    I worked at Eli Lilly full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, descent pay, good crews to work with.

    Cons

    Dont rock the boat, challenge authority in any way, they will fire you for it...forget the President's message to speak up-be bold- challenge the status-quo...it will just get you fired. Very slow upward mobility...forget work life balance...they will work you like a dog and think nothing of it...supervision sits on their hands and collects unlimited overtime while the trogs do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Check your down lines- don't drink the kool-aid-don't believe what your being told by your middle managers..its all crap-they're getting paid well for the great hair cuts and nice clothes..but they are deceiving you. Do your own checking, if you have the courage to follow your own edict- Talk to the people actually "doing" the work and listen to them...they are the only ones who truly know the truth!!

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

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, good culture and good people. Good facilities.

    Cons

    Engineering & Technical jobs can be very, very stressful. Way too much validation & qualification requirements for manufacturing - far beyond what is really required by FDA. Not many promotional opportunities these days, and stock options have been worthless for many years. Too much of a youth culture for management. Management candidates are chosen very early - and fast-tracked while others are "left behind."
