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.

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?

I am glad you got to ride the wave to prosperity. As for the rest of us, we will never see world travel or retire. And please...spare me all the save, frugal, real-estate, insurance sales-bullshit.

No doubt an Abbott Lifer who knows how to play the game at Abbott. I would be impressed if I hadn't been a victim of one of these selfish asshole Lifers playing the game and crapping on people so as to keep their "airline miles". Shitty people at Abbott.

Angry Re: Major Layoffs at Abbott Diagnostics

I heard from someone who's been there over 10-years that about 500 will be let go from Temecula soon. I guess mostly from production of the heart stents. I heard 2nd production line will be gone. Some people from both lines will be let go and everyone they keep will be working the early shift that starts around 5 AM. I don't work there so I can only tell you what I heard from a supervisor there. He's friends with the "right" people there so I guess he hears rumors from management.

Temecula is not Diagnostics. It is Vascular.

Instead of just saying next week, why don't you tell everyone who your source is? (Position in the company etc.) And if you know more details like how many, what day, department etc. please state it. I don't work there but I'm sure those who do would like to know as much as possible.

Nobody asked you for anything personal. They asked what position in the company your source is. AKA Are they credible? Or if you are from upper management and know yourself through your own job, why don't you just say you're upper management and how you know without giving away anything personally identifiable. This is an anonymous site so nobody will know who you are if you give away the information that was asked for.

Someone is a tool for asking a question? You have the maturity of an 8-year old boy. Anyway, I'm not a shareholder or employee. I just happen to know a couple people who work there and am concerned about their fate. So go on calling people you don't know silly names since it seems to make your pathetic life better in some sick way. I doubt anyone on this site knows more than I do based on the comments I see here. It's mostly a bunch or current and past drug sales reps spreading their hate and negativity.

I am touched by your empathy. You will hear me rattling my tin cup in a few weeks in front of the Abbott Park entrance on Waukegan. Feel free to make a donation to the ex-Abbott Employee Survival Foundation for which I am founder and and CEO. I will look for you. I will make sure all fired employees are taken care of with your generous monthly donation of just 80 cents a day. Just 80 cents a day. Less than the cost of an oatmeal at the cafeteria. Think of it and all the good you can do. We also accept oatmeal.

Speaking of oatmeal, will the Abbott Cafeterias be offering free oatmeal in February again this year? It keeps us regular. At least in February.
