    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.

    It’s great to hear you’re seeing changes in our culture. We’re working hard on it since it’s key to our success as a biopharma company. Thanks for the feedback and support.

    Pros

    When you reach Director level, pay and benefits is generous. Very sharp, motivated and intelligent employees. Lots of growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Lack of work-life balance in some areas of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Retain Abbott culture of promoting from within. I've seen too many high-level positions filled from outside the company in our first year.
