Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Smart people, Midwestern work ethic, good long-term pipeline

Cons

Short-term pipeline is weak, another big patent expiration is looming (Cymbalta) and the company tends to value consensus more than strategic leadership.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Eli Lilly and Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. The company works hard to keep employee morle up.

    Cons

    The hoops you have to jumb through to get anything done. Why do I have to call India to tell someone that my computer is acting up? Why cant I just call someone in IT?

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Eli Lilly and Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Made many lifelong friends during my 8 year experience at Lilly

    Cons

    Reps are no longer bonused on own territory but on total DISTRICT performance=lazy reps who just "check the box". No job security-4 layoffs/"reallocations" in past 10 years plus i've seen managers fire good reps over personality conflicts. No raises for 2nd year in a row. They no longer compensate top performers

    Advice to Management

    Compensation model and diabetes use of CAT tool is totally demotivating. Allow geo pods to make targeting decisions at the local level.
