    Pros

    Elanco has profound respect for its customers and employees.

    I worked at Elanco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Culture was once the best thing about this place. It’s quickly changing. Food (headquarters has amazing subsidized food) People (some of the nicest people you will ever meet; not to be confused with management)

    Cons

    Innovation ( company would rather purchase other companies and products than create their own) Leadership ( it literally feels as if we are being ran by a 2 year old child with a tantrum. So much up and down, back and forth, and twists and turns. Accountability (It is a good ol boys club. It is ran as such. The mantra is “Speak up to create change” however when you do.... you are the one who is changed) management is completely chosen based on who likes who and if you fit the current diversity narrative (ie White female in a white male dominated industry) Insurance (health insurance changed and went up once the split form Lilly) Lack of diversity (self explanatory. They use the same minority faces on all media publications because that’s literally all they have) Training ( complete joke. There is literally one guy who trains all new hires in 1 week.) Salary( not competitive)

    Advice to Management

    Push for more training and support.

    I have been working at Elanco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people that are highly competent at the worker and lower levels of management.

    Cons

    The higher people go, the less common sense and accountability exists. Top leaders are paid obscenely, while those getting the real work done are treated as minions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people and get the house in order. The company is being run into the ground, so that Jeff can continue to grow his kingdom at the cost of sales, margin and true growth. Clean up the operations and nail the basics, which are not being done today.
