    1/2 day Fridays, every Friday. On-site daycare, beautiful campus, compensation is competitive.

    Pros

    The workplace culture is great. Everyone is friendly and willing to help you with whatever it is you need. The management really tries to guide you in a direction that will help you succeed at the highest level.

    Cons

    Collaborating with someone from another department might mean traveling to other buildings on the Takeda campus.

    Advice to Management

    Have an internal IT department in the same building as the research and development. It will help keep progress flowing and in the right direction.

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    -good amount of marketing material
    -excellent people
    -throughout training

    Cons

    -low salaries compaired to industry average
    -very unagile, unwillingness to adapt marketing messages to specific territories.
    -inconsistent sales messages

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to sales reps in the field and follow through on the new programs you will role out. There was a big push for "local business ownership" that got completely swept under the rug. There were some top accounts that we were unable to reach simply because marketing didn't want to "spend the money". Many of the DMs are from the old Pharma times and are both reluctant and unaware of how access and managed care are actually being conducted.

    Advice to Management

    -Be consistent in regards to sales messaging
    -If you are going to role out a "local business ownership" program follow through

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

    Pros

    Takeda has a lot of promising growth through its oncology & oncology pipeline. Compensation is second to none along with great benefits and a flexible work-life balance (at least in US)
    Company taking measures in trying to "trim the fat"

    Cons

    Decision makers not invested in core revenue generating business and lack knowledge of unique operating models.
    In some cases a real team dynamic operating environment is missing as management units compete against each other to preserve P&L control
    HRM? Yes, they come up with all the catchy work-life dynamics and programs but lack any tangible value when inter-acting with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Know where your true revenue generating businesses are and allow them to have a voice on strategic decisions

    Good pay and benefits. All companies should have same.

    Stop hiring associate directors for undefined roles to stop the mis-communication/direction.
