    Pros

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time

    Pros

    Motivated workforce, sensible upper management, interested in good science, highly collaborative

    Cons

    BIG company, lots of department, can be intimidating at start. Too many projects that' can be overwhelming, lots of meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of waiting for employee to say 'No' to a project due to insufficient bandwidth, evaluate before handing down a non-essential task if the employee is spread-out too thin. Help employee prioritize essential tasks.

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time

    Pros

    Leadership is dedicated to making this a world-class bio-pharmaceutical company (the best of bio-tech and pharma) - Big, but seeking to be agile. Also we are committed to targeting some of the most debilitating diseases with high unmet need - quite a task and more exciting than working for a company that's making the next "me too" drug.

    Cons

    Location - North Chicago is NOT Chicago... it's basically Wisconsin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address hierarchy as a cultural issue
