    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Wonderful boss and great co workers. Excellent vacation and holiday benefits and paid time off. The products are desirable to sell too.

    Cons

    Territory was extremely large so it was difficult to be in territory early and I got home late everyday. There was a lot of reports to do that did not seem to benefit the business. Routing was undesirable as it was such a large territory that required a lot of travel.
