    Pros

    The culture is good. They encourage upward mobility. The company is passionate about providing patients with products that improve the quality of their lives.

    Cons

    With the split some functions and shared services still need to be strengthened. The work life balance could be improved within some departments.

    Advice to Management

    I think AbbVie is heading in the right direction. Continue to value your people and patients. The culture surveys that are conducted have been taken into consideration and the improvements are noticeable.

  5. Great internship experience

    I have been working at AbbVie as an intern

    Pros

    The work environment is extremely relaxed and friendly. There is always a good balance between having fun and being productive. There is always flexibility with hours and so far interning here has been an amazing experience.

    Cons

    There are not any real cons that I can think of. A small thing might be to get more in person interactions between project managers and interns.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have much real advice to give. Maybe plan trips for the interns to visit the corporate office and their project managers.
