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

Pros

Lilly values are shared broadly and I believe truly believed by a majority of management. Just look at the way the company handled divestment of assets and redundancies. You will always have disgruntled employees who blame others. however, with Lilly being the 4th company I have worked for, the grass is indeed greener here.

Cons

The culture can be too nice and lack transparency at times

Advice to Management

Be honest and transparent with your direct reports. People can take bad news, even the "exemplary" performers that are heroes in their own minds. Allowing someone to believe they are top performers when they are only meeting expectations won't help the organization long term.

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

    Pros

    Decent career development for aggressive sales professional
    Run your business as you see fit

    Cons

    Respect for people is true only if you fit in their plan.
    Pipeline is all hot air. No new products
    New products are weak. Washouts and measurement from placebo vs. baseline in trials.

    Advice to Management

    You have a hard time determining who the truly talented are. You better find mid-level leadership to right this ship because it is SUBSTANTIALLY lacking in both sales and marketing.
