    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Salary is high for a job that is not insanely stressful

    I worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Takeda offers competitive benefits and salary.

    Cons

    Priorities change constantly; daily work doesn't align with strategy. Rewards and recognition, and development opportunities, don't reach all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Align strategy and goals more carefully with compliance/regulatory realities and resource availability. Plan better to prevent emergencies. Give people at all levels the opportunity to get an 'exceeds' performance rating and to develop and be recognized.

    I worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Great colleagues and nice culture. Relaxed atmosphere and great learning environment to use as a stepping stone.

    Cons

    Different rules apply to the Contractors and you're not treated as part of the organization, regardless of what they tell you. Unless you are a permanent employee, I wouldn't bother.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to pay a recruiting company top dollar, you might as well hire direct and include benefits to cut out the middleman. You'll get more employees to stay and have less turnover. They'll also feel like they are part of your team and actually feel valued.

    Cons

    Lots of change in the past year. Not sure what products are in their future.
