    I have been working at Eli Lilly and Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The quality of people you work with is exceptional. The culture is patient focused and team oriented. For the most part fairly stable

    Cons

    Company claims respect for people but that definition only applies as they see fit. Recent reorganizations have been done very sloppy and without the usual respect for people.

    I worked at Eli Lilly and Company part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people who Lilly hires are exceptional and great to work with. They are passionate about patients and want to make a difference. They all want the projects to succeed and its rare that you find someone who is uncooperative.

    They offer lots of opportunity to try new things and are supportive of people's personal career growth, especially if you show promise.

    Cons

    They have been bound up with their processes, which are much too cumbersome
    and detailed so have lost their competitive edge. They need to seriously pare their processes down before it puts them out of business.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline, streamline, streamline. Every decision shouldn't have to reviewed and approved by every single member of management.
