    I worked at AbbVie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Good management in terms of treating their employees well, Good benefit package, has a great vision on advancing their product portfolio.

    Cons

    Some longer term employees still living in past culture. There annual employee review process does not actually reward the employee and the rewards are from a shared pool of money, so if you reward one employee high you have to take away from others.

    Advice to Management

    Let's not turn into a company that only thinks about reducing cost at the expense of innovation

    Pros

    culture of the company and focus on patients needs.
    Great people and excellent professionals

    Cons

    Top management does not listen down.
    Many top level big ideas leading to nowhere because of terrible lack of knowledge of details in top management.

    Not always possible to share honest feedback, people mostly say what managers want to hear.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to affiliates.
    Listen to employees.
