    I worked at Eli Lilly and Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great-paying jobs with good benefits.

    Cons

    Working for a company that is pushing the LGBTQ agenda in Indiana, through our state legislature and in K-12 schools.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the left-wing political stuff. Take the money you're using on lobbying in Indy and bribing our schools and invest in low-cost wellness/fitness centers to improve the health of all Hoosiers.
