    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Good Paid Time Off. Many opportunities for growth and learning. Great starting compensation. Fantastic co-workers and managers. Good on-site cafeteria services. Tuition Reimbursement opportunity.

    Cons

    Poor geographical location for commuting. Sometimes a difficult work-life balance. Employs a lot of contract employees. Still need to completely shed the Abbott culture.

    Advice to Management

    My advise would be continue to look for ways to expand and grow AbbVie through fiscally smart business decisions, and continue to advance our pipeline.

    Pros

    I loved the environment at AbbVie. I worked as a creative intern but learned so much more about the company and the prescriptions that the sell.

    Cons

    It was rough getting to AbbVie every morning. It was about an hour drive there and about 2 hours home at the end of the day

    Advice to Management

    Create an internship program for the creative network. They could really use some help down there!

  9. Great culture, great people.

    Pros

    Benefits, life-work balance, my voice is heard and appreciated, fosters culture of success if you work hard

    Cons

    Some are still trying to really adopt a lean process and some are hesitant to get on board. Overall, minimum cons compared to pros.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer growth opportunities to those you see as embracing Abbvie's vision. You have done a great job of recognizing we all have life at home too. Keep up the great momentum!

    Staff too busy to train well. Often too busy to answer questions when needed.

    Let the newly hired person know they truly have a purpose and be organized to deliver effective training.
