    Still an okay place to work, good benefits, okay pay, but almost nonexistant opportunity for advancement

    Pros

    Benefits are good, pay is decent, and Lilly generally allows a good work-life balance. Depending on an individual's role and area, one may have opportunitites to develop oneself by taking on special projects in other areas. For example, an engineer in manufacturing may have an opportunity to work on a Six Sigma project or work on a project in Procurement. Ownership of many priorities and initiatives has been driven down to a lower level than several years ago.

    Lilly is an important member of the Indianapolis community and contributes to many charitable causes.

    Cons

    Due to the planned significant downsizing, the opportunity for advancement is nearly nonexistant at this time. Most people aren't given promotions and opportunities, as certain 'chosen' individuals are given new positions and promotions even when less qualified or experienced. Additionally, politics play into many decisions at Lilly, as the preferred employees are allowed to work on higher-profile and less mundane projects, but these projects are often less critical to the success of the business than many day-to-day responsibilties which are pushed onto the average employees. The preferred employees are then often moved out and into a new role within a year or two without having made significant contributions to the area.

    Lilly's products are largely coming off patent in the next few years, and there are not new products to replace these lost revenues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward and recognize employees who are giving their all on a daily basis but aren't receiving raises, promotions or opportunities. Also, ensure Lilly is not putting all eggs in one basket, and do not rely on the hope that the pipeline will come to fill in the revenues lost due to the patent cliff. Explore alternatives such as generics, diagnostics, etc.

    Not a minority friendly company. Lot's of biases if you are not from Indiana.
