    I have been working at AbbVie full-time

    Pros

    Excellent CEO with a clear vision for success; strong compensation packages; great progress toward the culture the company envisions

    Cons

    Be ready to work hard! Have made great strides to provide the opportunity for work/life balance but it's a lean company. IT systems can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Live the vision of the CEO - be ONE company and demonstrate this by example.

    I worked at AbbVie as a contractor

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful, good resources. Managers were very focused on career building. Good benefits for full time employees.

    Cons

    Narrow focus, not a lot of opportunities in inside sales. Seemed to be middle or upper management and not much else

    Advice to Management

    don't really have any. They do what they do well and are good to their employees

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good culture, lots of tenured reps here, quality mgmt. good products, profit sharing, 401k and pension

    Cons

    but some phone corporate b.s. which is common, lawyers run the company and Abbive was on CIA so lots and lots of compliance, you are more of a compliance rep than you are a sales rep...core competencies here are a bit silly

    Advice to Management

    the core competencies so sophomoric at best and somewhat hard to follow.
