    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo in July 2016.

    Interview

    ~45 minute phoner - mostly a meet & greet. provided them the narrative of how i got here and what i was looking for. Round 1: 3 x 1-hour long sessions with two people in each. There is a system in place where during each round they ask you two very "interview-y" questions. "describe a problem you faced, how you arrived at a solution, and the outcome." "describe a difficult person you worked with, the approach, and the results." things like that. they felt pretty standard. Round 2: felt more like a formality- 30 minutes with immediate supervisor and 30 minutes with compliance officer, and went out to lunch.
