I worked at AbbVie full-time (More than 3 years)
This company spin-off company out of Abbott is on the up and up. Every year that I worked there is was just a better company year after year. By this I mean both financially and the development of the companies culture. I worked there for 3 years and 7 months. Company has pension plan and all of the other perks you would expect.
Company could benefit a bit more by listening from the bottom-up. The company is fairly new but has the privilege of a world of experience.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AbbVie (Chicago, IL).
Was flown in the night before. It was a half day interview starting at 8 and wrapping up at 12:30. The team was EXTREMELY friendly. I started talking to them and knew I would have loved working with them. They were extremely insightful and intelligent, and at the same time, kind and easy to talk to. At the end of the day, it felt like a stimulating discussion on my field rather than an interview process.
