    I have been working at Astellas Pharma US full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Culture is a huge emphasis at this company. Focus is on doing the right thing for patients. Innovation and collaboration are valued.

    Cons

    Common challenges to the pharma industry. Cost, access to products, access to accounts. These are not unique to this company. Relatively flat org chart means fewer promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on corp. culture and people development. It is a strength.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Autonomy to manage my business as I see necessary. Tremendous support for growth and development.

    Cons

    As with all large companies, you must document everything you do to prove your worth and contributions to the company. Not really a con, a necessary component to progress.

    Continue to be transparent.
