Pros

Enjoyed my customers, liked the less stress sales model (only half as focused on numbers).

Cons

Too much extra work without given the time to complete it. For example, tons of extra learning modules and training/prep time required for meetings, but wasn't given any time to complete it. You end up working on weekends and nights very often.

Advice to Management

Managers all seem to be focused on one thing; how good do they look in front of their Regional Manager. It all seems like a big game. Not very sincere treatment of the reps.

    Pros

    Brilliant coworkers
    Great benefits package
    Flexible schedule
    Renewed focus on innovation and commitment to open office setting
    Beautiful facilities and multiple campuses

    Cons

    A sense of working within a silo
    Communication and bureaucratic breakdowns across cross functional teams
    Redundant work being done across the company due to lack of proper communication

    Advice to Management

    Eli Lilly is a giant machine with multiple moving parts. There is a renewed focus on innovation, but I believe a focus on communication is more important. I would suggest that the leadership at Eli Lilly find an avenue for all employees to share their work and encourage collaboration whenever possible.
