    I have been working at Daiichi Sankyo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No experience needed to apply for first time in Pharma. small manageable territories for the most part. pay increase was nice and the incentive package is improving.

    Cons

    Lay off's every year of employment and management is not very open with the direction of the company. unsuccessful launches for products in multiple years has caused a downsize every year.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo.

    Interview

    phone screen consisting of basic interview questions, then moved on to interview via phone with the hiring manager who was confrontational, argumentative and arrogant. I was called back but declined their requests for another interview as I had some other opportunities that were more appealing.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you leave your prior company? Why should we hire you? Why should we look at person who has no experience in this disease state? are you currently receiving a severance?   1 Answer
