    Good long traditional history that place patients and their trust first. Within company, good culture and people.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good flexible approach to global working, with friendly and collaborative staff. Strong and principled Japanese ethics running through company

    Cons

    Poor support from senior management and little HR support in company initiatives - including re-organisations, poor approach to budget spend and over the top and unnecessary business travel.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time "on the ground" to see issues that can be easily resolved and take decisive action on lingering issues.
