What is health insurance like at Eli Lilly and Company?

Pros

Excellent people from a variety of countries and cultures. Very good health insurance and pension benefits.

Cons

Very poor career progression unless you are in the "right" circle of management. No transparency in their promotions system. They advocate diversity and inclusion when in reality what they mean is conformity and inclusion only if you you buy into all management's ideas of development by visibility and not by actual performance.

Advice to Management

To senior management: start selecting real leaders as managers who really put people first and fully respect their employees.

Very good health insurance and pension benefits.

Does Eli Lilly and Company offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

Absolutely amazing company culture - far better than any other company I've ever worked for. Great MBA tuition reimbursement program as well

Cons

Compensation is somewhat low, but made up for in my opinion by Indy's low cost of living and strong tuition reimbursement program. The finance roles did not seem particularly challenging. Somewhat monotonous cycle of planning, forecasting, and reporting.

Advice to Management

Continue emphasizing the strong culture. Lilly is an amazing company

What is the retirement plan like at Eli Lilly and Company?

Pros

Great products, respect and product/representative need from customers, solid employees and sales representatives, most lower managers look out for their employees, good vacation, holidays, 401k match, pension, and overall benefits.

Cons

Upper management no longer seems to seek and value feedback from sales representatives, which is very different from the culture of the past. Our pay is low compared to others in the industry inclusive of incentive compensation, and the promotion process for sales is laughable.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, epsecially those who face your customers. We are the face of Lilly, and if we are not engaged, properly incentivized and compensated, the company as a whole can not see success in the future. You are your employees. Take the obstacles away and let us focus on promoting the phenomenal medicines that we have to help patients!
