Eli Lilly and Company experience report

  • 15.Mar 2019
  • Employee

Great place to get your foot in the door and then get out. Stagnant culture

2.89

Company Culture

Good place to start your pharmacy career, but limited development opportunities and low pay.

Support from management

Varies by manager, but my manager was rigid and unhelpful

Teamwork

Team goals.

Freedom to work independently

Too many metrics — got in the way of seeing customers

Internal Communication

Clear communication for the most part

Gender Equality

Not equal. Not even close.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you are over 40, time to start lookong elsewhere

Career Development

No field based opportunities

Overall compensation for your work

Horrible compensation compared to others

Work-Life Balance

Great time off options

Challenging Work

Appropriately challenging

Inclusive / Diverse

They talk diversity all day long, and only support stupid ideas from diverse and under qualified individuals. Disgusting. You have to be non-white to be promoted.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire Dave Ricks and provide your employees with fair compensation and opportunities to develop

What I like about the company

Very family friendly and good if you enjoy travel.

What I dislike about the company

Dave Ricks, CEO. There aren’t enough expletives in the English language to express my disdain for him.
