    I worked at Eli Lilly full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice salary, been in PR. Benefits were good and bonuses were great. No supervisor looking over your shoulder if you gain respect and trust from them. Nice use of systems like SAP and Trackwise, electronic batch records, etc.

    Cons

    Some people laid back doing nothing while I had to stay extra time to cover those employees lack of professionalism. Too much meetings without results. HR is there, but just to serve management.

    Advice to Management

    Too many supervisors and managers doing good money and not working.

    Pros

    Love the company. Love the products. Love everything lilly stands up.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity to move up in the company and increase salary. In order to get your salary to be comparable to other companies, especially if selling an injectable, you almost have to go to another company instead of just being loyal and staying put. This is my only con for me entire time being with Lilly.
