I worked at Eli Lilly full-time for more than a year

Pros

The salary and bonus structure definitely rewards a successful territory.

Cons

This is not a 9-5 position. Most nights and weekends are consumed with training, computer reports, etc.

No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Decent salaries in an inexpensive part of country

    Cons

    Managers do not manage their groups -- which contributes to inefficiencies and frustration within a group. Culture of arrogance, petty meanness and deceit flourishes way more than I have seen at my two previous companies. Poor training. Performance management process is a joke. Employees get pigeonholed into certain jobs -- practically impossible to get out of a specific job. So never hire on unless you really love the job being offered to you. Product pipeline is drying up rapidly -- soon there will be nothing to sell.

    Pros

    Great products and compensation with the ability to succeed

    Cons

    Stressful and driven. Success was often welcomed with a question about what you were doing next.
