      Long Hours and Oldschool Culture

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits and bonus structure

      Cons

      Long hours with no respite. Weekend work is expected. Little opportunity to actually use vacation. Little diversity. Culture has not kept up with the times (work from home is discouraged and employees are being told to return to work during a pandemic). Employees on the coasts move on but employees at the park (home office) are forced to stay because there is very little pharma in the Chicago area. The result is many employees with over 25 years who don’t want change and many incompetent managers.

      Pros

      Benefits, Salary, Culture, Collaboration, Flexible schedules, work from home, lots of time off, parental leave

      Cons

      I seriously cannot think of any negatives seeing that my last job was in the military which demanded long hours and was non-collaborative. Definitely a huge step up.

      Currently an awful place to work at

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Co-workers are supportive and creative in instituting "work-around" solutions. Unfortunately, these work-arounds often become permanent because things don't get fixed as they should.

      Cons

      AWFUL work life balance. No balance at all. Super long hours. Lots of turnover which makes it even harder to find a balance. Study team organization is too complex, and no one knows who to turn to fix things because no one knows who is responsible or things just get pushed around. Not the employees fault, they're just responding to lack of bandwidth, resources, and lack of TRAINING.

      Nice company, good benefits for family - balance depends on manager

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I've been here about 4 years and started when the split from Abbott was announced. It's a good company to work for overall - nice people, great benefits, and a decent culture. I took three months maternity leave (I believe it is 8 weeks paid now) and for working mothers, it's fairly good. There is also a great day care on site. The work is always interesting and changing and there is a push towards more communication and transparency.

      Cons

      Long hours. Work life balance sometimes not great. Projects often not thought out well by management and require a lot of work at the lower levels are pushed through nonetheless. A lot of initiatives to make the company more "lean" means that there is constant push back when no one wants the work.

      Pros

      Great Benefits, Very strong loyalty in both directions (management to employees, employees to management), very successful, makes a large positive impact in the lives of many patients, good vacation policy, good mentors, provides engaging and impactful work.

      Cons

      Culture is more old-school corporate, and despite leadership stressing culture change, they are probably still far away from becoming a very collaborative company. Can be a bit political and territorial. Long hours are more the rule, as opposed to the exception to the rule.

    10. 3.0
      Former Employee

      Pros

      Excellent medical, dental, vision benefits. Among retirement benefits and vacation. Also flexible schedule which I was able to work 40 hours but can be off on Mondays by working at home. Business casual but on Fridays was Jean day.

      Cons

      Long hours and challenging work. Stayed at the office for 10 hours and brought work home with me so I wouldn't be finished until midnight and then have to get up at 6 o'clock in the morning to return to the office. Not given the promotion that I was told I would be given for the past several years I was with company.

      Pros

      AbbVie is growing quickly as a global presence in pharma. There are several opportunities available and more will become available as long as you prove yourself and play well in the sandbox.

      Cons

      With any organization experiencing this type of growth, there are long hours to put in no matter how much they preach about work life balance.
