Worked there for 17 years. Promoted three times. I was fortunate enough to have a manager who was very fair and supportive of my growth. I took the voluntary retirement package in 2017. Very good pay and benefit package.
Pros
Holidays off. Opportunity to purchase additional holidays; great benefit package.
Cons
Some positions do not have much opportunity for growth, i.e. Admin. Assistants.

It is a very diverse company with many different groups throughout. I work on calendars and events most days. The culture is full of extremely nice people. The hardest part is being a part of the Administrative Services Center. We are limited on what we are allowed to help our people with, which isn't much. I feel they could utilizing us more.

constant changes with minimal notification or training opportunities if you did not hold a professional degree or licensure No room for advancement diversity of women in other roles or opportunities would have been desired - very much a "man's world still" unless you possess higher education

Not Applicable. I have no desire to say anything about this company. I would like to move forward with searching through your open job position. I can't move forward because you don't understand that I don't need or want to saying anything about the company.

Eli Lilly is an excellent company to work for. The companies commitment to diversity and inclusion is what drew me to the company and it has continued to expand their inclusion programs and acknowledge the different cultures within the workforce. Benefits are really great. Health, Vision and dental benefits are among the best I've experienced. Excellent time off benefits: Vacation, sick time, personal time, bereavement, maternity, etc. Unfortunately, management and the overall Administrative Service department is lacking a lot of direction and connection with the Administrative assistants in the group. My manager in particular is very unorganized does not provide accurate information and often creates issues within the group. Micro-managing is a huge pain point in our group. The disconnect between the ASC and the departments that the Admins support is vast and there have been no efforts to bridge that gap.
Pros
Diversity and company benefits
Cons
Management within Administrative Services(ASC)

I saw permanent full-time employees receive the benefits and compensation for my work. Even though they tell you up-front fixed duration employees do not get hired, you still hold out hope that your performance would win out in your favor. Lilly banks on this in the relationship and they become the multifaceted winners.
Pros
Exciting place to work; brilliant people; fast paced.
Cons
Purging and re-emerging of positions dictated by Lilly's culture.

I was very young when I started working at Lillys . I am now retired but I am very grateful I had the opportunity to ba part of this company's workforce. I personally feel they take care of their employees especially in this very difficult economic time. I work for 33 years at this company and had probably 15 or more different jobs . I was able to learn so much and meet so many wonderful people. We honestly felt like a close family in some of the areas I worked . Very grateful !
Pros
Benefits, classes, pay, hours.
Cons
Very competitive atmosphere

Diverse Place to work, there are all types of employees here that have a wide variety of skills. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with different people. The downside is there is not much room for career development if you are on the B-Path which is support fields. It is rare that a person crosses over to the professional path.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
not much room for advancement on the support path

I thoroughly enjoyed working for Lily. They treat each of their employees with respect and dignity. I left because the work hours didn't support my need to care for my growing family.
