    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Good Paid Time Off. Many opportunities for growth and learning. Great starting compensation. Fantastic co-workers and managers. Good on-site cafeteria services. Tuition Reimbursement opportunity.

    Cons

    Poor geographical location for commuting. Sometimes a difficult work-life balance. Employs a lot of contract employees. Still need to completely shed the Abbott culture.

    Advice to Management

    My advise would be continue to look for ways to expand and grow AbbVie through fiscally smart business decisions, and continue to advance our pipeline.

    Pros

    I can't really think of any pros about this job and department except that I like my co-workers.

    Cons

    Minimal to no training, inefficient, no work life balance, micromanagement, everyone does his/her own thing (no standard of work), lack of communication or no communication, managers discuss about other co-workers during one on one and lack of management.

    Advice to Management

    Take Lean management courses , be clear with expectations so that there is no need to micromanage, be more flexible with hours and work at home, managers need to take management/leadership courses , listen to your staff.

    Pros

    Fairly stable - They never get rid of anyone (even if they should). The worker bees are great, but management is mostly comprised of technically savvy, but management-clueless, people.

    Cons

    Toxic culture in Worcester. The people doing the work are good, but even middle management is so out of touch that they don't even realize people are miserable and trying to escape. Senior site management spends all their time telling everyone how good everything is, even though people can look around and see otherwise. This site used to be great, but now people seem so burnt out. No one seems happy, everyone is overworked and doesn't feel that working harder gets you anything except more work to be buried under.

    Advice to Management

    Tell us where the company is going. Give the sites enough resources to do their job. Let people cross-train, and actually give them the resources for doing so. None of this encouraging-training but not-allowing-resources-to-do-so.
