Work & Life Balance


Senior Project Engineer in Manassas, VA
on March 15, 2017
Hands Down the Best Company
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.

Very good company to work for. Dynamic, professional and safe environment. You learn a lot and people are very respectful. Highly diverse workplace and the company cares a lot about you as a person.

1. moving up is hard. there's this old school expectation of having to jump through the same hoops senior leadership jumped through just to move to the next position (as if you can't move at your own, quicker, pace) a sort of "I had to do it in 3 years so so do you mentality..." 2. they do welcome and prefer in house job filling3. yearly bonuses are fantastic 4. most enjoyable part would have to be the work-life balance and flexibility for time off5. there's often a sense of "i'm better than you" hierarchy based on your title6. management does do their part in getting you ready to move to the next position...when they are ready to let you go. It's all on their time.

Good place to work. Benefits and vacation are generous. The Management is inconsistent- Over my 15 years at Lilly, I had GREAT managers that really took care of me and one that was horrible and wanted things run her way or the highway.

It depends where you work but overall they pay you better than other industries, most likely they will also make you work more. Personally they worked me to the ground. Even when on vacation, always had something to do. I was called in to do work on Christmas day and other holidays.Company hides behind empty slogans. They think if they say things and force you to include them in your annual plan, it will happen. Very high stress, place is full of people that try to claw themselves up and waiting for retirement. The more you scream the better. Last year they included more layers of management that are worthless. They try to intimidate and take the 'stick' approach.The systems you need to work with are chaotic least to say. Need to constantly work around problems that have because they are greedy and don't want to fix. No documentation. Professional improvement is very little to none. Almost every year the budget is cut. Even in the years you can take classes no one guides you about what you should do. They say you own your plan, meaning you are alone to figure out everything. .ost likely you will not have time to take off to learn something because you have so much work to do.Overall, greedy company and on the long run it was very bad for my career and stress level.
