I worked at Solvay Pharmaceuticals

Pros

OK work environment in Marietta HQ. Competent people at the VP level and below in Marietta. Atlanta area is very comfortable living environment. Cost of Living is low, relative to Solvay salaries.

Cons

Totally incompetent and Eurocentric leadership. Huge divide between the European and US approaches to clinical and regulatory development. Abbott is very likely to clean house by the end of 2010, and retain few Solvay R&D employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop giving employees "the mushroom treatment." Follow through on your stated operating policies. Stand up for the valid differences between EU and US clinical and regulatory development. Make sure that people are doing their jobs, and not exceeding their authority.

    Pros

    communication is SLOW about the tranisition to Abbott and how we will be affected

    Cons

    Slow communication; transparency in the US is good as it can be given the limited understanding of the concept by the European leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The European leaders in the company could learn a lot from the US leaders
