* A typical day usually started at 8am, either at medical rounds or personal one on one meetings with health care professionals. When ever possible I would arrange a lunch meeting with a key customer, either at a local restaurant or in the cafeteria in the hospital. The afternoon was spent with a few more key customer calls and then in my home office – more... to type up call notes.
* Keeping in front of the customer was paramount to ensure my products were front of mind when decisions were made on which medication they would decide to use.
* Immediate management were always there for support and guidance. Easy to reach and bounce ideas off. If big decisions needed to be made in an account they would readily make themselves available.
* At meetings time was spent bouncing ideas off fellow co-workers on strategies that were effective in the field. Always willing to be available if needed to bounce ideas of each other.
* The hardest part of the job was keeping in front of the customer and having meaningful discussions with key account health care professionals.
* Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing life saving products being used in an effective manor and having the respect of your customers. – less
I have enjoyed my time at Eli Lilly, it has allowed me to progress rapidly within the company but the downside is that financially they pay well below the industry standard. For that reason I am looking to move on

Computer System Validation Lead (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – September 9, 2014
Cons: contractors are not very well respected
I was hired on for an 18 month contract but it was finished in 4 months. They have great training in place but the way you get treated there, as a contractor is not anything to brag about. I felt like a second class citizen. Gyms were only for employees so contractors could watch through the glass but could not use the facility. I was very impressed – more... with how well the training was organized and presented. I learned a lot while I was there. – less

Associate Chemist (Former Employee), Indianapolis – September 1, 2014
The ultimate in corporate beaurocracy. Good pay, good vacation, good benefits. A million levels of management. No one advances to what they're really capable of until higher personel retire. Management has no clue what really goes on in lower ranks. incompetent employees abound.
