The management at the office was coaching oriented, you can work with little supervision.

My co-workers are the most respectful and kind people I ever met.

The harder part of the job is the lack of job security because of the industry.

They put a lot of trust on me to deliver different task by myself with little supervision. Traveling to different parts of the country. and making peoples life better.

Major Pharmaceutical Environment
Executive Director (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: highly people oriented. they value their employees and walk it not just talk it.
Cons: risk adverse and highly political environment, everyone was afraid of making a career curbing mistake, difficult to achieve product oriented r&d goals with cutting edge technology.
Progressive in Biological Development in the early days of Biotechnology. For example, they acquired Inulin (human insulin) from Genentech. They were also the first major entity to acquire a monoclonal antibody franchise. During my tenure they had projects such as Protein C development underway.

The environment was risk adverse and highly political. They had a hard time getting projects through development and into the market place.

Majority of my time was enjoyable, stimulating and continuos learning
Sr Medical Education Asst (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INNovember 6, 2014
Pros: helpful dedicated people, relaxed environment, potential for advancement
Cons: change of management structure and style, uncertainty of position elimination, lack of management support
Typical days included follow-up with internal requests for information, external communications, communications and follow-up with vendors, fulfillment of medical education material, set-up and attendance of medical education meetings. Overall management was helpful in providing guidance for growth and encouraged reaching out to other parts of the organization to learn procedures and processes that may benefit our team. The environment was very relaxed and enjoyable to work with any number of people at multiple levels of the organization. The most difficult time was last 12-18 months when management was different which included a totally different view of expectations. Job was not fulfilling which in turn resulted in elimination of my position.

Start in 1982,was great for scientific innovation. By 2004, only Political Science was valued.
Research Scientist (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INNovember 6, 2014
Pros: it was a great place to be from.
Cons: it was a great place to be from
I don't play ping pong. Stress, more stress. The general feeling was that a person must make themselves look better by making someone else look worse.

Management only hears what they want to hear - facts are considered to be irrelevent nuisances to be dispensed of.

On a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest):
Pharmaceutical SCIENCE - 1
Political SCIENCE - 10

Historically a Strong Employer in Indianapolis, Indiana
Manager (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INOctober 24, 2014
I have worked at Eli Lilly and Company for 10 years and have overall enjoyed the ups and downs that have come with a pharmaceutical company. I have had strong leadership and great developmental support. Currently, the organization is flattening out. This will lead to fewer opportunities to advance and meet both personal and professional goals.
