    Pros

    Interesting problems to work on and input of associates is welcomed by most of the higher level scientists. Teamwork is valued, as is safety.

    Cons

    Projects never die at Lilly. Managers seem incapable of "killing" them so scientists are freed to work on new targets. Far too much time is spent on ePM and because of the layoffs people are constantly looking over their shoulders wondering "Is my group going to be next?" There is no trust with upper management. And the company is very bloated at the top. In addition, there are meetings to prepare for meetings which is a huge waste of time for all concerned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of a lot of your middle level management. You don't need as many people as you have in those roles. Let the data speak for itself and kill projects when data indicates it isn't going anywhere. Furthermore, stop advancing the first molecule to get through all the hurdles. Instead, advance those molecules that truly ARE the best for a given target. Stop the outsourcing to China & India. They don't value intellectual property and it is only going to hurt the Lilly brand.
