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

    Pros

    Every day is different, variety, good pay, good benefits, working on improving the culture, some of the management is very positive and encourage flexible schedule and even remote work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work that sometimes seems overwhelming, hard to get a thorough orientation on every possible scenario you may encounter, some of the management has an old fashioned way of thinking and make employees jump through hoops to get the flexible work schedule/remote work

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more liberal with the remote work possibility. Work life balance is important and allowing remote work keeps employees happy and retains employees that might otherwise look for work elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    Abbvie is a relatively new company, but has showcased great performance and growth in the few years it has been around. They provide great compensation options to their employee's and put value in work-life balance.

    Cons

    Since they are still a relatively new company, their are many avenues in which they can still grow and improve performance and efficiencies. All though they are still in their infancy, Abbvie is headed towards an even better working environment.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise that management focus on their talent development within the company. I also suggest that AbbVie consider financially justifiable ways to expand the geographic working opportunities to their employees.
