A Proud History &
Lilly celebrates a long history of commitment to veterans and supporting the military, both in the workplace and in the community. In May 1876, Colonel Eli Lilly founded what would later become the only major U.S. pharmaceutical company founded by a U.S. military veteran. Today, our commitment to our military includes career opportunities, veteran community programs, volunteerism and other aid.
New Mission — Same Strength & Character
What defined you in the military — leadership, discipline, adaptability to change and a mission-driven focus is what we look for and will serve you well at Lilly. As a global health care leader, we give you an opportunity to transition your skills and strengths into important work in the private sector — bringing life-changing medicines to those who need them, improving the understanding and management of disease and giving back to our communities.
