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

Pros

Work-life balance is great. Direct leadership is also good, not perfect but good enough. Compensation and salary are good but that is a continuation of Abbott salary. All the good things are carryover from Abbott. Abbott was not perfect but AbbVie could be so much better.

Cons

Upper management hired after the separation from Abbott demonstrate lack of effective leadership. When no one from the original organization is promoted to positions they clearly qualify for then something is not right. Newly hired DVPs are completely disconnected from the reality of a very fluid industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people who work there about how the industry operates . However not liking the reality on the ground and what you are hearing and then hiring a consultant group to tell you what you want to hear is pretty foolish and a waste of talent and money. Changes being made in isolation from the greater AbbVie community will likely have negative consequences on overall company performance.

    I worked at AbbVie full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great place to learn (sometimes by counter example), very good at marketing, good benefits, good products (Humira, Kaletra) that truly improve people's lives.

    Cons

    Insular culture, silos headed by empire builders, position authority more important than expertise, too much emphasis on formal education as a qualification (at most levels).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since leaving, what I've often been told that it's difficult to work with AbbVie. That is not good in an era that our industry needs to be more collaborative.
