    I have been working at AbbVie full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. Porfolio has some of the top pharmaceuticals to sell and we provide excellent options for patients across many therapeutic areas.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is very challenging. While some franchises have better working environments than others, the organization is extraordinarily political.

    Pros

    benefits, pay, work-life balance, helping patients

    Cons

    I have worked in two different departments. One was a toxic environment and the one I currently work in has good people, so it all depends I think.

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are very competitive. The company has flexible hours as well and communication from upper management is usually clear on the company's goals.

    Cons

    Culture. Most are over worked and understaffed. A lot of supervisors and managers promoted from within rather then bringing in the best talent. Creates problems

    Great place to work. Management truly cares about their employees. Management shares a strong connection with all coworkers on all levels. Easy to know what role you play in the big picture.
