Negative Outlook

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

Pros

Compensation is very good both salary and bonus plans, flexible hours, good working conditions.

Cons

Very disconnected between areas, poor communication all around, lake of leadership, very manual processes, lack of accountability in employees. Too many business buzzwords and initiatives thrown about, with little action or delivery. Lack of opportunities unless you are based in Chicago headquarters.

Advice to Management

Need to have real leadership, people who know what they are doing and how to lead, make decisions and hold people accountable. There are too many high level positions, too many chiefs and not enough indians. Entirely too many PhD's in critical business positions who have zero business knowledge and experience.

    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Pays well for the work which is done

    Cons

    Only one product and all focus is on improving that, for the next 3 years, at the expense of any other product.
    The management is clueless. Goals change every few months.
    Near-impossible to move around.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the middle management.
    Act like a 'nimble' biotech now, instead of the lumbering bureaucratic company in the past.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits including pension plan, work-life balance. Stable and secure company.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited. Bonus structure and 401K is just OK.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing and promoting employees especially as the job market (for employers) becomes more competitive.
