    Pros

    Family can collect on Life Insurance or Long Term Diasbility

    Cons

    This department has always been toxic and racist and now it is killing people.
    The arrogant leadership is now killing people to save their jobs because of a very poorly planned program. A three year project is being shoved in 9 months..and we have had three emrgencies in the last month with employees being rushed to the hospital, employees are collapsing and literally dying....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs serious overhaul of IT leadership, The department head and all his direct reports need to be replaced immediately for the company to save face! The sweatshop of AMERICA in Northbrook illinois.....

    Pros

    Corporate Benefits, events and community activities.

    Cons

    US IT Department is very toxic as mentioned in previous posts. The management relentlessly pursue promoting themselves. They kept on pursuing computer world to get on to the TOP100 instead of looking at how to foster and grow the department. All the reasons they got this slot point to Astellas corporate benefits and nothing related to working in the IT department. In fact if it was based on IT, and how IT employees feel, they would score the Top 10 in worst places to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT department has no vision and strategy. Runs a Mafia with arrogant and racist leadership. Business gets no benefit from this IT department. Business can get true value of their IT investments if they change the leadership, change the culture and make it a great place to work, like the rest of Astellas.
