    Pros

    Any pros would be used in the past tense. Was once a good company. Had good benefits but stripped away over the years.

    Cons

    Sr. Mgt. at a total loss to make changes. Problem is with sr mgt. HR highly negative towards employees, unprofessional. IT in the Stone Age. R&D controlled out of Japan, repeated failures. Certain depts such legal, BD, compliance, hr and finance overstaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Never looked back when I left. Eisai is embarrassing. Anyone looking, avoid at a costs. Yet another round of layoffs coming. Lays offs will not target mgt, that is where the problem is.

    Pros

    They really care about their employees. Very good benefits, better than most companies. I would recommend my friends to work here.

    Cons

    The only things that I can come up with is sometimes the lack luster performers are allowed to continue like they are. And some positions you have to come in as a contractor before getting hired in as company employee

    Advice to Management

    Listen to other employees, about substandard performers and do something about it.

    Pros

    I was paid extremely well as a Specialty Neuro Rep

    Cons

    Constant poorly executed plans. Management forced to run people out to prevent severance packages.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a pipeline and quit wasting enormous amounts of cash on ventures that never happen

  11. Enjoy the people, environment and products manufactured

    Pros

    Supportive environment with an opportunity to learn and grow withing the organization.

    Cons

    As with most companies, budgets never cover everything you want to accomplish

    Advice to Management

    Continue to spend time with your employees, offering mentoring and leadership. Provide an example for employees to follow.
