    Pros

    Great culture and products. I was also blessed to work with 2 very amazing ladies who helped me become better in my day to day selling and admin.

    The typical risks of working in big pharma. Job security is always uncertain year over year.

    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very nice culture and the products they have are top notch--best in market.

    Cons

    Even after the purchase of Shire, Poor pipeline while several products are about to LOE. It has become a "layoff company." Not aggressive getting products on managed care. Now, pretty large territories, often solo, competing v other products with teams. Launching products is a huge weakness for the marketing dept. Even naming of new products has been a disaster (ex: Nesina diabetes family of products...3 totally different and unrelated names); (ex #2: one of the rare companies to have needed to change a drug's name post-launch, and Takeda had to do it TWICE!! Kapidex-Dexilant, Brintellix-Trintellix). You must go to the home office in Chicago (now Boston) and training department in order to advance, with very few exceptions. They did away with pensions a few years ago.

    Pros

    Culture, work-life balance, used to feel like a work family

    Cons

    Culture and Morale has changed drastically since the Shire merger. The company let go of some great reps. More importantly; if you want to promote you don’t have to sell good, so don’t worry about winning just formulate good spreadsheets and talk a good talk. Most of the current managers are coaching reps to win but they haven’t won much (if any) themselves. Large territories for non-specialty drugs. If you want to sell one of their specialty drugs it may be best for you to leave and come back because it seems they don’t have confidence in their own reps (unless you’re legacy Shire).
