    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Maternity leave can reach up to 24-26 weeks. Lots of places to grow into. Shifting to a culture where growth and development is highly encouraged.

    Cons

    Some old Abbott management not really adjusting to the new culture. The cash profit sharing structure sucks. You can be a top performer and still get the same bonus as the next person that did mediocre work. Rely to heavily on contractors in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Change the bonus structure and push out the old Abbott people that are stuck in there ways!

    I have been working at AbbVie (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are wonderful at Abbvie. Many have been here 20+ years so were part of Abbott before the transition. Just good people, friendly, and hard working but decent work-life balance depending on the level of the psoition. The location is very peaceful and surrounded by nature.

    Cons

    People who like big cities will find the commute to the North Chicago a bit long.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to figure out what others are doing and make the company feel a little smaller.

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

    Pros

    Abbvie's genuine commitment to open exchange of ideas and sharing of information in order to advance new drug technology makes it both a challenge and privilege for IT GRC. Whole data integrity and safety remain a non-negotiable without the ability to share Data for the firtherment of a compound the business mission cannot be met. At Abbvie both commitments are consistently kept at the forefront of business objectives FOR REAL. True respect is given to both sides of these business objectives.

    Cons

    Much of the IT work is now being outsourced to foreign companies as a cost saving measure. The initial promises were that no employees would lose their jobs due to this, however after the employees trained the employees of the contract companies (about 2 years) entire departments were deleted.

    Advice to Management

    Care must be given as to how.much of the compliance work is outsourced oversees. The money saved can easily be lost in just a couple bad audits.
