    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.

    The benefits are great and the work is meaningful. The culture and branding is very fresh! The work is demanding at times but I have not experienced anything that is overwhelming.

    The old Abbott people that has not fostered the new Abbvie culture should be shown the door.

    Advice to Management

    Give the old Abbott folks that has not fully embraced the Abbvie culture the boot!
