    I worked at AbbVie as a contractor (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    - Outstanding career opportunities globally and a clear philosophy on talent management
    - Highly competitive salary and benefits
    - Strong patient focus throughout the business - I know my impact is much greater than impacting a company's bottom line, it is impacting people's health and wellness worldwide
    - A unique "All for One" approach to decision making
    - Outstanding product portfolio and innovation pipeline that will continue to keep the company in a leadership position in the industry

    Cons

    - A few too many meetings at times due to the scope of project teams and commitment to inclusiveness
    - Lack of some key processes and workflows as a result of being a newer company that is redefining the way it works and operates
    - Inconsistent workspace and environment - some workspace is very traditional while other is very modern and open (dependent on location)
