    I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have a decent severance program

    Cons

    The culture has changed tremendously

    Advice to Management

    Since our entire division was demolished I have no advice as every division works independently

    I worked at Eli Lilly full-time

    Pros

    Discounted services, chance to work with animals

    Cons

    Doctors are husband/wife, coworkers, co-owners, parents- essentially they are together too much and drag all of their problems into work with them. Never is there a day where bith are smiling. Dogs die during routine spay. Doctor is never pleased with employee performance. Doctors choose favorites.

    Pros

    A company that's making a big difference in the lives of many.
    Very warm, friendly culture
    Pays very well

    Cons

    Slow to change
    Resort to layoffs very quickly instead of riding out the storm

    Advice to Management

    It takes people to get out of a slump. If every time you're in a slump you lay off people, how is that helping you long-term?

    Pros

    The People at Lilly are amazing. They truly go out of there way for others. It is very much like a family.

    Cons

    Lily is going through some challenging times right now. Certain business units are struggling due to loss of product exclusivity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep patients at the center of everything you do. I also appreciate the "respect for people" during tough times.

    I worked at Eli Lilly full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive salary, excellent culture, treated with respect as an individual. Hard work and impact is rewarded. Long term growth is available.

    Cons

    The model of pharmaceuticals is somewhat outdated. Customer access has dwindled with the rise of integrated health care systems. Layoffs are frequent and there is a lot of instability.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that you do everything you can to keep top performers. Many average employees are able to stick around because of geographical location. In high population areas, bottom performing reps need to be let go in place in higher performing reps.

    Advice to Management

    None
