Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – March 15, 2017
No wonder why Lilly has been there for a long time. Eli Lilly really live by the saying that "the workforce is the most valued asset of the company". When Lilly closed the facility I was part of, they offered me any open position I wanted and even a lower position without experience. Lilly would protect my current pay for the first three years while I gain the required experience. This kind of loyalty while they offered an awesome severance package should I decide to leave the company. The mistake I made is that I left because of geographical preference to stay on the east coast. I wish I could rejoin Eli Lilly. If you have an opportunity to join Lilly, please accept the offer, you will be glad to work for this wonderful organization.

Great work environment but very low salary for most pharmacist positions.
GLOBAL PRODUCT SAFETY CLINICAL ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 16, 2018
Lilly has a great work environment. Good managers and Team Leaders. Lots of opportunities for promotion or job transfers if you were interested. However, salary for pharmacists was quite a bit lower than retail, hospital, or clinical.
Consultant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 14, 2018
There are opportunities to do some amazing things and contribute to the greater good. The benefits are great and the people are very talented. Enterprise-level initiatives are definitely going in the right direction. However, although company is working to make strides on Diversity and Inclusion, it will take time for all employees at all levels to feel valued and open to share their ideas. Challenging the status quo, even if it is for the greater good, is more risky than it should be in the current environment. Some supervisors are absolutely amazing with their employees - supportive and helpful toward their success. However, in general, supervisors have too much power over their employees, so for those who are not open to hearing alternative ideas to their own, it can lead to employees feeling/being 'punished' for sharing a different perspective. I've experienced both types of supervisors here.
Excellent benefits, no time for rest after overseas travel or excess overtime

Post-Doctoral Scientist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 26, 2018
Eli Lilly is a great place to work. The culture is friendly and conducive to good research. With a new CEO the company has also taken up several steps to be more competitive in the market and bring better and newer drugs in the pipeline. The company also has great health and wellness benefits, with an on-site fitness center and physical therapy center, counseling services, clinic, pharmacy etc.
Great work/life balance, good benefits, respect for individuals
Ineffective communication between different departments
Recruiting Assistant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 26, 2018
Reputable Company; Great Benefits; Advancement Opportunities. Most people that work here are there on a long term basis. The only downfall is once the contracted assignment is complete you are unable to work for the company 6 months.
Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 24, 2018
Awesome job if you are looking to make your own business plans, own hours, and own schedule. It is a challenging role in the aspect of pharmaceutical knowledge and a sales learning curve, but can be worth-while post training.

Full Stack Developer (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 18, 2018
Talks of the desired transition toward Scrum and Team Lilly mentality, but in actuality remains steadfast to its management's prevailing bureaucratic cutthroat and backstabbing legacy mentality and practices covered up by the notion of being a conservative company that brings on more contractors than it even has employees so Lilly keeps its good name as it uses and abuse its contractors and abandons them without any method of appeal.
Company sells you everything on-site, Amenities
Company sells you everything on-site, Bureaucracy, Contract companies
Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 18, 2018
Less flexibility over work times. Too much macro-management. Work-life balance is good, but chances of progress is limited. If you are self-motivated, you can learn many things. Many sessions are organized periodically at company's expense.
