It’s been 6 months since I joined Abbvie and I received a joining bonus of 10k (~8k after tax deductions). Now I plan to switch to other firm and I need to return joining bonus. So will I be liable to pay the actual amount 10k or the amount after tax deductions ~8k to AbbVie ?

      Great benefits, and work life balance. Generous PTO to start off with, 3 weeks plus 3 additional days off, but 10 years before you get an extra weeks vacation.


      Not every dept. is managed equally. Some departments are very flexible with allowing employees work life balance and others are not. Little to no career advancement opportunities, even employees with experience and not give opportunities to interview for positions. They would rather hire outside talent than grow their internal talent. Lack of decent merit increases, most of the increase goes to top management, rather than employees that are producing results. Lots of biased favoritism in the review and merit increase process, employees are stake ranked against each other. HR seems to do nothing about this. Also asked to take on more responsibility, had a title change, with increased responsibility with no increase in salary. Worked with manager for a market adjustment, and it was not made a priority, when I followed up with the managing director, my questions were rudely dismissed. Not all areas of the company are like this, but it was my experience.

        Well structured work process and policy, system and resources


        Never ending works and not a good work/life balance

      Hey, I have been applying since last 25 days but did not get any single interview call from any of the interviewers. I have been using personalized cover letter and resume for all job posting of Security Engineer. Not sure what should I do! Any tips would be highly appreciated :)

      I just finished a second round interview. I think it went well. I have a question if the interviewer towards the end asks personal questions like favorite sports team and other non work related questions. Is that a good sign? They didn’t mention anything about next steps at the end. They hadn’t in the first round either the recruiter reached out to my surprise for the second round.



      I just learned that having a "growth mindset" means doing the work of 3 people. . Is it just my experience? Is that what it means loosely?
