The HR team is great. They have everything set up for students. They provide housing, transportation (to your assigned location and from your housing to work) and even meals for traveling. Interns only have to worry about packing their bags and arriving to their locations safely. Also, no other company does something like intern week. During this week interns get to ask the ceo questions, meet the other 155 interns, do volunteer work and to take business development trainings.

Downers

I would have preferred to know my assigned my assigned location a little bit earlier in the time line. But it was not such a problem, since HR plans for your housing and transportation.

Advice to Potential Interns

That this is the best work experience you are ever going to get. And if you are going to do an internship, you should do it with a company that impacts peoples lives everyday.

How to grow professionally in 12 weeks.

Chicago, IL | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Open networking opportunities, project management, intern week where interns from across the country came together, professional development, managers who were supportive of my long term goals.

Downers

At times, my managers didn't bring me on board with their strategy, which would have been helpful seeing as I was in strategic marketing.

Advice to Potential Interns

I didn't realize how many opportunities there were within Abbott. I was within one division, which was fairly small. I'm in a special situtation so to speak because I'm not looking for a full time offer after my internship (pursuing graduate school), and it would have been great to know that Abbott supports this. I applied to many companies that did not offer an internship for not full-time job seeking candidates, would make it to the final round, and was ultimately turned away because I was told "We would have hired you, but you were not looking for a full-time offer". The fact that Abbott invests in interns speaks to their frame of mind that you might be a full time employee for them several years down the road. This is somewhat an anomaly in business, and because of it I have a lot of respect for Abbott and feel extremely grateful for the opportunity to be interning.
