ImClone/Eli Lilly was a great company to work for.
Warehouse Technician II (Former Employee), Branchburg, NJJuly 31, 2013
ImClone Systems was a great company to work for. As large as the company was, most employees knew everyone they worked with or on the campus which helped to balance out job tasks and made for a much better day in the long run. Even though the daily tasks were similar, there was always some small detail that was different which helped to make the job – more... more enticing and kept the employees interested. Management were extremely considerate and willing to lend a hand when needed. Always willing to train any employee in another job function to help improve the employees knowledge and resume. – less

Great company to work for, but tough industry to be in.
Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Current Employee), Burbank, CAJune 27, 2013
Pros: company benefits, free lunches, independence, relationships with customers
Cons: industry regulations, customer rejection, the feeling of being micromanaged
Life as a pharmaceutical rep is fun, challenging, and sometimes a bit mundane. It requires a lot of self-motivation to keep it exciting, unless you are undergoing product launches and nationwide corporate initiatives.
They recruit top talent within management and I've been fortunate to have two wonderful managers. However, your work/life balance and – more... relative happiness level on the job is largely indicative of your manager's management style. It is incredibly fun to work in a team environment, unless your team is wrought with egos or indifference. Again, I've been lucky to be a part of great, top-performing teams.
The hardest part of the job is the pressure to consistently exceed quota and interact with challenging customers on a regular basis. The most enjoyable part of the job is to own a territory that is performing well and to call on customers with whom you've established very close relationships. – less

Over-worked
Real Estate Processor/ Closer (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJune 20, 2013
Pros: salary
Management expected processors to work overtime everyday. Majority of processors worked 10 to 12 hours a day. This work schedule conflicted with my personal life.

Company focused on patient. Great work environment.
Senior Sales Representative (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INJune 19, 2013
Pros: medical benefits, company car, expense account
Cons: larger territories since lay-off
Excellent place to work. Management understands that Lilly meds are not appropriate for everone. Focused on positive patient outcomes. Providing solutions to physician/patient challenges is primary focus. Refreshing to be involved with ethical and moral company. Co-workers are very supportive and willing to assist reps that need help (ie. vacation, – more... maternity, sickness, etc.). The hardest part of the job is giving effective and valuable info to a busy physician. Time is limited. Access is becoming increasingly difficult. Established relationships are a huge benefit. I will say that one of the best parts of the job is the interaction with the office staff. When you are able to assist them in some way to help a patient have a positive experience with one of your medications, nothing is more rewarding! – less

Fun place to work. Flexible within reason. Growth potential.
Senior Project Assistant (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJune 14, 2013
Pros: flexibility.
Cons: i was laid off.
My day ranged from a slow steady stream to "I need to reprioritize again". I was able to develop my adminstrative skills to include project support. The environment is social and my colleagues became like a family - with boundaries. The hardest part of the job was convincing our customers to be patient while we found the "right" training solution. The – more... most enjoyable part of the job was delivering a training solution to key stockholders. I also enjoyed lunching with my colleagues. – less

Lilly is a good company to work for. I have had a great career with them. The past 5 years have been some of the most rewarding, personally and professionally.

My direct DSM's were the best people to work for and I enjoyed any time I spent with them. – less
