good place to work
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Clinton, INNovember 30, 2017
I enjoyed the culture and the people there for the past 25 years, it is fast paced and at time hard work. the new LEAN process that was implemented just before I retired is not good for the maintenance group because it reduced headcount and it made it even harder to manage an already large backlog of work.

Sucked the life out of me most days
Associate Consultant Process/Technology-FDE (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 22, 2017
Manager was inexperienced and didn't back up his employees. When other employees where given the opportunity to take early retirement, it just meant more work for the remaining folks even though executives and upper management said it would not.

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Binghamton, NYNovember 21, 2017
Great company to work for. They do not pay as much as some of their competitors but they truly care about work-life balance and offer several other perks such as a pension plan that other companies do not.

Not the Lilly of old
Senior Biologist (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 21, 2017
The change in the culture at Lilly in the 20 years has been astounding. Lilly would not recognize the company today. To gain promotions, you have to walk on water. No loyalty and they don't value experience because they can hire the young and dumb and work them until they burn out.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
Company culture

Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 20, 2017
Lilly is currently in the midst of a transformation. Change is happening quickly and different part of the organizations are being impacted more than others. Strategically, the company has made some tough but necessary decisions. If pipeline delivers, Lilly should be in a position of power over the next 5-10 years relative to their competitors.
Pros
Ceo, Career Development, Opportunities
Cons
Poor Managers, Below avg pay

Difficult times
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 15, 2017
I have learned a lot working for Lilly but it is not the fun collaborative place it used to be. It feels like work now. Benefits have been continually cut and opportunities are far and few between. It is still a good place to work but I'm not sure for how much longer.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Poor management in some cases, drive to do more with less, you have to work in Corporate to be considered an expert.

Highly collaborative environment with great problem solving and creativity efforts
Formulation Associate (Current Employee) –  Branchburg, NJNovember 8, 2017
The workplace is conducive to new ideas and applications. Colleagues are committed to getting things done and are passionate about their work.

I work in an environment where productivity is high, and the employees have a sense of commitment. I work with a strong team and where the members have a strong sense of camaraderie and a good work ethic.

Management is very open to new ideas and rewards employees for a job well done.

The most enjoyable part is completing a project on time and seeing all the hard work come to fruition.
