Staff Accountant Gillian Prentice’s decision to be in construction came from her desire to work for a company that directly contributes to enhancing communities by making them better, stronger, and more convenient. It’s fulfilling for her to know that the projects Abbott builds — from hospitals, grocery stores, educational facilities, and everything in between ― directly improves the communities they are in.
Although not physically working on jobsites, Gillian understands that she is an extension of project teams and works tirelessly to support their efforts. She really enjoys learning about what Abbott is building and regularly chats with project teams to hear what they are doing. She also takes every opportunity to visit jobsites to see first-hand what’s going on.
Gillian continues to be impressed by the diversity within Abbott and how equally everyone is treated. Something she knows is not common in the industry. She believes they are key components to Abbott’s success, along with the individual talents and dedication of its team members.
