I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Global company with tremendous opportunities to work across the value chain. Well compensated in an area of the US where cost of living is extremely affordable. A desire to make an impact for patients - excellent sense of purpose.

Cons

Midwest, conservative culture that can be slow to adapt and change. Sometimes we let ourselves be ruled by our history and values rather than using them to better advantage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shake the trees some and get rid of those who are hesitant to change their thinking. We are held hostage at times by those who are here just for a good retirement.

    I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good salary and beneifits. Very transparent communicators. Employees are very proactive about resolving problems. Employees are very customer service oriented with both internal and external business partners.

    Cons

    Lilly lost Zyprexa patent and many employees lost their jobs in 2011. Lilly is thinning out the employee population again in 2013 due to loss of Cymbalta patent and Evista. No company workforce reduction plan is in place for 2013. It's currently up to each organization to find ways to cut expenses. I've lost 3 out of 4 job assignments in the past 5 years.
