Positive Outlook

I have been working at AbbVie full-time

Pros

Nice benefit, and many opportunities (if you are at Abbott Park and have good connections)

Cons

Still very old management thinking from the Abbott days, spent lots of time to align, discuss, and discuss but slow in finalizing. I agree with someone saying many great scientists in the senior management role but not sure they are great in operations and execution.

Advice to Management

Advance those who are business savvy and not just talking and always planning only. Think broader. Open minded to receiving ideas (not just talk about it, but practice this behavior). Let busines operational savvy people run the operation and let science guru handles the science.

    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.
