What employees say

Let’s change lives. You could certainly relate this motto to my personal career at AbbVie. But: 'lets change lives' refers less to me and more to our patients, who depend on the best possible therapies. This is probably the true essence of the message, we want to use the added value of our therapies, but also the further development of new therapies and innovative approaches and strategies to make a positive difference to patients' lives. This is what keeps driving me to stand up for AbbVie and continue on this innovative path. At AbbVie, I enjoy working with several highly motivated teams and carrying this motto in my heart.

Taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work.

I am happy about how we as a company contribute to society.

I believe that I can make an important contribution here.

I am proud to be able to tell others that I am training in this company.

What defines us

AbbVie is a Great Place to Work because........

AbbVie combines the experience of 125 years of research and development in the pharmaceutical industry with the dynamism and spirit of a start-up, which we retain even after ten years.

Furthermore, employees in Switzerland can be offered the framework conditions and further developments of a major global corporation. At the same time, with around 275 employees, there is a family environment in which people know and appreciate each other. All this in the spirit of "think global, act local".

The "employees come first" approach is about the targeted further development of employees in step with the development of AbbVie itself. This enables homogeneous further development and thus significantly strengthens the qualifications of each employee.
