    I worked at Eli Lilly for more than a year

    Pros

    It's been around forever. Family feel. Great diabetes pipeline.

    Cons

    Lots of changes going on in pharma. Last year they laid off a huge percentage of the sales force and the attrition rates since then have been pretty bad.

  2.  

    Good company to grow your career

    I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Coming out of a postdoc Lilly provides great opportunities to grow, learn drug discovery, and still have some opportunity for basic research. They also treat their employees like family and consider them the most important asset. Lastly, the CEO is a scientist, which fosters an environment of faith that the company will be led in the right direction.

    Cons

    Not the best pay compared to local competitors, but it is offset somewhat by other benefits. It seems unlikely that someone starting there career at Lilly will be able to achieve career goals without having to move out of the company.
