors who lack the right technical skillsets means your chances of advancing are slim unless you curry favor and prioritise their agendas else they are influential to make your life at NVS miserable since NVS promotes and employs superiors of only the same breed so their own group of people grow bigger and stronger to control by taking advantage of the powerless, gullible, blind and deaf associates.
Severely underpaid. Lifeless culture. Lack of true innovation, just buying out innovative companies. Company claims quality is a top priority but doesn't put its funds there.
The people I work with make the job so much better though!
