Two greatest lies:
Manager - I'm here to help you.
Rep - Glad to see you.
The op reference could not be more true and is certainly not a new revelation. One must always be mindful that profit is ALWAYS the primary objective of a corporation. Anything you do to become a fly in the ointment puts you in a vulnerable position...whether you know it or not.

Sales Solve problems...most of the time. However, if your number is up, nothing will save you.

Look for an article in next months Pharma Exec...it will illustrate the difference between Big Pharma and Biotech. It will flush out the double speak at Lilly and big pharma.
Remember, its not how good you are but who you know and what you are that gets you promoted. Anyone who says different at Lilly is full of it. I was in HR planning sessions and they spend more time on how many minorities and women on on the "G" ready list than discussing who is the best candidate.

That is only half the truth. Yes they do discuss diversity because 80-95% of your DM's and Directors are White males and not many minority group members. I also have sat in the HRP sessions and will be in the ones in March and we do discuss talent across the area because each manager needs to present their people so take your prejudice attitude and one sided views somewhere else. People like yourself insight people on this board with mis information.

Who is being prejudice and whom is being disadvantaged because non-productivity metrics are being weighted to heavily. The big loosers are the shareholders whenever the best candidate is not choosen period. Like it or not Lilly is a publicly traded company.
Its all so easy to put the stamp of "prejudice" or "racist" when someone calls it like they see it. I also find it interesting when you say "your" company and then you say you will be involved in HRP sessions in March. So you must not be "in" the company or you would have said "our" company...right. So in otherwords, you don't know. You won't find documentation on this practice of choosing talent. Its just like market research project from 2001 that said that the number one reason physicians where influence was by the "level of attractiveness" of the rep. This was never released either but we all know its a big consideration.

DIVERSITY RULES AT LILLY. WHITE MALES DO NOT HAVE A CHANCE. HR IS JUST THERE TO CUT YOUR NUTS OFF

That's very interesting that you think that diversity rules.
Clearly, minority employees at Lilly disagree with that assertion.
So I guess the only way to reconcile the disconnect is through the class action suit that will see if the "minorities that rule" are blowing hot air or have substance to their charges.
My specific case - substance! We will see!!
We are not going to back down!!!! We will find out if equal opportunity (not diversity initiatives) exist.
