Senior Engineer

What do you like about working at Eli Lilly and Co.?

"Compensation package."

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

"If you like politics, backstabbing while leaving a blood trail in your career path, you should consider working for Eli Lilly-PR."

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."

"Beware of Human Resources and their illusory claims of concern for the employee. This is a hidden ruse to acquire your naive trust of them. In reality HR is just another Judas, behind the scenes proponent for management that will do anything to defend management's corrupt devices at your expense."

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

"They are dishonest and without integrity! They stole my 401K retirement matching funds which amounted to $45000.
