I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

personal growth, opportunity to do interesting work, moving toward more of a biopharmaceutical culture as opposed to the old stodgy, slow, Abbott way

Cons

certain senior managers are all about building their own empire, some processes are still ridiculously slow

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

    Pros

    Great products to work on and some very passionate marketing staff. Over the years, patient focus has increased significantly which really helps drive and motivate across the organization.

    Cons

    Organization is fragmented and often not aligned to the same goals. There is high amount of individuals that are willing to lie, talk behind backs to create divisions. It can often be a very hostile environment despite all working towards the same goal and for the same company? After working for two other Fortune 500s, this is my first experience of this level of hostility and division between departments. The new behaviors seem to outline the right direction, but there's lack of accountability around these measures.

    Advice to Management

    Finding ways to make everyone more accountable for teamwork, even if it includes balancing power could lead to great traction with the behaviors and a better culture. Very negative ratings on the culture survey in years past were met with ambivalence by past senior management. Senior Management vision, often not shared by others within the organization.
