Overall Reviews at Eli Lilly

Instructional Designer | Indianapolis, IN | Feb 14, 2020
The Good, The Bad and the Ugly of Lilly
The Good: I enjoyed my time at Lilly. There are a lot of good people I worked with Lilly pays well and does have a good work environment overall. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Eli Lilly as a company and the legacy of charity work here in Indianapolis and worldwide. In these areas you are awesome! Most mid level managers are great to work for. Great Company! The Bad: Work load is way lower than what it should be and to be candid, I was surprised how little the average Lilly employee does on the average day. I would estimate 30% of the work expected by other profession positions in a medical of pharma business model. I do not let the low expectation of work volume dictate my work ethic. I believe you can ask for more from your team. Be fair as you evaluate, inspect what you expect.The leadership as a whole is not engaged either in line level nor process. Lead by example and keep looking forward to your shared future and not your share futures! Quit managing every decision by your short term stock prices and your self serving Lilly stock options. Long term planning is key and spend less on adverting to influence doctors and more research funding on your future which help people have better live! The Ugly: You have an opportunity to work hard, but do not expect to be rewarded or managers to take notice of it. This should be a wake up call, you will fail as a company if you are drowning in mediocrity. There is a huge atmosphere of nepot...more

Eli Lily Workday
This job was a pleasant opportunity. The day would typically begin with video conference room regular meetings scheduled in the morning with Eli Lilly's Indianapolis location and a check of the outlook calendar to identify any non regular scheduled conference meetings. After completing this task, I would review my email to identify any service request that needed attention and contact these employees to determine the best time to provide support for these issues. Next I would need to review any new hire or refresh tasks for computer new computer deployment. After it was determined the number of computers that would need to be setup, I would begin imaging and installing any additional software beyond the basic image that were requested and needed by the scientist receiving new computers. I would then contact the employees regarding the delivery of these computers. I also had regular request for basic printer support issues and contact vendors for more complex issues to schedule service appointments to repair the designated printer. We also had the responsibility of receiving shipments and sending shipments via the shipping receiving departments in the building. There would also be situations when bench tech laptop repair was also needed. This would be the typical responsibilities of a normal day at Eli Lilly.

Self-preservation attitude
My initial experience was fantastic: Intelligent, supportive, fun-loving team, relevant training, fair compensation that matched my effort and drive, I met and exceeded goals, and had a genuinely kind, super DM. Then came the change in upper management: Several hundreds of employees laid off due to poor planning and siloed lines of business left even those of 25+ years stunned with an overwhelming sense of betrayal with abrupt, unexpected notice the relationships are over. Left was a company that continued to unfairly evaluate performance, adjust territories and related AEs, and aggressively trend toward letting go older employees and replace them with astounding numbers of new college graduates with nominal experience. It's too bad, I loved my job and serving HCPs and patients. I do not miss the drama, fearful environment, untrustworthy and vindictive teammates, or self-righteous company that I felt didn't really care about it's employees at all. Nonetheless, I am grateful for the opportunity in many ways, and pray that God guides this company to behave in the best interest of patients and their families who are counting on integrity and science to achieve better outcomes for those Lilly serves.

Good place to work, great benefits. Loved it!
It was good whem I was there but I worked with a couple guys that were very difficult to work with. It could had been possible that they looked at me as a contract employee so they felt superior. It was said that other women had that position and they dealt with the same problem from these two. I resigned at that time, but I was not truly satisfied with that decision but I needed the peace.I felt belittled and I felt I could had been more productive during my training but I thought it was best. The supervision was good they did not put a lot of pressure on you , they wanted you to learn the job and be good at it. They offered many training classes and welcomed our input. Today I look back I really wish I had not resigned because I really liked that job it was very interesting. When I left the exit interview showed me how caring this company is, they wanted to make sure that I was not harassed or pushed out in any way, they made me feel special and appreciated. I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked Eli Lilly, A great place to work.

