    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AbbVie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice offices in Mascot with parking. Some good people to work with, flexibility exists but only in particular departments. Promotions or development available but only if you want to move to Singapore or the US.

    Cons

    Around 80% of employees are women who play emotional and tormenting games which contributes to high levels of stress, bullying and politics. Lots of favoritism 'jobs for the girls'', Terribly bad 'old school' and reactive HR partnering that also contributes to the politics. Company is even now still finding it's feet and paralyzed by processes which are mostly broken, toxic environment, employees are highly ambitious females therefore it's dog eat dog and the development/promotion opportunities are dwindling due to growth slowing. Pipeline is full of small oncology products that won't replace the revenue of Humira, belt tightening cost cutting exercises occurring all around, employees disengaged and many talking of leaving. Slowly but surely slipping down the list of Great Place to Work for the reasons above. (2015, 10th place, 2016, 14th place and 2017 18th place.. will be interesting to see if they even appear on the list next year as they start to downsize and the bonuses shrink along with employee engagement). Humira is the main and almost only product it is facing patient expiry, the bio-similars are coming it's time for us to leave the sinking ship!

    I worked at AbbVie part-time

    Pros

    Excellent salary, single product and established company values

    Cons

    Old fashioned product, disinterested prescribers as newer and improved alternatives. A concept which senior and middle management found very difficult to adjust the marketing and sales platform to compete against

    I worked at AbbVie

    Pros

    Salary, flexibility to work anywhere , people within your team and also other coworkers sometimes have better solutions to problems and understand poor management, so they offer advice and support - the advice I was given was to leave the toxic management and environment.

    Cons

    No formal training is provided, dull team environment with poor management. Some people will hover over you and complain on how much they hate working here. Very negative and toxic place to work. Not many friendly people, awful handover, upper management are weak performers that do not fully understand how to lead a team (which is why so many talented people leave) .
