AbbVie employees work every day to discover and address many of the world's most pressing health challenges.
Make Possibilities Real
United by Our Purpose
We are scientists, researchers, communicators, manufacturing specialists, regulatory experts, marketing professionals and more. We’re also parents, brothers, sisters, friends, community leaders and volunteers. We come together every day to create, discover and deliver new ways to improve people’s health.
Play an Important Role
All career paths lead to the same outcome. Improving lives. Whether you work in the lab, in an office or on the production floor, the objective is the same. We offer development opportunities that provide you the chances to innovate, collaborate and demonstrate your passion for patients and excellence.
Meet the People. Share the Passion.
From our newest employees to our top executives, these five beliefs drive how we work—and fuel successful careers.
Putting Patients First
Emilie Moghabghab, Care Coach Manager, Beirut, Lebanon
“I work with all different types of patients. It’s not like one rule applies to all. You have to deal with each patient according to who they are.” Emilie has used a range of techniques when working with patients, especially children and those who are vulnerable. This includes motivational interviewing and reflective listening.
Breaking the Mold
José Otero Marrero, Clinical Operations Manager, San Juan, Puerto Rico
“I’ve been able to realize one of my dreams, which is to help patients and at the same time bring these clinical studies to Puerto Rico.” José overcame cultural barriers in Puerto Rico to contribute new advances in the treatment of hepatitis C. His unique approach increased the number of patients referred for clinical studies.
Rewarding the Best
Afif El Kik, Immunology Commercial Director, Sao Paulo, Brazil
“If you perform and know where you want go, you don’t have to look for the opportunities—they will find you.” Afif’s career trajectory at AbbVie has included numerous roles in several countries and continents—and shows no signs of stopping.
Leading by Example
Alexander Wuerfel, VP, Global Marketing, Lake County, IL
“It’s impossible to separate strategy from execution. You need to set aside time to develop a compelling vision and you need to drive execution. That’s where you see the difference between a good and a great company.” Alex’s career journey has spanned roles in project management all the way to General Manager, VP AbbVie Germany to his current role in the United States as VP of Global Marketing.
Making a World-Wide Impact
Kyle Holen, MD, Head, Development Design Center, Lake County, IL
“We can have such a greater impact because if we bring a new medicine to market, it can help patients worldwide, as opposed to the 20 or so patients we might see in clinic in one day.” Trained as a medical oncologist, Kyle’s focus at AbbVie is finding ways to treat cancers such as devastating glioblastoma brain tumors. He became a physician to help take care of patients, but he came to AbbVie to make an even greater impact.
