    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.


  3. AbbVie is a fantastic and growing company that has a growing culture that is moving away from the old Abbott culture.

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    Current Employee - Safety
    Current Employee - Safety

    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.
