The Princeton Review Names Abbott one of the "Best Companies for Entry-Level Jobs"


bbott has been named one of the best companies for college graduates to launch their careers by The Princeton Review in its 2008 edition.

“At Abbott, we believe the combination of the right talent and performance leads to success,” said Stephen Fussell, senior vice president, Human Resources. “Abbott is not only a great place to launch a career, but also a place to build a lifelong career. From an on-line mentoring program, leadership training programs and a full tuition reimbursement program, Abbott has something for everyone.”

Many entry-level employees come to Abbott through its Professional Development Programs, which are primarily six-month rotational assignments lasting from two to three years in the areas of marketing, information technology, finance/accounting, engineering, human resources and management. Abbott also offers a physician development program for those who have completed their clinical residencies. In fact, some of Abbott’s highest-ranking officers worked their way up the corporate ladder by starting their own careers at Abbott right out of college.

“We wanted to find places where people were happy, engaged with their work, nicely compensated, well positioned for advancement, getting great preparation for graduate school or benefiting from any combination of these things,” said Ron Lieber and Tom Meltzer, editors of The Princeton Review 2008 “Best Entry-Level Jobs” edition.
