    Pros

    Innovative, competent employees. Benefits are great. Learning environment.

    Cons

    AbbVie is new and branding itself in the market. A lot of professionals recognize it only after you say "it used to be part of Abbott Laboratories"

    Advice to Management

    Get out your company name more vigorously

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Rewards top talent. Lots of opportunities to move and have different careers within company if you're a strong performer. Continues to move in progressive direction since split from Abbott with additional employee perks and benefits. Tremendous hard-working intelligent people to work with.

    Cons

    Needs a more progressive vacation plan, can be bureaucratic given extremely large organization which also needs to delays and less feeling of autonomy at times.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AbbVie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. The pay was great, once you get management to actually pay you what they offered you in the first place. (Took a promotion with a 20% increase in pay but management kept making excuses for 1.5 years as to the reason the pay never came thru) 2. Ability to work at home, my cube, or any open seat within the department. Allowed a changed of scenery.

    Cons

    1. Management and HR track your internal applications and report them to your direct manager, so they can see how badly you want to move up, around, or out. 2. Management will do whatever it takes to make themselves look good, while placing all the blame on the lower levels. 3. They preach culture change and transparency, but do nothing about working to improve it. 4. The bring in people to interview just for the fun of it, the job is already given to another employee most of the time. 5. Was personally told they can't fire any more minorities until they let go of a few more non-minority employees as it will make the company look bad and get governmental attention. ETC...

    Advice to Management

    Take a good long look in the mirror before you go to work. Realize the decisions you are making may appear small to you, but could be having a major impact on another employee and take responsibility for that action instead of ignoring it!!

    Pros

    They're actually trying really hard to eliminate draconian practices and improve work life balance, they seem to actually listen to and act on feedback

    Cons

    Still a long way to go on work life balance, in spite of ongoing efforts.

    Pros

    Good location and pleasant working environment. Many young statisticians here, can learn from each other and hang out over weekends.

    Cons

    Work load is a bit high. Research environment is not as good as many other companies. Wheather can be very bad, but it's not the company's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Need better retention policy to keep current employees from moving. Provide wider health insurance choices. Cafeteria could be better with wider variety choices of foods.
