    I have been working at Eli Lilly and Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have always loved working here but the response during this COVID period has really highlighted what an incredible company this is. We have removed barriers, we have been encouraged to be innovative, we have supported and cared for each other. At the heart of all of our actions has been how can we continue to support the NHS, our employees, our HCPs and the patient. Incredible

    Cons

    None that I can think of
