    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, traditional vacation and sick time plan, a modest pension, and a company that continues to grow.

    Cons

    Much of management is legacy Abbott and haven't given up some of the bad habits associated with Abbott. Change is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Add new blood wherever you can and start to move out legacy executives that aren't adopting the AbbVie culture.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AbbVie (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There was some travel nice cafeteria and you do get to work with both Mac and PC.

    Cons

    Its contract work and if you want any benefits you buy into a package which brings your salary down. The possibility of getting a regular position is maybe after 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Either increase the salary or and some benefits.
