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

Pros

Lilly values are shared broadly and I believe truly believed by a majority of management. Just look at the way the company handled divestment of assets and redundancies. You will always have disgruntled employees who blame others. however, with Lilly being the 4th company I have worked for, the grass is indeed greener here.

Cons

The culture can be too nice and lack transparency at times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and transparent with your direct reports. People can take bad news, even the "exemplary" performers that are heroes in their own minds. Allowing someone to believe they are top performers when they are only meeting expectations won't help the organization long term.

    Train managers well so they don't have to micro-manage or be afraid of new talent.
    Sr. Management needs to be more in touch with what Jr. Mgt is doing.
