    Pros

    These people really do care. Every year they focus on ensuring the employees know their objectives, understand them, have a development plan, don't get too frustrated... The effort spent on people is huge (if not talking about salaries or bonuses).

    Cons

    Objectives cannot be met just because is "nice working here", so management have realised they have to change the way they operate. Innovation and risk taking may be the key, but you have to be prepared, and you have to be bold and brave. Current management got to their positions developing other competencies not related to bravery... so Lilly ends up being a company focused in change, but not daring to do it!

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about change and innovations and do it!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lilly UK (Windlesham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Good communication prior to interview. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere in the office.
    The day consisted of 2 formal interviews, each with two different members of the team, an informal lunch and a site tour. It lasted 4.5 hours in total.

      Worked in a team; managed a number of projects/tasks at one time; started working on something in a particular way and then realised that perhaps it's not the best way of doing it
