Purchase to Pay (Former Employee) –  Cork, Ireland4 January 2019
I worked for 6 years in the financial service centre in Ireland. In this company they value their employees and they try to improve everyday always thinking about the employees. I gain great experience in an international environment, I left the job for personal circumstances but I would have loved to continue working in such a great environment.
Pros

Commissioning Planner (Former Employee) –  Kinsale, County Cork11 May 2018
The day started at 7:00 am until 6:00 pm, after a long 1 hr 20 min commute and I would focus on closing out my scope of work, which took main priority. However, I would be asked to help out with other areas of work, to achieve schedule dead lines for others. This gave me a better understanding of other disciplines.
The management structure was well taught out and the company procedures well put together.
The team was helpful and had the occasional jokes, everyone got on with their work load as best as possible.
The hardest part of the day was the afternoon around 4 pm. Just had to refocus and keep mindful until 6:00 pm.
The most enjoyable part of the day was going home. Long hours and intense workload, you needed a break. Oh! Pay day was nice too :-)
Pros
free Turkey at Christmas
Cons
long hours

False ethics, pseudo care about people
CMS Analyst (Former Employee) –  Cork29 March 2018
Lack of transparency in transferring KB. Lazy and fool micromanagement. Company is populating kind of "human care" while never minding about employees
Fake culture, values and false ethics.
Employees are boring and love create rumours, intrigues, fights and scandals.
Workload has a significant seasonal fluctuation, but employees do not stops complain on "heavy job" and "busiest time".
Worst management have to expect from team leaders.
I do not recommend waist time with this employer.
Pros
new skills in complains
Cons
all the rest

Customer Meeting Services Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cork8 January 2018
I have worked in Eli Lilly more than 3 years. The company has great business culture. It is a very serious place with the dress code. You usually work 7 hours a day which is an advantage.

Great Place to Work
P2P Specialist - Disbursements (Current Employee) –  Cork3 March 2017
Lilly is a great place to work especially if you are only starting out in the financial services sector. The people are very nice and the work life balance is excellent. Management are easily approachable and really spend time making sure the job your doing is the right fit firstly and then develop you accordingly. My only criticism is that progression within the company is hard to achieve in certain departments.

QC analyst intern (Former Employee) –  Cork24 May 2016
At Eli Lilly the typical word day is busy yet manageable. I learnt to work well as a team member and the learnt the value of good lab practice.

There was no sense of hierarchy in the company.
Co-workers were friendly and approachable.
The hardest part of the job was time constraints.
The most enjoyable part was meeting with the entire team to review our progress each week.
Pros
subsidised lunches
Cons
work load

Summer Std. (Former Employee) –  Upstream team IE4329 March 2016
Eli Lilly is a company which values its employees contributions. A productive and welcoming workplace environment is an important part of the company Ethos. They ensured that, as a summer student, I was given every opportunity to gain experience of the various production and laboratory processes. This made my job here very interesting and worthwhile.

Excellent place to work
Undergraduate Quality Control Analyst (Former Employee) –  Cork7 June 2015
Excellent place of work with a very friendly environment. Through regular pharmaceutical API testing using a number of analytical techniques one gained a wider prospective of what a pharmaceutical industry entitles and what is required from an individual. Management is extremely helpful and friendly ready to give support if needed.
