"I've worked for Lilly since 2015, they are a hyper networked organization that regularly gets lost in a value vacuum, disconnected from their end users. With that being said they have a strong scientific organization and a growing portfolio with new leadership trying to challenge the status quo."
"I have worked for Lilly for 15 years. The experience/role satisfaction is very dependent upon which business area/function you work. Some areas are extremely politically charged where leadership teams do not collaborate well, Sr leaders demonstrate poor leadership or even individual behaviors while other areas are much more collaborative, supportive of innovation, Leaders display appropriate behaviors, support their teams and their individual development. I recommend a career experience in functions that are broad in scope such as finance, project management, customer service, marketing that support drug development teams. My advice is to do your homework/networking on the functional leadership before accepting roles in their organizations."
"There is a brain drain going on here. The company is not supporting career development. Half of the workers are more interested in the social aspect and don't work. Others must do the work. People who don't like to work become the managers and they don't have a clue about how things get done."
"It's a big company. The business model establishes a high level of self management for employees. Therefore, the managers can focus on their own personal work. This means they don't pay much attention to who is doing what in their departments. Management struggles to differentiate employees. Typically, everyone gets nearly the same raises and compensation. If you're an above average employee, you won't get recognized for what you do. You'll be better off at another employer. If you're below average, then this is the place for you, because you can coast without management noticing and you'll get the same raise as others."
"I've worked at Lilly since 2001. Management struggles to differentiate employee performance. Typically, most everyone gets the same raise. Like a union environment, an employee is rewarded for average performance. If you are above average in ability, you'll be supporting the raise of others, but could receive better compensation elsewhere. If you're below average, you will be able to get by here. Many co-workers have become unmotivated. If you want to be a top performer, go someplace else. If you're good at networking you'll always have a paycheck, and you can "network" without your supervisor knowing. They don't pay attention."
"I have worked with Lilly from June 2014 to December 2014. Its a great workplace to learn about the Pharma domain. My team was very helpful to help me understand the application quickly and also there are teams to help us understand the policies and new tools by giving training to employees."
