    Current Employee - Scientific Affairs Manager in Deerfield, IL
    Current Employee - Scientific Affairs Manager in Deerfield, IL

    I have been working at Astellas Pharma US

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (health, dental, life, etc.), company car, strong 401k with additional annual bump
    Good Income/bonus, stock option alternative compared to other companies
    Good vacation time, half day Fridays, very good work-life balance (depending upon your manager)
    Annual year end shutdown between Christmas and New Years

    Cons

    Very, very, very poor management (although some managers are trying to improve and have become much better) Senior Management represents the biggest problem. Many of them are so embarrassing and have no business being employed by the company.
    Some managers are very mean
    Remember, in this line of work, you don't necessarily work for a company, you work for your manager, if they are bad, you are screwed. However, if they are at least decent, you are in a good to great spot.
    Some managers are not very fair in how they share recognition or respect.
    Company can be highly political, especially in certain departments
    Scientific Affairs is a good place to work, but other departments I would not go near.
    Sales force seems to be under a great deal of pressure to deliver.
    Some backstabbing, caddy behavior, and inappropriate behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the ranks. Get competent people who know how to lead.
    There is a lot of things that occur that are highly inappropriate, especially in sales. Most of it has to do with certain managers
