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 5 years

    Pros

    Great products, great fun, some good counterparts. Very easy work, great family-life balance for a great paycheck.

    Cons

    Management LIES, LIES, LIES to employees. Management does NOT understand HR law, and what is allowed and is not. They have no problem showing their stupidity on this. Most managers have been out for themselves in self promotion rather than supporting their team. Company is about to re-organize, so now EVERYONE is looking out for themselves and NOT for their team. Being paid as a team and not individually for bonuses. Poor choice.

    Counterparts will ofter stick a knife in your back rather than work with you. if they run to management to complain before you do, it's your career that will be re-evaluated, not theirs. Stupid high school stuff is allowed to go on.

    Pays less than other companies in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Lying!! Learn the laws that apply to HR and Management, because clearly they are unknown.
