    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 Management

    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 (Less than a year)

    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.
