Pros

Established company with a long history of innovation
Indianapolis offices reflect a "collegial" feel
The upper management and leadership is saying all the right things to promote a refreshed, innovative ecosystem, but it doesn't always translate to individuals in the trenches

Cons

Can be bureaucratic and there's a recognition of "Lilly tax"
Internal communications

    Pros

    Great place for sucking up. If you can swallow your pride you can do well. Good place to gain experience then move on.

    Cons

    Micromanaged beyond belief. Ambiguous and contradictory policies and procedures that can and will be used against you. Often working for someone who knows little about your job. Older employees are not valued. When you reach a point where your age and service time makes it less attractive to leave (golden-handcuffs) raises are shut off and they find any excuse to reduce your bonus. Performance management and the bell curve causes much backstabbing and false information.

    Advice to Management

    Quit micromanaging. Cut out the management fat. We could do as well with 2/3's less management. Start valuing older employees. Ditch the performance management BS. It's extremely unfair if you work in a small department or workgroup.
