    Good friends and colleagues,

    Very poor leadership, lots of hot hair and protectionisim of of a select few, Diversity is another word for discrimination. Awful US IT leadership, excruciatingly political, infighting between senior Leaders at VP level,

    I have been working at Eli Lilly and Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some great mentors who are willing to give time to those who want it. With the right management you get to do some awesome science.

    Cons

    Sense of primacy and arrogance of some at corporate centre who do not listen to their OS colleagues. Since Ricks took over with his pandering to the slash-research-maximise-current-product mob the culture has gone to the dogs.

    Advice to Management

    Reign Ricks in.

    I have been working at Eli Lilly and Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I used to love this company. But no more. The new CEO has come in and destroyed this company on less than a year.

    Cons

    All this company cares about now is profits. Pure corporate greed. For the last 18 years we've cared about patients and customers. No more. Money before everything

    Advice to Management

    Sack Dave Ricks. Bring back John Leicleiter. A purpose is more important than profits.


  11. "Great company, great rewards and people too!"

    Cons

    None from what I can remeber.
