Pros

Benefits, compensation, work life balance, opportunities to excel. Autonomy of the US unit from Japanese HQ, while still supported fiscally and organizationally. Good product pipeline in a tough industry.

Cons

Lack of mature business processes, some - but not most - leaders either need to move on because they are out of date or came up through ranks and don't have necessary skills. Risk of impact from increased governmental regulation and/or universal healthcare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

On a good path already, no specific recommendations.

    Pros

    Company is growing at a time when most companies are downsizing. Salary and benefits are reasonable.

    Cons

    Older facilities, workspace environment could be rennovated, communication within the company is not as good as it could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should hold retreats for middle managers, to improve their supervisory skills. Senior management should take a poll of employee thoughts on where the company is headed.

    I worked at Astellas full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed but very busy when there is a lot to do. Good if you do your work on time and to a high standard. Departments are structured very well and there is a positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Can be quite busy at times and work load becomes too much for one person.
