It's a mysoginistic industry, very toxic, it's about kissing ass and being the best looking, and sleeping your way up. If you can't sleep your way up, then you kiss ass, hold others career's hostage, and fire anyone you can who doesn't lie for you and cover your ass.
Horrible R&D leadership. Petty, backstabbing, passive aggressive and majorly insecure. Only want to hear their own ideas. No integrity - lie to your face, words don’t matter. There is a reason AbbVie cannot and will not organically grow.
Leadership either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about what the reps truly need. They like to say all the right things but, in the end, do not take REAL action to make an impact on the field. They are more concerned with hitting metrics and checking boxes than adapting to current conditions/needs. Because just about everyone’s job relies on the sales rep, anyone who isn’t has to insert themselves into our day. They don’t care about your time, the distractions and stress they cause that really serve no value (CCs/meetings/field rides, etc) all while still expecting you to hit x, y, z call plan attainment. Leadership wants everyone to believe they don’t micromanage..but they do, and they are inflexible and unforgiving about it. Just wish they would get a clue and leave us alone out here. On the plus side of Abbvie, no one should complain about pay, as they pay you well, most of the products are decent, and there are enough people (peers) I have come across in my many years who are kind and helpful.
Acctually my job is meaningful but the work enviroment sucks! People at all levels are mostly malicious and condescending in order to advance. People are getting hired and promoted especially the managerial roles without the right skillsets as long as the hiring manangers and they are of the same breed. Most superiors are only confident professional speakers that many of the gullible people mistake it as real talent and thus being taken advantage of.
Technical associates are not valued as much as management people and having to report to this superiors who lack the right technical skillsets means your chances of advancing are slim unless you curry favor and prioritise their agendas else they are influential to make your life at NVS miserable since NVS promotes and employs superiors of only the same breed so their own group of people grow bigger and stronger to control by taking advantage of the powerless, gullible, blind and deaf associates.
