Current Employee - Operation Technician in Indianapolis, IN
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great people from mid level managers down. Lilly still has the ability to make a difference in the lives of people.

Cons

Poor executive management, poor loyalty for employees, compensation and benefits are unremarkable at this point. All and all the company has been managed into a run of the mill pharma company. Very sad!

Advice to Management

Business majors run businesses and chemistry majors run labs. Never the two should meet. Failed business plans and a lack of vision has created an environment of fear. No longer is the free flow of ideas the norm. Instead people just want to make the next cut of job layoffs.

    Pros

    The good things about Eli Lilly are that they have an established market presence, good networking opportunities if you try, and generally nice people who are willing to have coffee with you and chat about life and business.

    Cons

    Some positions are assigned a lot more work than they should have. I saw many people who have too many assignments that they might as well have been paid 2 times their current pay. The salary is not the top of the line, and you must get used to the location because you won't be traveling much for most of their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Management should consider alternative ways approaching the high R&D structure experienced by pharmaceutical companies in general. Growth opportunities should be expanded.

    Vacation Time
    Low expectations

    Advice to Management

    Expectations are sometimes extremely high due to the lack support they give you. Running a process and improving it isn't hard. It all the extra projects that they sometimes give you, that is too much.
