Answering your questions about what it’s like to work at Abbott.
People. People are at the very heart of our culture. In fact, it’s our people that set us apart — team members who bring a sense of leadership, integrity, creativity, and togetherness to their jobs every single day. They make Abbott an exceptional place to work, and they’re the reason we grow year over year.
When our people are successful, our company is successful. So in every decision, our team and their families take first place. From our people-centric safety program, to our top-tier healthcare and benefits, our priority is to care for and empower the people who build our projects.
Vibrant, challenging, team-oriented, and rewarding. Abbott’s work culture is unlike any other. It’s a place where everyone is invited to connect, creatively solve problems, push innovation, and contribute to the whole of each project.
And our employees get to experience a variety of projects and all aspects of the construction process, creating a versatile and powerful team. We’re proud to say this culture attracts and retains the most talented professionals in the industry.
We believe in promoting from within. In fact, most of our executive leadership began with Abbott at a junior level, growing their careers step by step. Here you get to choose your career path, one that cultivates your specific strengths and talents, one that is clear and achievable.
And no one does it alone. At Abbott we train, mentor, and support you in your career growth. We give you maximum hands-on experience, and empower you with real-life skills.
Take for example our local equipment centers, where everyone from accountants to superintendents can study trade skills like welding and rough carpentry. And our professional development program offers classes like estimating, contracts, and public speaking.
Abbott Construction believes so strongly in giving back that each employee receives an annual paid day off to work for a non-profit of their choosing. Volunteering is central to our culture, and a chance to share causes that are close to our hearts. We also get together throughout the year for events like planting school gardens and packing food boxes for the hungry. Discover more about how we Give Back.
You’ll find pretty much everyone, from all walks of life, with all kinds of interests. What we share in common is our passion for the absolute best in construction, and for building with integrity as a team.
Abbott is an easy place to build relationships. We go out of our way to include each other, celebrate, and relax together — because let’s face it, construction can be a pretty intense job. We hang out for happy hours, set sail on company fishing trips, and toast our projects at rooftop dinner parties. But most of all, our friendships are built through the power of the projects we build together. There’s nothing quite like it.
