    Growing company with lots of potential that needs to mature rapidly and is having difficulty doing so.

    Pros

    If you are a motivated individual. the sky is the limit in terms of gaining expertise on new equipment, software, etc. Management is not very technical, and they tend to accept the opinions of Subject Matter Experts. There is also a great deal of potential with this company, but it takes time to realize it.

    Cons

    The environment is very political (at least in IT), which is aggravating at times because you really have to watch what you say and who you say it to. Depending on who you report to, you may be hung for seemingly simple mistakes. Additionally, the company is very aggressively acquiring other companies and product lines, which makes for a lot of surprises in your workload. If you're an adaptable sort, it isn't so bad, exciting actually, but it really rubs people who prefer structured environments the wrong way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think things are moving in the right direction, but it's very frustrating to see really basic things held up by politics and personal agendas. Sometimes you need someone to kick the doors down, shake things up, and make the needed changes, regardless of the consequences. Don't be afraid to take a stand on priniciples. It also seems like a bit of a popularity contest at times in terms of who gets ahead. That kind of thing is poisonous to a corporate culture.

    Pros

    For a person without any prior Pharmaceutical Experience, Eisai offers a great way to gain entry into Pharmaceutical Sales. But unfortunately, both opportunities and advancement are very limited. When I originally joined they had a great bonus and compensation plan but things have changed drastically. They have a new CEO, Lonnel Coates, and the company has taken a serious downward turn. He like many of the Senior Management are great speakers but lack fundamental business sense. Many of the senior managers are incompetent. In addition, they are indifferent to the plight of the sales representative, who works tirelessly to provide them the comfort of their living.

    Cons

    Please see the above post. in one word, Senior Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop counting your money and start compensating your sales representatives.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement due to rapid growth of the company and retention problems. Some exciting products in the pipeline.

    Cons

    Too hierarchical, turning into big pharma, constant fire drills, a few good executives, but a few that are in over their head after promotions they were not prepared for. This is an extremely conservative organization from a legal and regulatory standpoint, which has advantages and disadvantages, but in general is just a good thing to be aware of. Commercial headquarters are in one of the most expensive parts of NJ (Bergen County) and not very close to the rest of the pharma belt. The best of times in pharma are in the rear view mirror in general too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck.

    I worked at Eisai-Japan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Companies ethos is Human Health Care (HHC) and strives to bring better care to patients and allows employees paid time off to contribute to these designated causes

    Cons

    Eisai is a global organisation although heavily influenced by the US office and struggles with cohesive communication channels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful to think globally but act locally and ensure all groups are committed to the same shared goal
