    I have been working at AbbVie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly relaxed office. Open plan and inviting work environment. Great canteen and subsidies. Flexible working hours, employee wellness taken seriously

    Cons

    Not very many. Maybe reduce the gap between management salary and rest of employees. Global bonus scale so can mean that doesn't work out as well for everyone

    Pros

    Good people very willing to help each other. Benefits Ok. Monthly Friday treat. Big emphasis on Health and Safety. Subsidised canteen with great chef.

    Very lean site under resourced in many areas. Run like a generic Pharma company where every thing is about lower cost. Work life balance is not good. High staff turnover.

    Pros

    Good benefits and company perks.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and policies are not consistent across functions.

    Advice to Management

    Make skip-level check-ins mandatory to monitor and mitigate negative bias within lower levels of management. Management 101 training should be a must.

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

    Pros

    -Everyone is very respectful of your time and value to the company
    -No cut-throat/backstabbing attitude here (at least that I've seen so far)
    -Humira is doing well, so job stability is good
    -Benefits are remarkable
    -Company ethics are good
    -Diversity and inclusion are promoted as work culture values

    Cons

    -SO dreadfully far from Chicago itself. Expect 1-1.5 hour commute each way if you live in Chicago or Evanston
    -Slow upward movement

    Advice to Management

    Allow scientists to be more flexible about working from home. Some of us top talent would like to live in the city.
