    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Eli Lilly full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits and salary comparable to other pharma companies - at least, until you figure out that it's 39.25 hours MINIMUM that they expect you to work - and yes, they will pile on the work to get you to do a lot more than the requisite weekly hours.

    Cons

    Apparently working an efficient/effective 8-hour day is insufficient, so in essence, one is paid for a 39.25 hour week but expected to put in 50+ hours. Work/life balance? Complete joke - they only pay it lip service. Also, they have the nasty habit of railroading people, by giving (biased and unfair) performance management reviews, in order to get them to quit, so that permanent positions can be re-allocated as contract positions without benefits. The culture is reactive rather than proactive (though they continuously tout the benefits of being "proactive" in finding "Answers that matter"), so one is seemingly constantly fighting little fires (real or manufactured emergencies).

    Advice to Management

    Is there any point to give them any? I guess I would say, don't even bother with HR exit interviews - I highly doubt that any feedback is reviewed, considered or used anyway, at any time.


  2. "Not good not bad"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot to contribute and to do.

    Cons

    Lower salary than industry average, no chance for progression, corporate politics

    Advice to Management

    Eradication of Bureaucracy. Also, the aged old processes should be stopped and new ones to be created rather than existing processes improved.
