    I worked at Eisai Medical Research full-time

    Pros

    Computer systems in the datacenter and the desktop are top notch. Eisai takes Disaster Recovery and data reliability seriously. The culture of integrity, respect, professionalism, quality and teamwork is very important at Eisia and stressed in all corners of the enterprise. Eisai management has some very forward looking plans and makes change slowly and steadily over many years, so as not to shock the system.

    Cons

    The internal procedures for documentation of change controls takes too long, still relying on paper in some ways. This needs to be completely digital, without paper and pen.
    Eisai is still on the typical corporate trail of blackberry. They have not taken social media seriously. The have heavily invested in outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money in IT where it counts. Go digital everywhere. Leave Lotus Notes behind and join the rest of the world. Step away from the outsourcing as quickly as possible - it saved no money.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package was offered. People were very friendly. Management was proactive to share information at least quarterly on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Current downsizing has made it necessary to let people go. I wouuld love to go back when they are on track.

    Advice to Management

    Follow more realistic projection to avoid surprises. Please respond to questions asked at town halls when promise of responses are made.
