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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, company car, vacation time.

    Cons

    Being under a CIA; everything and everyone is scrutinized. Pushing out some of the more tenured reps. High turnover of managers on GI team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with the "challenger rep" model. Reps hate it and only do it when a manager is with them.
    Hire managers who are honest and ethical, and truly want the best for their reps.
