    I have been working at Lilly UK

    Pros

    These people really do care. Every year they focus on ensuring the employees know their objectives, understand them, have a development plan, don't get too frustrated... The effort spent on people is huge (if not talking about salaries or bonuses).

    Cons

    Objectives cannot be met just because is "nice working here", so management have realised they have to change the way they operate. Innovation and risk taking may be the key, but you have to be prepared, and you have to be bold and brave. Current management got to their positions developing other competencies not related to bravery... so Lilly ends up being a company focused in change, but not daring to do it!

    I have been working at Lilly UK full-time

    Pros

    On balance, good people earnest in their approach who want the best for patients. Mature environment that allows for flexible working. Global company, with opportunities to work with colleagues across geographies.

    Cons

    Middle management is poor, exceptionally so in some cases. These individuals display no leadership, offer no mentoring or development support to their teams, and in my view lack the competence to apply themselves properly to their roles. High turnover (for reasons above?) US-centric. Opportunities for progression are limited.

    Pros

    Legacy of greatness, people centric. People wanting to stay for their entire career. History of respect for people, and high values.

    Cons

    Wrecked, all loyalty gone. People that want to leave are made to stay, good people forced to leave who want to stay. If you play the game, and are diverse enough you may be given an expanded role for no additional reward. Very US centric, zero career profession anywhere else.
