    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, annual profit share, perfect place to slack off (if you've been employed long enough), okay salaries (on the cheap side)

    Cons

    - Type A personalities not appreciated. Preference goes to low risk employees (w/ kids, debt, no ambition)
    - You will find managers/directors with an associate bachelor degree managing people with top MBAs!
    - CEO is a high schooler. I want to know which high school he attended so I point it out to Bloomberg to include in their MBA rankings.
    - It is who you know ... friends are hiring friends.
    - Firm is lacking integrity; currently under Corporate Integrity Agreement with the Federal Government for off labeling marketing of Depakote (= reason for the split from Abbott)
    - Disorganized company still trying to separate from the mother ship (Abbott). Cultural survey pointed out lack of work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    - Get an educated CEO.
    - Maintain or increase the stock price until I cash out (that is, before Gilead launches its hepatitis C drug ahead of ABBV).

    Your ideas are heard and incorporated. People are valued!
    Pay is great, benefits are ok. Work/life balance is a reality!

    Cons

    IT related issues are slow to be resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees in the loop and develop those that show the initiative.