Fun, teachable, respectable job
While I was At Eli Lilly, I had a mostly enjoyable experience. I was expected to perform at a higher than normal level due to my military experience and I thrived in the environment. My Management was sub par at best except for 1 manager was prior service as well. He was my go to guy to get stuff done. The work place culture was lax. everybody just did what they were supposed to do at their own pace. It made for an easy going workplace. The hardest part of my job was dealing with the people that didnt want to the be there and didnt want to do any work. The fact that my job was put on hold because 1 other person decided that they didnt want to work today really frustrated me. The most enjoyable part of my job was the new computer day. We would get in a couple of skids worth of computers and we would have to unbox them, put the battery in, label then with a bar code, and then cut down and dispose of the box. This was my favorite part since I could put my head phones in and just work. I wasnt held back by other people on these days and I enjoyed it.
Administrative Assistant | Indianapolis, IN | Nov 25, 2018
Administrative Assistant
Eli Lilly is an excellent company to work for. The companies commitment to diversity and inclusion is what drew me to the company and it has continued to expand their inclusion programs and acknowledge the different cultures within the workforce. Benefits are really great. Health, Vision and dental benefits are among the best I've experienced. Excellent time off benefits: Vacation, sick time, personal time, bereavement, maternity, etc. Unfortunately, management and the overall Administrative Service department is lacking a lot of direction and connection with the Administrative assistants in the group. My manager in particular is very unorganized does not provide accurate information and often creates issues within the group. Micro-managing is a huge pain point in our group. The disconnect between the ASC and the departments that the Admins support is vast and there have been no efforts to bridge that gap.

ConsManagement within Administrative Services(ASC)

Excellent company overall
Generally I think my experience at Eli Lilly and Company was positive overall. I worked on interesting projects with dedicated smart co-workers. The level of science and integrity is top notch. My managers gave me a lot of autonomy to perform my job. The company prides itself on the numbers of female middle managers. Many (but not all) of these women I reported to over the years were incompetent managers. Because Lilly is located in Indianapolis, people tend to stay with the company for a longer period of time than for East or West Coast pharma companies, resulting in a conservative, risk-adverse culture when it comes to embracing new ideas. There is a strong unconscious bias towards people with some background in Indiana (eg- went to college, grew up here) when it comes to getting plum work assignments and hence, promotions.
Prosstable, good pay and benefits, smart colleagues, great focus on science
ConsLimited opportunities to advance or get pay raises in the past few years.

Lilly is a wonderful company
I have worked for Lilly for 7 years. It is an amazing company. They have amazing benefits, flexible work schedule and the people are beyond nice. I have the luxury of working from home for the past 7 years and, despite this, have grown my career at Lilly tremendously. This is a company that rewards talent and hard work. I have been fortunate to work with other engaged and hard working people that are passionate about their jobs and believe in the company's mission. Many of my colleagues have become my friends over the years. My department was fortunate to have a lot of autonomy and were, as a result, able to make significant process improvements which enabled us to deliver the portfolio successfully. I also had the pleasure of interacting with a myriad of other department and had time and the opportunity to learn and understand their processes.

Sales Intern | Tallahassee, FL | May 31, 2018
Work at your pace.
Typical day at work: Identify the customer route for that day and set up the order in which you will visit customers. Review any notes from the prior conversation while finding relevant product information that will answer any questions and concerns about products they deal with. I learned how to balance a portfolio of products; when it is appropriate to cross-promote and introduce new information that will benefit both the doctor and patient; how to carry on a conversation on a bi-weekly basis; how pharmacy formularies affect the patients and how much access they have to our products; analyzing trends using CRM, TRx, and BRx creating a quartly, monthly, and weekly plan to ultimately secure and grow market share. Management gives you independence but also makes time to track progress. Helps strengthen weak areas and highlights your strongs areas. Workplace culture is driven by integrity. Hardest part of the job is work-life balance.

If you're a favorite of management, whether deserved or not, yearly. If you're not a favorite of management, once every 7+ yrs.
Answered Dec 8, 2017
Seven years I was rated #1 in my division. Seven years I received SD performance review grade. Seven years I did not receive one cent in raise. You do the math. Only if you are one of the "chosen few" pals of the top management will you receive a raise.
