What don't you like about working at Eli Lilly and Co.?

"Direct supervisors do not devise a clear career path, specially if you could become a professional challenge later in their career. This includes HR. Performance evaluation program is not based in meeting your goals, rather in the appreciation of what your supervisor thinks you should have done different. Mentoring was non existent. Bureaucracy dominates the decision making process instead of empowering employees to pursue the best solution possible for the issues. Too many people to do the same job. Everybody knew who was the under performer but nobody wanted to take action, confront and solve the issue through the channels."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Manage by walking. Leave their desks and go to the floor. Listen to employees, respect their opinions and diversity. Enforce confidentiality for sensitive issues."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
