    Pros

    Career development is a priority and opportunities abound Oncology is one of the best areas to work in pharma Excellent benefits including retirement contribution and long term incentives

    Hard to advance even for excellent performers. Career development does not necessarily equal promotions, but you will get opportunities to make an impact if you want them.

    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Takeda has a great culture - committed to patients, and serious about keeping employees engaged and competitive. Work-life balance is always a challenge but Takeda really helps (ie, flexible hours, on-site gym, on-site daycare).

    Cons

    Takeda is very conservative and as an organization, is slow to innovate and adapt to changes. Also - the IT infrastructure and support is way behind the curve, often making jobs harder.

    Pros

    Great environment and culture, great science, great benefits.

    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Brand and preens of Takeda is still strong in Japan. Work atmosphere is generally OK with OK salary. Nice work life balance assured.

    Cons

    No feeling of achievement due to the totally segmented decision making process which is dispersed across all geographic locations and functions. Unless you are above the rank of functional head, it is almost impossible to understand what is going on, let alone, participating in a strategic decision making process/analysis.
