    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good amount of vacation time when benchmarked against industry players, Entyvio and Trintellix are great drugs. Honestly can't think of any other pros when compared to industry

    Cons

    Pay/bonus structure lower than industry average, no pipeline, IT is terrible, too many changes in direction have caused sales force to lose faith. Lack of confidence in management due to repeatedly poor decision making and a blame-the-sales-force mentality

    Advice to Management

    Fix the terrible IT systems, bring sales salaries/bonus structure up to par with the real players in the industry, give sales the tools and budgets to properly bring in revenue. Invest in your sales organization.

    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very competitive pay and benefits. Vedolizumab is a great drug.

    Cons

    The assets were too expensive (5+ billion for Ariad? Really?) and the pipeline will be too little/too late to compete in the oncology I/O space with the big boys.

    Advice to Management

    Take the next logical step toward your external focus
