I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eli Lilly and Company (Philadelphia, PA (US)) in September 2019.
More specifically, this was at Avid Pharma (Philadelphia) which is now Eli Lilly. My interviewers were not ideal. Only the hiring manager was familiar with the skills required for the role. The remaining interviewers were grossly unfamiliar with my technical expertise which was the primary requirement for the role. They kept asking me questions from their technical expertise which was not part of my job responsibilities. Imagine a Doctor being interviewed by Engineers. They were also very young and inexperienced.
I was even asked to give a highly technical presentation to a room full of these people. It was very clear that only the hiring manager understood. However, most likely - the other members may not have liked me because who had only a vague idea of what I do.
To top it all - the Hiring Manager was very young - probably her first hire. So she did not have enough pull to hire me even though I could tell she liked my interview & background.
