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

    Pros

    Flexibility, vacation and paid time off, medical benefits, company car, pension, various locations, great for entry level for experience possible early professional.

    Cons

    Low salaries with small yearly increases, Micromanagement at its finest, Sales Meetings are a beating and accomplish nothing. Discourage reps from thinking on their own. Waste money on speaker programs that are not beneficial but if you don't spend money like crazy then management assumes you are not working.

    Advice to Management

    Align pay with the industry, Realistic Sales goals, True Transparency

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at AbbVie as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If your project has good leadership, it can be successful. Otherwise, you will find yourself spinning.

    I am a contractor but I have heard that the employee benefits (stock options, bonuses) make up for the generally lower salaries.

    Cons

    Lots of people working inefficiently, poor communication on projects. Many employees just skate by not really trying to improve processes or step up and take responsibility.
