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

    Pros

    Continuing to make great business decisions for company and employees alike, fair and honest, transparent, investing in employees so much more than before, and provide great products to the public. Most managers are great. I don’t feel like I have a lot of managers to report to (hierarchy overload), competitive but rewarding, allowed to make best local decisions for your business, great reputation in the industry. Most noticeable from my last companies is that they take care of and handle everything from meeting and travel logistics to company car, to the everyday tools and resources you need, and a great IT dept for tech needs - it’s all top notch and makes your job so much easier and stress free not to worry about the stuff behind the scenes!

    Cons

    Sometimes the sales results are out of your hands and you can’t control factors the directly affect your sales.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t change most things because it’s a great place to be with great people, services and products, and such great support for employees!
