Welcome to the Lilly India Career page. In this section you will learn more about the Lilly work culture, environment, and the key features of our strong Employee Value Proposition.

Our Employment Philosophy:

One thought can spark curiosity. One step can lead to discovery. One creation can improve the lives of millions. Every decision you make is full of possibilities. Lilly could be your big move to fully realize your potential. Your choice to improve the future.

Innovation is the driving force behind everything we do at Lilly. Our portfolio of best-in-class and first-in-class pharmaceuticals is surpassed only by our drive to develop new and better treatment so people may live longer and fuller lives.

Through our competitive and world class Total Rewards Program, we aim to provide a stimulating and rewarding experience to the talented professionals who work with Lilly. Our pursuit of excellence has enabled us to become proud recipients of a number of coveted awards such as “Great Places to Work ”, “Best Companies to Work for in India” and “Best Employers in India” to name a few.


  • A sense of purpose: Lilly through its medicines and information, provides answers to some of the world’s most urgent medical needs. At Lilly, saving and sustaining lives is our ultimate aim. In India, we are driven by a common vision and we are moving strongly and steadily towards it. Here is your opportunity to become a part of this bold vision, contribute to humanity and grow with a growing organization.

  • Career Growth: At Lilly the diversity of opportunities runs wide and deep .We believe in creating possibilities for our employees. Not only do we foster opportunities for employees to grow vertically, we actively create possibilities for you to add new skills and grow laterally. Our Short-term Assignments (STAs), International assignments and cross-functional movements are just some of the ways to help our employees explore their areas of interest and hone their skills. Our Internal job posting system gives you a chance to explore new areas before anyone else outside, and take that big leap in your career. We have a history of nurturing and promoting our internal talent and the fact that 85% of our leadership positions are closed internally is a testimony to that.

  • Competitive Compensation and Benefits: Lilly is all about helping people live healthy, happy lives. That includes our employees. We believe in compensation that truly expresses appreciation for your contributions and benefits which help you achieve a balance in your life. Our benefits are designed to strengthen your financial well-being, aid you in health matters and encourage you to live a balanced and stress-free life. Our comprehensive life and health insurance plans, rewards and recognition programs and a host of other benefit schemes are designed to make your life better and happier.

  • Leadership Development Programs: At Lilly we believe in well-rounded development of our employees. We train you not only for your current job, but also for the future. We run several global and local training programs in-house, and partner with external training organizations to help employees reach their full potential.

  • Open and non-hierarchical work culture: We can’t be an innovation driven company with a strong ethical backbone until our employees have the environment to innovate and freedom to express. Hierarchy to us is just a structure to manage work, not constrain thoughts. We support our employees to speak-up for what they feel is right and we encourage supervisors to act with fairness and objectivity. Each of our employees continuously focuses on the following four virtues that we have established for Lilly India: Be wise; Be Courageous; Be Fair; Be in Control. Not everything that constitutes an employment experience can be put in words. We welcome you to be a part of the Lilly India family and actually live the experience that we are so proud of.
