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

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Chance to move up the ladder

    Cons

    Management always changes, it's always new and young college students who interned here at some point or just someone who is looking for a promotion to get out and do something else after their 1 yr spot.
    No work life and balance unless you are working in the office, you will be stuck here on weekends when its needed which can be alot sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to the advise your employees give or ask for.. If you take care of them, then we take care of you.
    Stop doing big changes and then picking up your stuff and leaving us to try and make your project work and then someone new comes in and make it even worse..

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, flexibility, leadership at VP and above levels. They are working to change the culture and become people first.
    They have a patient-centered model which helps to keep the patient as the focus really helping employees to feel great about what they do to help people.

    Cons

    Paid time off! Starting time off is great but don't get more until 10th year!
    Poor performers are everywhere as company is very risk adverse when it comes to separations. Poor performers are holding back company in relation to both culture and performance.

    Advice to Management

    Change PTO policy. Make the tough employee decisions to move forward.

    Feels valued and lots of opportunities to move within the company. Most people are very friendly and willing to have informationals and coach others that want to develop.

    Comp is not competitive in some professions in some regions, and there is not much incentive for great performance. Agility has been improved but not quite there yet.

    Refer to cons.
