    I worked at Eisai -New Jersey full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a handful of truly wonderful people at Eisai, mentors, and leaders are few and far between.

    Your job satisfaction will truly depend on your ability to see past the fog and choose the right business unit to work for. There are many "wolves in sheep clothing" who will scapegoat their teams rather than take ownership of their own leadership shortcomings.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, this company is not even close to what it used to be. Management is menacing and relies on threatening and criticizing employees output levels when over the last 7 years, all employees have been doing is working harder with less and fewer resources all the time. Management misleads employees all the time to paint a difficult but still hopeful business situation. Employee morale is beyond low, and those paying attention know the true writing on the wall.

    Middle managers are not looking to strengthen and build the ranks, to ensure proper training and resources to enable employees to succeed. A manager is not free to make their own decisions on their accounts, instead, you must anticipate and basically be an information scavenger to be able to manage just the basics.

    Every aspect of your job will be dictated by a ladder-climbing supervisor whose sole purpose is to secure their own survival and their view of proper account management is basically doing everything to promote their agenda, not what is best to manage business partner relationships to build trust and alignment.

    Partnership deals are only entered into for the sole purpose of finding a quick way to exit the partnership once the deal is signed, regardless of explicit guidelines and performance based project tracking.

    Advice to Management

    None, advice would be a waste of time. They are not listening.

    Pros

    Base pay is ok. Tenure reps are good to work with until they leave for better opportunity.

    Cons

    Bonus is a joke, upper management will change your goals every month to make sure you hardly get a payout. Turnover is among the highest I ever experienced. They track your driving through the car GPS and don't allow you drive the company car on personal time. Last minute decisions on POA leave you scrambling to manage home life. HR is clueless and seems to be unaware on its purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new President or do something that revamps the company as the current situation is dreadful. Culture is at industry all time low and nobody trust leadership. Things need to change or else you will continue to be a company that is simply a stepping stone for reps always looking for a better opportunity.

    Pros

    The people. I worked there for two years and had the honest pleasure of working with some of the best people I have ever worked with. People I will consider part of my family forever.

    Pay and bonus were at industry standard, although don't count too much on your full bonus

    Cons

    Sadly- almost everything else. Upper management are completely insane and have no idea how to run a company. Everyone with real knowledge has left. They don't understand oncology or neurology- from the science right up to how to predict revenue. The CEO of Oncology is a loud-mouthed, foul bully. BD is completely inept and have no experience or idea what they're doing.

    The company is a serious sinking ship

    Advice to Management

    Change everything. From The CEO Mr. Naito to every single executive across the board. Since it won't happen, there's not much to say that will save this company in the long term.

    Pros

    Good salary and bonus. Manageable workload. Balance of life/work. Could be a dream workplace if you are incompetent, or not motivated.

    Cons

    Bad corporate culture. incompetent management. Top management are prone to take high risks with negative returns. The results: waste of money and talents.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your talents at home. Bring your knee pads to work everyday and you will be fine.
