    I worked at Lilly UK full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good company to work for only individual.

    Cons

    Management taking decisions in close room without thinking any emotional Impact to field staff. Huge gosspings & corporate politics. People are working on preconceived notions.

    Advice to Management

    Good tenure of working but take care of hard workers.

    Pros

    Good pay and conditions
    Benevolent employer
    Decent offices

    Cons

    Culture changing, no job security at all. Patent cliff approaching, likely to get worse before it gets better. Therefore little opportunity for career growth in IT. Difficult working with US, lots of job protection going on.

    Advice to Management

    Hang in there, try to be as honest as you can with staff - they're not idiots.

  3. "Reorganisation = increased middle management and loss of company cohesion!"

    Pros

    - Good work/life balance (unless there's a deadline to meet, then expect to work until the small hours!)
    - Good location on M3 corridor
    - Some benefits are competitive, such as final salary pension

    Cons

    - Salary benchmarking is poor
    - Career progression is slow and based on who you know, not what you know
    - Performance management process is protracted and does not accurately reflect an individual's merits
    - US centric organisation at the Global level
    - Reorganisation of the company has led to even further resource erosion at the lower levels, but an increase in middle management
    - Company unstable: a further 10% to be slashed from permanent employee numbers, yet the number of contractors continues to rise

    Advice to Management

    Promote the most talented, not the most popular (oh, and mandate fewer e-mails and meetings so more actual work can be achieved!)
