    I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time (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.

    Pros

    Good salary and other benefits.
    Good opportunities for career advancement.
    Opportunities for new experiences and continuous learning.

    Cons

    First-line and middle management often insecure and can be difficult to work with. Can delay advancement for some promising talent.
    Sr. Mgt more willing to embrace new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
