Uppers

Being treated as an actual employee.

Downers

It would have been nice to work 4 days and have Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off since the internship can be rigorous.

Advice to Potential Interns

You are responsible for a project that will actually be implemented. You need to be prepared to execute your best work, this is not an internship you can slack off in.

-We were given various real-life projects to work on.
-Nutrition Leadership team and all employees were so willing to take time to talk with you, answer your questions and work with you
-You know that they care about your personal growth
-Having the flexibility to meet people from other functions, network
- Working on other assignments besides your own projects - shadowing and taking lab tours
- Flying to Chicago to have intern week. Receiving training on resume writing, time management, executive presence.
- Dinners with senior leadership team

Downers

- I wished they also spent time describing and talking about future employment for international students as well and connecting them with programs in their own countries. There wasn't much training or explanations given for prospective of students who are not eligible to work in the US after graduation. I wished they had been able to create a better network with their global team or even connect us with them to help not just US students but also international students

Advice to Potential Interns

- I wished I was able to get to know my manager more before I started so I will be more well prepared of their expectations.

Advice to Management

Fun Learning Experience

5.0 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Intern week, by far, was one of the best aspects. Even though I am a shy person, I was able to connect with other interns and learn a great deal about business etiquette. Intern week also had great opportunities to network with very important Abbott employees but still relax with some fun activities.

Downers

There is nothing about this internship that I didn't like. I love the culture and passion that all Abbott employees express. Allowing anyone to feel welcome and important.

Advice to Potential Interns

Always ask questions. Since I do not like standing out I didn't ask a lot of questions, but I learned during intern week that the questions really helped make me fit in and have fun. Greet everyone and be yourself. Don't stress about little things and always be open to feedback so you can do better work.

Advice to Management

Everything is really great. Maybe the Intern Link should be fixed some more to work a little smoother, but this internship is very organized and beneficial.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Life to the Fullest

4.9 of 5 stars

Oakland, CA | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship include the housing and transportation provided to us by the company. Additionally, I am able to gain real life experience working with financial software and improving many of my soft skills.

Downers

While the work I am doing is interesting and I truly feel like I am doing something that will help the company, my projects do not correlate 100% with my major (accounting)

Advice to Potential Interns

Abbott truly wants every intern to succeed, whether that be within the company or somewhere else. Everyone is willing to assist every intern however they possibly can, another reason that makes Abbott such a great place to intern.

Advice to Management

Some of the training I was required to do did not seem to be very relevant to my role within the company.
