Pros

The upper management was very supportive. Even if the production environment was very dynamic being a research pharma company, all the departments were very good at keeping up with the deadlines. Lot to learn in a short period of time. An ethical atmosphere as compared to other production-based companies.

Cons

The coordination between production department and Quality department is very weak. There are some very unnecessary and mandatory training everyone has to go through which take a good chunk of your time monthly.

Advice to Management

The company offers a very low pay range as compared to its competitors and revenue.

    Pros

    Very good compensation, promise you for long term career. Company itself is growing fast and you get to expose to various field of technologies. The corporate structure offers good benefits if you are FTE. You have time to explore, learn and grow. The contract usually get extended for many years and promise you a long term. Most time you will be working independently which sometimes is better.

    Cons

    Depends on the team you work with. Who is your boss, who is your teammate. Not much of the room for promotion. Very competitive environment and very high political. People aren't very friendly and very stress environment to be working with. Not much of the team interact with or interpersonal between your peer or your boss. I have heard some of the team are very good but at least not for corporate GIS engineering, everyone is so individual. Culture wise not so good here.

    Advice to Management

    Management is lacking of confidence in making decision because themselves are in a very insecure spot. This culture is staying both Abbott and Abbvie (really same people) and when that happened, it's impact the entire team. This has to be changed and work together as a team. Need to work both directions to manage, not just their level up, but level down also.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, interesting work, and a growing company.

    Cons

    In the middle of a culture change. When the manager is on board with the new culture, it's an excellent place to work. If entrenched in old culture, it can be difficult to not feel held back. But I imagine this will change over time through attrition.
