I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Old company with decent pay. Steady employer.
If you screw up - they will still keep you on a lower performance pay but will not take proactive steps to do anything!

Cons

Dog eat dog world in the Corporate IT world.
Some of the sr. managers have no clue on what they are doing. They are there because of relationships with Directors and so forth. They have no idea on how to manage the team. No long range planning, no insights. With new culture values, seems like everyone is doing their own thing.
Commercial is better

Advice to Management

You guys really need to cut the red tape, apply some of the culture values to yourself.

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

    Pros

    Great products to work on and some very passionate marketing staff. Over the years, patient focus has increased significantly which really helps drive and motivate across the organization.

    Cons

    Organization is fragmented and often not aligned to the same goals. There is high amount of individuals that are willing to lie, talk behind backs to create divisions. It can often be a very hostile environment despite all working towards the same goal and for the same company? After working for two other Fortune 500s, this is my first experience of this level of hostility and division between departments. The new behaviors seem to outline the right direction, but there's lack of accountability around these measures.

    Advice to Management

    Finding ways to make everyone more accountable for teamwork, even if it includes balancing power could lead to great traction with the behaviors and a better culture. Very negative ratings on the culture survey in years past were met with ambivalence by past senior management. Senior Management vision, often not shared by others within the organization.

    Weak leadership, distributed work across sites which is not often efficient both from personal and company development perspective , unnecessary trainings, no respect from colleagues/supervisors if no exact experience from study or work.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and look at a fragemented culture and work environment.
