The company gives you great room to grow and excel.
The walk from the parking lot but that could be a good thing as well.

I like my co-workers and business partners.
Management is tracking employees onsite presence. Management keeps pushing out the date to upgrade ERP system, even though current version is no longer supported. Management feels it's more important to spend money constructing a new building in downtown Boston (which there are already Takeda sites) instead of upgrading the ERP system.

- genuinely happy and supportive co-workers - fast paced - opportunity for collaboration - opportunity for advancement without necessarily needing additional advanced degrees - plenty of resources - competitive salary - competitive benefits
- such a massive organization that it can be easy to feel siloed after a while - not many opportunities for new grads except for research associate positions (lab-based) - I did not always feel that my opinion was valued as a junior employee (was told I would have an exit interview before my last day, but was never contact to provide any feedback about my experience)

Can’t think of any honestly.
Nepotism is the true culture. There are too many people in leadership positions that have no business being in them. However, it’s a game of cliques. While the company culture praises DEI, digital data and innovation, DEPARTMENTS make up their own culture which frowns upon ideas, innovation and creativity having being told on more than one occasion that they are not looking to change anything. It’s unfortunate that leadership has no understanding of any CFR/ICH/GCP/MHRA guidelines and frequently communicate directives in direct violation of all of the above. If you highlight it, you then become the target of bullying, harassment, abuse and intimidation. The issues with data becoming so large that there literally is no way to correct them and expect the company to remain operational. Considering the power trip and narcissism of the leadership team, they micromanage all aspects of work thereby making even project managers nothing more than administrative assistants. For every digital solution the narcissistic leadership that has no interest in learning technology, implements a counterproductive manual process so they can understand… rather than training to learn. Quality is in the toilet with inconsistent, inaccurate data floating that is known to be wrong. The importance of an eTMF is not understood so little to no time is spent on ensuring inspection readiness as years long trials have a handful of documentation filed.10

Benefits are highly competitive, most people area great to work with, and the knowledge that your work contributes significantly to patients who need medicine we produce.
Location is a bit far away from most metro areas, making commuting a stressor
- 5.0Nov 27, 2023Associate DirectorCurrent EmployeeCambridge, MA
Open culture, care about employees, great work-life balance.
No clear criteria for how the role level was decided, for example, they may give the same level of roles to a ph.D degree holder with 10 years of experience and an undergraduate degree holder with less than 5 years of experience.
- 3.0Nov 28, 2023Project LeaderCurrent Employee, more than 8 yearsBannockburn, IL
Good vacation pay, insurance, benefits.
Leadership does not want any remote workers. Work Life balance doesn't exist for most.
- 4.0Dec 3, 2023Medical Information ManagerFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsBoston, MA
Great culture where work life balance is encouraged and people are nice
Products are not doing so well

I was recently brought on and had a very smooth onboarding process. Very excited to learn and get acclimated with this new role. Very clear breakdown of expectations and very intentional training process
No Cons at this time!1

Takeda is a terrific company to work for and if you have the niche experience to work for them, you will want to stay! What I found working here is there is alot of tenure employees some 5 years and even some 20+ years staying through mergers, the employees just dont want to leave. I found out why?: Takeda is low stress, so if you have the skillset you will be just fine. Takeda offers generous work from home time. Company credit card Laptop Free meals and or snacks Benefits are off the charts People are great! The hire a certain type of person and people are very happy to work here and to help.
You must forge your own path to promotion. If you are not hungry, you will not get fed. Not really a con, just depends on the individual.3
