The attention recieved from high level executives. Also abbott takes vare of yoir housing and transportation if you need it.

Downers

Unless you go to the city, which is like 40 mins away from the housing location, there is not much to do.

More than getting experience through this internship, make connections. Networking is a huge part of the internship and you will have access to high level employess.

Advice to Management

Abbott is a great place to work in. Pay is pretty good and they pay for your housing. I wish I had known a little bit more information about my assignment. Probably should've contacted my manager before the start date.

The fact that everyone was so willing to help me. I had a great relationship with my manager. I also was given actual responsibiltiies. They gave me many opportunities to learn about the business and encouraged me to meet with others. I was treated like a normal employee.
We had 1 week intern week in Chicago where we were flown out to meet all the interns in the program. We got to network with corporate leaders, receive professional training, participate in service activities and were compensated very well.

Downers

I liked pretty much everything about the internship. The only thing I would improve on is the communication between the university relations office and our managers so they are kept aware of our schedule and our expectations.

Advice to Potential Interns

To have an open mind, be eager to learn.
Always ask questions and work hard.
network as much as you can.

Internship to the fullest

5.0 of 5 stars

Lake Forest, IL | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Networking within the company and departments, intern week and all of the activities that came with it, the company exposure.

Downers

Not having a car in the middle of nowhere, or at least a bike.

Advice to Potential Interns

Possibly listing some of the trainings and experience you can get from each department may be helpful.

Advice to Management

For trainings, I would definitely be more able to understand and digest trainings if they were in a video format, and not the recording automatic slides. I mean an actual video that is engaging with multiple people and walk throughs.

For productivity increases in younger and maybe even some of the older employees, I would pitch the idea of creating open and creative workspaces. I know that this idea is not a favorite topic for everyone, so to address the two different opinions, I would then suggest that only one third to one half of the workspace be creative and the rest can remain cubicles.

I really enjoyed the fact that I was working on things that real employees worked on. For instance, I worked with a coworker on a report she completes annually. She explained what it was and how to complete it, and after that it was my own project.

Downers

There was nothing that I did not like about my internship experience.

Advice to Potential Interns

There was nothing I did not know before my internship that I wish I had known. I was a returning intern.

The training received over intern week was incredible. Love the support given through the mentor process.

Downers

Offer is specific only to division - changing divisions requires reinterviewing

Advice to Potential Interns

Understand what Abbott values - what their mission is and what products they have. You'll do a much better job on the interview! For yourself, talk to as many people as possible to understand if the culture is right for you.

Advice to Management

I am very impressed by the diversity in Management. If possible, the peer mentor should have more similar experience to me.
