    Although conservative, a fantastic company to work for with integrity and a real family atmosphere

    Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative (Former Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsGood base salaries, treats employees very well, upper management is accessible, even as a sales rep with no office still felt very much a part of my sales team, truly care about employees both inside and outside of work, excellent enrichment training as volunteer opportunities

    ConsVery difficult to get promoted, if looking for a company with an aggressive sales approach this one is not for you

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake promotional process a little shorter

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A wonderful company to work for that has great benefits

    Senior Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsLilly was a great company to work for. They had many opportunities for personal growth and their benefits were outstanding. Salary was great for the industry and there were opportunities for bonus.

    ConsThe headquarters are in Indianapolis Indiana so you have to deal with winter. The promotion process can be difficult at times. It is a large company so change can be time consuming.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement tends to forget where they came from and how difficult it makes life on employees when they are so disconnected.

    Love this company, for the most part!

    Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsGreat benefits and salary, and work/life balance. Love the patient focus culture, the balance between results and relationship building is great. The team goals are a great way to split the weight between each team. Great drugs and support from corporate.

    ConsEngagement with some teams is lacking. No bonuses this year, no pay increase.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTie in corporate a little more with the field. It's also difficult to hear that we can make our own business decisions, yet we have to increase our calls per day? I thought it was quality over quantity? The focused is changed so much.
