    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Great onboarding experience, ensuring I had meetings and discussions with the key people and teams important to my role
    - 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)

    Pros

    Good benefits, progressive culture change. Keeps the end game of the patient focus always in sight even in the back room of business.

    Cons

    The location of its headquarters in Waukegan or North Chicago is really the only downfall in my opinion.

    When you reach Director level, pay and benefits is generous. Very sharp, motivated and intelligent employees. Lots of growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Lack of work-life balance in some areas of the company.

    Retain Abbott culture of promoting from within. I've seen too many high-level positions filled from outside the company in our first year.
