I worked at Eli Lilly

Pros

The benefits and relocation packages are great, until you file your taxes, be very careful with that. All kinds of little psychological tests to manipulate through the process, be aware or be gone.

Cons

There is a very inbred mentality going all the way back to Eli himself. Self sacrifice is a given, what less would a Civil War hero demand. However, I sometimes wondered whose side he was on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the science back into this company or it will fail in our lifetimes. It's just so completely number and business oriented now - but you need a certain critical mass of 1. Science and 2. Honesty

    Pros

    Respect for people and opportunities to grow in multiple professional areas and make contributions.

    Cons

    Lately, the environment has become very short term focused with looming patent expirations. The senior leadership hasn't been able to fill the pipeline gap and some of the executives are bringing on people just like them so that no one can challenge them. Takes too long to make any decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on results and cut bonuses at the VP level until some new medicines are launched!
