    I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    cost of living is cheap, benefits are great.

    Cons

    lots of bureaucracy, benefits being eliminated, and really hard to move unless you are part of the chosen MQ2020 few, or part of the Irish mafia. They are currently ratcheting up the pain to see if they can get people to leave on their own, so they don't have to pay any severance. Local management has many tools to positively recognize people at no cost to them and the department, however they are either too lazy or too busy to make the effort. It is amazing what person would do for you if they were positively recognized on a regular basis. Because the cost of living is so low in Indiana, there is a huge impediment to leave the company, as no where else will you make this much and pay this little for housing in the pharma industry.

    Advice to Management

    Management routinely ignores their own systems (GQS/ CQP) when it is convenient for them, this will eventually be the downfall of the company. It is especially discouraging when your local management knows nothing about the area/ product and are only there for the rotation thru the area. Its obvious that the managers that have come thru in that situation do not care about the people working for them, and that they are only solely focused on their next move.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Eli Lilly full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coming out of a postdoc Lilly provides great opportunities to grow, learn drug discovery, and still have some opportunity for basic research. They also treat their employees like family and consider them the most important asset. Lastly, the CEO is a scientist, which fosters an environment of faith that the company will be led in the right direction.

    Cons

    Not the best pay compared to local competitors, but it is offset somewhat by other benefits. It seems unlikely that someone starting there career at Lilly will be able to achieve career goals without having to move out of the company.
