100 Best Companies 2020-AbbVie
Courtesy of AbbVieCourtesy of AbbVie

    AbbVie manufactures the world’s best-selling drug, Humira. That single product brings in close to $20 billion in sales across the globe. But the company’s workers tout the biotech’s other riches, such as concierge services for new parents for those mundane but necessary day-to-day tasks, such as food delivery and laundry drop-off. Multiple employees praise the robust and flexible nature of AbbVie’s parenting policies. That includes the ability to transition from full-time work to a job share, not to mention pension and profit-sharing programs. Read the Great Place to Work review.
