Pros

Good benefits, loyal to their people

Cons

Perks are weak, no stock options below management level, poor company car choices, very conservative and strict with guidelines and rules (old pharma feel).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just match competitor benefits, beat them to retain the top sellers in the industry.

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time for 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.
