I have been working at Astellas Pharma US full-time

Pros

Flexible time to take care of personal / family matters. Great benefits.

Cons

Promotions are rare with minimal career growth. Leadership is scared to speak up; they feel beaten down and not willing to fight for their team. Management and up receive the acknowledgments of individual team members, rather than the individuals. Management receives substantially larger bonus' over their team members (3-4x more), plus much higher wages. Communication is extremely lacking. Senior VP has a tendency to micromanage the entire facility rather than allow them the opportunity to expand and grow with the faith you have rather than continuous doubt (personnel and management).

Advice to Management

Stick up for your teams rather than beat them down...bring them up. Don't speak badly about other teams, but help them help you with better communication, patience and understanding. Have faith in your employees to make the right decisions (senior VP)...allow them to grow by making the decisions they were hired to make. Communicate with personnel to allow them to better understand your expectations, which in turn will allow them the opportunity to grow and expand their experience and value.

    Pros

    Working for Astellas as a company. Good benefits and good package.(but as they say, there is always a catch and If you work in IT ...you are doomed".)

    Cons

    IT department has no strategy. No respect for employees. Leader is over his head, arrogant. Senior IT leaders always find a scape goat to place the blame on. Does not respect diversity, no respect for women. In fact there is no woman who is above the title of senior manager. Very racist. Will work everyone too hard and if one thing goes wrong, the person who works so hard gets fired. There is no alignment within Senior IT leaders and so much in-fighting, politics within such a small team, brings down the morale of the whole team. Contractors and Consultants are treated as 2nd or 3rd class human beings.Total disrespect to consultants & contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Actually this is to the Company Senior Management. Astellas overall is a good place to work but your IT Department is running a "mafia" like operation spoiling the name of the company. Review all the exit interviews from IT, the story will unfold. No prior IT employee will recommend this work place for anyone. Cleanup the IT leadership and make it a great place to work as the rest of Astellas.
