I worked at AbbVie as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The upper management was very supportive.
Even if the production environment was very dynamic being a research pharma company, all the departments were very good at keeping up with the deadlines.
Lot to learn in a short period of time.
An ethical atmosphere as compared to other production-based companies.

Cons

The coordination between production department and Quality department is very weak.
There are some very unnecessary and mandatory training everyone has to go through which take a good chunk of your time monthly.

Advice to Management

The company offers a very low pay range as compared to its competitors and revenue.

    I worked at AbbVie full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful grounds, some work life flexibility, solid company, if you make the opportunity there could be lots of opportunities to grow your skills but not necessarily be rewarded for them.

    Cons

    Management sabotage projects rather than add value to move them aling; management more concerned about their titles than actually assuring work is being performed accurately. No value is placed on hard working employees, racial and age discrimination is rampant and accepted throughout the organization. Lots of money is wasted on projects due to managers political posturing and on and on. This can be a very combative environment and I wouldn't recommend it for the entry level or faint at hard . However, if you can survive here you have you've earned your worrier badge and can work almost anywhere. 😉

    Advice to Management

    Institute mandatory management training for diversity and sensitivity, age discrimination, put systems in place to make management accountable and overall people skills training. Lastly, there is a significant amount of funds wasted on manager posturing. ..entire projects done done incorrectly and needing revamping because of managers gone rogue and not being held accountable for the 1000s of wasted dollars on resources and equipment.
